2011 Kia Sportage Named IIHS Top Safety Pick

The new generation of Kia Sorento is such an amazing car. It’s gradually reaching the markets all around the world, but already it’s won many awards and has been praised by journalists because of the values it delivers.

The latest award in Sportage’s portfolio is the “2010 Top Safety Pick” given to it by American Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Arriving in Kia showrooms now, Sportage received the organization’s top honor by earning “Good” ratings — the highest achievable — in frontal, side, rear and rollover impact crash safety tests.


The Sportage joins 2010 Forte compact sedan, 2010 Soul urban passenger vehicle and 2011 Sorento compact crossover utility vehicle (CUV), which have also won the award before.

“The Kia brand is committed to providing consumers with the highest levels of passenger safety by providing a comprehensive list of cutting-edge technologies and features for increased crash protection,” said Michael Sprague, vice president, marketing & communications, Kia Motors America (KMA). “The 2011 Sportage’s sleek and modern appearance continues Kia’s design-led transformation while staying true to the company’s core philosophy of providing consumers with exciting, fun-to-drive vehicles with high levels of value, quality and safety.”
