The new 2019 Kia Sorento has been awarded Top Safety Pick+ by the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. That makes it eight in a row for Kia making it the top automaker in the world for Top Safety Pick rated vehicles.

The 2019 Kia Sorento joins the 2018 Kia Forte, 2018 Kia Optima and 2018 Kia Soul in holding Top Safety Pick+. They also join the 2018 Kia Cadenza, 2018 Kia Sedona, 2018 Kia Sorento and 2018 Kia Sportage who hold Top Safety Pick ratings.

The 2019 Kia Sorento received good ratings in all IIHS crash tests and ‘Good’ for the headlights when equipped with LED headlights on models that also have autonomous emergency braking. This new headlight test has caught a few automakers napping and they are only now beginning to catch up. Kia is one automaker that is ahead of the curve.

2019 Kia Sorento
The 2019 Kia Sorento is an incremental update that sees a new grille and headlights, LED lighting option, new taillights and bumper and new alloy wheels. The Sorento already had an exceptional design, great interior and reliable engines so there was no real need to mess with it too much.

The Kia Sorento is known for being one of the best value vehicles on the market. With a mature design, family-friendly interior and a ton of options for the money, it is no wonder that it is a best-seller for Kia.

It is available with either a 2.4-litre four cylinder that produces 185 hp or a 3.3-litre V6 that produces 290 hp. The 2.0-litre turbo is no longer offered. Both use a new eight speed automatic transmission or six speed auto for the 2.4, to power the front or all wheels.

The 2019 Kia Sorento is tuned for comfort and confident road handling. The vehicle cruises effortlessly and can turn and corner with the best of them. The torque-vectoring system of the V6 just adds to that confidence when things get twisty as it ensures power is delivered to the wheels with the most grip, offering a very smooth experience.

One thing where the 2019 Kia Sorento really stands out is by punching above its weight. Many people look at the price and assume you get a clunky, unrefined SUV for that kind of cash. I say drive it before you judge it. You don’t need to pay over the odds just to get a family car that is safe, full of technology and that performs well. Now, with the Top Safety Pick+ rating, there is another compelling reason to try it!
