The 2017 Kia Sorento earned a top rating of “Good” the five crashworthiness tests and a superior rating specifically for the front crash prevention system that is optional on this vehicle. These two aspects helped the 2017 Kia Sorento qualify for this rating. Other driver’s assistance safety features on this vehicle include Autonomous Emergency Braking, Advanced Smart Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning System, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Light technology, high-beam assist, and rear parking assist. This vehicle is available in five trim levels.

“These results are a clear indication that Kia places a high priority on safety by offering advanced crash avoidance technologies and enhancing vehicle structure through the use of advanced high-strength steel,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning, KMA. “We are proud that the Kia Sorento received strong ratings across the board, and having earned the prestigious Top Safety Pick Plus award bolsters our strong safety record and the integrity of our products.”
