Kia Sorento Awarded "Top Safety Pick" by Insurance Institute for Highway Safety

Joining the 2010 Forte compact sedan and 2010 Soul urban passenger vehicle, the 2011 Sorento compact utility vehicle has been recognized as a "Top Safety Pick" by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in the midsize SUV category when built after March 2010. Sorento, which went on sale earlier this year, received the organization's top honor by earning "Good" ratings – the highest achievable – in frontal, side, rear and rollover impact crash safety tests. The Sedona minivan also received the IIHS "Top Safety Pick" and "Safest Minivan Ever Tested" distinction shortly after its launch in 2006, and again in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
