The new 2019 Kia Stinger has earned top safety ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This new Kia sports sedan was awarded the best possible rating of Top Safety Pick Plus (TSP+) when equipped with optional Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection and LED headlights. The Stinger’s TSP+ rating increases the total number of Kia vehicles with 2019 Top Safety Pick3 or Top Safety Pick Plus4 ratings to 10.
In order to qualify for a 2019 TSP+ award, a vehicle must earn “Good” ratings in six crashworthiness tests – driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint – as well as an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating for front crash prevention and a “Good” headlight rating. The Stinger earned “Good” ratings for all six crashworthiness tests, and a “Superior” rating for the optional front crash prevention system, which helped it avoid collisions in the IIHS’s 12-mph and 25-mph track tests. The “Good” rating for the headlights applies to the Stinger’s static LED projector headlights.
