KIA HAS THE MOST VEHICLES WITH TOP SAFETY PICK AND TOP SAFETY PICK PLUS RATINGS FROM INSURANCE INSTITUTE FOR HIGHWAY SAFETY

IRVINE, Calif., July 25, 2019 —Kia has more vehicles with Top Safety Pick (TSP) and Top Safety Pick Plus (TSP+) ratings than any other brand. The new distinction was achieved when the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently awarded Top Safety Pick to the new 2020 Kia Telluride, which received “Good” ratings in all six IIHS crashworthiness tests and an “Acceptable” rating for headlights.

“We are extremely proud of this significant achievement,” said Orth Hedrick, Executive Director, Car Planning & Technology, KMA. “We constantly strive to build the best quality and safest vehicles possible and being the automaker with the most TSP and TSP+ ratings is ultimately gratifying.”

To qualify for 2019 Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must earn good ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests, as well as an acceptable or good rating in the passenger-side small overlap front test. It also must earn an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and an acceptable or good headlight rating.
