Kia Sportage Safety RatingsThe Kia Sportage Safety Ratings are an apt way to determine just how protective this SUV is while maneuvering around Novi, Livonia, and Southfield.

All things safety in the Kia Sportage will be touched on in this insightful guide. And, if you want to hop into the driver's seat and see what it's like behind the wheel, contact Feldman Kia!

 

NHTSA KIA SPORTAGE SAFETY RATING

Kia sportage safety interiorWe'll be looking at the safety ratings given out by two separate entities for the Kia Sportage, with the first being the NHTSA. NHTSA stands for National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Their goal is to provide clear feedback on the safety of a model in different situations, and when pressure is applied to different aspects of the vehicle.  
Five stars is the highest rating a vehicle can achieve, and the Kia Sportage scored exactly that. To reach this aim, the Sportage had to perform admirably on a few specific tests. The results of the various tests are listed below, rated on a scale of 1-5:

Overall Front Star Rating- 4

Front Driver Side- 4

Front Passenger Side- 5

Overall side Star Rating- 5

Rollover Star Rating- 4

 

IIHS KIA SPORTAGE SAFETY RATING

The IIHS or International Institute for Highway Safety is the second group we'll be looking to for accurate ratings on the Kia Sportage model's overall safety. The rating system for IIHS begins at the bottom with Poor, and improves from there with Marginal, Acceptable, and Good-Good being the highest.
An extensive number of different tests are performed by the IIHS. Each one targets a particular aspect of the vehicle, and this thorough analysis is part of why IIHS is so highly regarded in their studies. The Kia Sportage, in line with the NHTSA ratings, had an exemplary run through the tests with key outcomes including:

Small overlap front: driver side- Good

Small overlap front: passenger side- Good

Moderate overlap front- Good

Side- Good

Roof strength- Good

Head restraints & seats- Good
