The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has awarded its best rating possible, Top Safety Pick Plus (TSP+), to the 2018 Kia Soul when equipped with HID head lights - offered on the Primo Lit package - and the 2018 Kia Sportage built after June 2017 when equipped with newly acceptable-rated HID head lights that are standard on the SX Turbo trim.

"Kia's world-class lineup continues to earn quality, reliability and safety awards at an increasing rate and these IIHS TSP+ ratings for the Soul and Sportage reflect Kia's continuous improvement and effort to improve all aspects of safety," said Orth Hedrick, Vice President, Product Planning, KMA.

To qualify for TSP+, the IIHS testing parameters require a vehicle earn 'good' ratings in five crashworthiness tests - small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side impact, roof strength and head restraints - as well as an 'advanced' or 'superior' rating for front crash prevention and an 'acceptable' or 'good' rating in head light testing. The Soul and Sportage join four other Kia vehicles that have received the TSP+ rating from the IIHS - the Forte, Optima, Cadenza and Sorento.
