4 Reasons to Drive an Award Winning Kia
Over the years Kia vehicles have won many awards, and the 2018 models are no different. Whether it is for safety, innovation, or quality, Kia vehicles stand out among their competitors. Here are some reasons to drive an award-winning Kia.
2018 Kia Sedona
The 2018 Kia Sedona was awarded the IIHS top safety pick award. It earned good safety crash ratings in the small overlap front, moderate overlap front, and side tests along with good ratings for roof strength and head restraint tests. Kelly Blue Book also named the 2017 Kia Sedona the best family car. KBB bases this award on safety features, entertainment technology, and drivability. The Sedona offers its passengers a quiet and comfortable ride with smooth acceleration.
2018 Kia Stinger
The all-new 2018 Kia Stinger won Best in Show at the 2017 North American International Auto Show and the EyesOn Design Award for Production Car Design Excellence. This performance sedan was also named the AutoGuide.com 2018 Car of the Year. It won this award for its driving dynamics and its sleek, cool exterior that sets it apart from all the other new 2018 vehicles. The team of editors that chose the Stinger found the car fun to drive and confirmed that it lived up to the hype surrounding its release.
2018 Kia Sportage
The 2018 Kia Sportage was given one of the IIHS’ highest safety ratings: the Top Safety Pick+ award. This is the first time the Sportage received this award since 2010, although many other Kia models have had the honor in recent years.
The 2018 Sportage received good ratings in all of the five crash tests, and it also earned a superior crash avoidance rating when equipped with the Technology package that includes automatic emergency braking. With this package, the Sportage avoided collisions in both the low-speed tests when going 12 miles per hour and in the high-speed tests when going up to 25 miles per hour. It also received an acceptable rating for the headlights in the SX Turbo trim.
Not only did the 2018 Kia models earn awards, but the 2017 models also received some new awards. J.D. Power named the 2017 Kia Niro the Highest Ranked Small SUV in Initial Quality. J.D. Power bases this award on an initial quality study based on thousands of responses from customers. It includes almost 200 models, and it ranks the opinions of the owners of new 2017 vehicles after driving the cars for 90 days. Kelly Blue Book also named the 2017 Kia Niro one of the Ten Best Hybrid Cars Under $40,000.
