Kia is well-known for providing drivers with reliable, smart and advanced vehicles for prices that won’t break the bank. This makes them suitable models for every type of demographic, from free-spirited young adults to straight-laced professionals looking for a budget-friendly trip to and from work. The Kia Soul has long been a champion for both distinct groups, partially because of its quirky and carefree design, but also because of how well it can bring your peace of mind to the forefront of every ride. To see what we mean, come check out the 2018 Kia Soul safety ratings and available driver assistance innovations! 

2018 Kia Soul IIHS safety rating 

Throughout history, one of the most trusted organizations in the vehicle safety segment has been the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS), whose Top Safety Pick award is highly coveted by most manufacturers. To earn Top Safety Pick designation, vehicles must score “Good” on five crashworthiness tests, including Small and Moderate overlap fronts, side strength, roof restraints, and head restraints/seats.  

The 2018 Soul has been able to go above and beyond in these key measures, also earning Top Safety Pick Plus status because of its “Superior” front crash prevention and superb headlight operation!
