Kia SUV and Minivan Safety Awards | Harlingen, TX
Whether you are an educator, medical professional, parent, or just an everyday driver, safety technology should be — and likely is — a top priority when you are searching for a new vehicle for transporting students on field trips, visiting patients at home, and carting the kids to baseball practice. We recommend a Kia SUV or minivan, which are known for their advanced safety, as evidenced by the multitude of awards they’ve earned from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
2019 Kia Soul
The 2019 Soul is the smallest SUV in the Kia lineup, but safety does not take a backseat. The new Soul earned a Top Safety Pick distinction from the IIHS when properly equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights. The Kia Soul comes standard with a Rear View Monitor and is available with Smart Cruise Control.
2019 Kia Sportage
The 2019 Kia Sportage SUV earned the IIHS’s top rating of Good across all crashworthiness tests, including small overlap front (driver- and passenger-side), moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seat. The new Sportage comes standard with Auto Emergency Braking and Lane Keeping Assist.
2019 Kia Sedona
The 2019 Kia Sedona minivan also fared well in IIHS testing, earning top scores in the small overlap front driver-side, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seat tests.
