If you’re looking for a vehicle that is both powerful and safe, look no further than the 2019 Kia Stinger. This performance-oriented ride was recently awarded the Institute of Highway Safety’s highest possible safety rating, the 2019 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+, for models equipped with the optional Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection technology and LED headlights.
“No detail was too small to be obsessed over during the Stinger’s development process,” said Michael Cole, chief operating officer and EVP, KMA. “Stinger was engineered to be the fastest and highest performing vehicle in Kia’s history, undergoing the company’s most intense R&D effort to date, but it also continues Kia’s tradition of offering advanced collision avoidance systems. Earning another TSP+ award is just one more piece of evidence demonstrating our commitment to ‘Give it Everything.’”
To earn the title of IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+, the Stinger had to earn the top rating of “Good” in six crashworthiness tests. It also had to earn an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating for its front-crash prevention — it earned the highest “Superior” rating — and a “Good” rating for its headlights.
This accolade for the Stinger makes it the 10th Kia vehicle to earn the title of either 2019 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK or 2019 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+. To see for yourself why Kia has one of the safest lineups in the industry, experience your favorite firsthand at Gossett Kia South.
