Kia is Among Top Three Brands with Most 2019 IIHS Safety Awards

Kia Motors America is thrilled to say that a total of eight new Kia models meet or exceeds the requirements to place in the 2019 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Awards. After a tightening of the crash standards that the IIHS has been employing for years, Kia ranks among the top three brands to garner the most awards this year. The all-new 2019 Kia Forte, which we’re proud to sell at Mastria Kia, is among the most awarded vehicles in this year’s IIHS awards.

Even more excited than us is the Director of Car Planning and Telematics at Kia Motors America, Orth Hedrick. He said, “We are honored to receive so many IIHS safety awards across our lineup, especially considering these designations are much harder to achieve in 2019. The IIHS safety awards are highly regarded by today’s consumers, and we see these latest accolades as validation of Kia’s dedication to its customers and to the continuous efforts to build better and safer vehicles.”

Among the Kia vehicles that received a Total Safety Pick Plus rating are the 2019 Forte, 2019 Niro, 2019 Niro Plug-In Hybrid, 2019 Optima and 2019 Sorento. The 2019 Rio, 2019 Soul and 2019 Cadenza all received an “acceptable” or “good” rating, making them all 2019 Top Safety Picks.

This should come as no surprise to our valued Kia customers, as Mastria Kia is always dedicated to getting drivers into some of the safest vehicles on the road. And with these accolades from the 2019 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Awards, what we’ve always known about the new lineup of Kia models got recognized nationally.
