2016 Kia Sorento and Nissan Sentra score top with IIHS

2016 Kia Sorento and Nissan Sentra score top with IIHS


We always
knew the Sorento and Sentra were good cars as we regularly drive them ourselves
but it's nice when other people realize it too. The people at the Insurance
Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have awarded the 2016 Kia Sorento and the 2015
Nissan Sentra top marks across the board. 
So now, as well as being a fantastic car to drive and own, the 2016 Kia Sorento is now a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS. That not only helps consumer confidence but also shows Kia are determined to continue to improve quality everywhere.

2016 Kia Sorento

the 2016 Sorento earned the maximum "good" rating in all tests, including the
tough small overlap test. The small overlap test is important as it recreates a
common collision type where the corner of the car hits another car corner or
immovable object. As this is something we see on our streets all the time, it's
a useful test to have performed in the laboratory.

The newly
redesigned car also only allowed four inches of penetration in the physical
intrusion test this time round where the previous model allowed eleven. The
airbags also improved occupant safety, enabling the test dummy to avoid all
hard surfaces within the cabin.

2015 Nissan Sentra

The 2015 Nissan
Sentra also scored well in the IIHS tests. The redesigned model
lifted itself from poor in the small overlap test up to good this time round.
Thanks to some redesigning at the structural level, the car is now safer than
ever before. So if you think the 2015 Nissan Sentra hasn't changed much from
the previous model, you might want to think again!

in the front end, pillars and sills helped elevate the Sentra in these tests.
Lengthening the curtain airbags also helped it achieve Top Safety Pick
alongside the Sorento.

Both the 2016Kia Sorento and 2015 Nissan Sentra are solid cars that are exceptionally
popular with buyers. The Sorento is a crossover SUV that delivers a comfortable
ride, plenty of room for passengers and cargo and lots of technology. The
Nissan Sentra is a solid midsize sedan that gets thousands of people where they
need to go in comfort.

Both can
now be regarded as some of the safest cars in their class too!
