We know how impressive that sounds, but the Sportage also took home the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) “Top Safety Pick” in 2016, 2017, and 2018. It’s also a Kelly Blue Book “Top 10 Most Awarded Vehicle,” and an Autotrader “Must Test Drive” vehicle.
The Sorento holds true to the Kia quality standard and slogan “the power to surprise” taking the #1 IQS spot away from the competition in 2017 (moving up from #2 in 2016). It was the IIHS “Top Safety Pick” in 2016 and 2017, and has been accredited with a 5-star Safety Rating from the (NHTSA) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Red Dot Design Honorable Mention Award in 2016, and Automobile Journalists Association of Canada’s (AJAC) “Best New SUV” in 2016.
Kia offers a standard 5-year 100,000 km full comprehensive warranty and 5-year unlimited km Roadside Assistance, giving you peace of mind over and above Kia’s consistently proven quality. That’s a full 2 years and 40,000 km warranty over Honda’s 3 year 60,000 km warranty.
No matter what trim you’re looking at, a Kia shines. Let’s meet in the middle (trim), and sink into the Sportage and Sorento’s beautiful interior.
