The new generation of Kia Sorento SUV (or CUV as the company calls it) is not only stylish, practical and efficient, also as it turns out it is also one of the safest crossovers in the market to day.
The car has been awarded as a “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in the midsize SUV category. Sorento receives top ratings for front, side, rollover, and rear impact protection.
The car is packed by lots of safety features including driver and passenger advanced front airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, side curtain airbags and front active headrests, four-wheel Antilock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD). Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) and Downhill Brake Control (DBC) also come standard on all models.
“In addition to offering consumers outstanding quality, appealing new design, comfort and value, the Kia brand is first and foremost committed to providing the highest levels of passenger safety,” said Michael Sprague, vice president, marketing of Kia Motors America (KMA). “The 2011 Sorento is an example of Kia’s ongoing and rapid vehicle expansion, demonstrating that buyers can have an affordable, well-equipped and attractive CUV without sacrificing impressive levels of crash protection.”
