JOLIET, Ill., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Affordable family-focused vehicles that are reasonably equipped and offer the space and comfort necessary for long trips and daily commutes are hard to find. As many families look for a well-rounded, reliable vehicle that fits within their budgets and meets their driving demands, the 2014 Kia Sorento answers the call time and time again.
Now, it is answering the call with a new five-star crash test safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The top-selling crossover SUV earned the highest possible overall score from the NHTSA by excelling in several individual test categories.
As pieces of the overall safety puzzle, the 2014 Kia Sorento scored five stars in both frontal and side-impact crash tests while earning four stars in rollover tests. The new Sorento also was named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
"Built on an all-new platform, the redesigned Sorento utilizes Kia's advanced safety equipment and technologies to provide a high level of occupant protection for drivers and their families as measured by the U.S. government," said Orth Hedrick, executive director, product planning, Kia Motors America.
In addition to its crash test performance and top safety scores, the Kia Sorento also offers drivers advanced preventative safety measures like a blind-spot monitoring system, which is standard on the SX trim level and optional throughout the model lineup.
