2017 Kia Sorento Safety Features
No detail has been overlooked on the design of the 2017 Kia Sorento. Take for example the body, 53% of it is now composed of high-strength steel. It is no surprise that this midsize SUV was awarded a top safety pick by Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. In order to qualify for this much coveted award a vehicle has to earn “good” ratings in 5 crashworthiness tests and an “advanced” or “superior” rating in front crash prevention. The overall structure of the 2017 Kia Sorento is essentially the same as the 2016 model. Where the 2017 delivers increased safety measures is with the addition of an optional front crash prevention system. What are the Kia Sorento Safety Features?
“Increased use of advanced high-strength steel and additional structural reinforcement have resulted in improved torsional rigidity, which pays dividends behind the wheel in the form of better ride comfort and driving dynamics. Couple that with significant reductions in NVH and it’s clear that the 2016 Sorento sets Kia’s new standard for the blending of refinement and capability.”-Orth Hedrick, vice president, Product Planning, KMA.
