    2020 Kia Soul Earns Top Safety Pick

    Kia Motors is one proud automobile company today. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)’s TOP SAFETY PICK+ presented a major award to the brand new 2020 Kia Soul. Based on various specifications, the 2020 Soul won one of the highest safety recognitions in the world.


    Who is the award given to? 
    They designate the TOP SAFETY PICK+ to those car brands that have performed phenomenally well in safety tests and crash tests. Given after consideration of various factors, the panel looks for features that can keep the occupants safe under any collision. To clinch this award, cars must score a rating of “Superior” or “Advanced” for a majority of their features, with the rest getting a rating of “Good” or “Acceptable”. 


    Kia’s Top Class Safety Features
    So how did the 2020 Kia Soul earn this? 

    The 2020 Kia Soul comes fully equipped with extensive safety features designed to prevent collisions and injuries. The car comes with standard offerings, like front impact airbags, side-impact airbags, overhead airbags, knee impact airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners, anti-lock braking system, anti-intrusion & anti-theft alarm system, and stability control.

    Besides this, Kia also built the car with advanced safety features that include:

    • Traction control, brake assist, and tire pressure monitoring systems
    • Rear door child safety locks and child seat anchors
    • Blind-spot monitoring
    • Pedestrian detection
    • Lane assist, lane departure warning
    • Accident avoidance and forward collision avoidance assist
    • Pre-collision safety system & post-collision safety system. 


    Kia designed the 2020 Soul’s preventing high-impact-induced-injuries. They fabricate the frame using Iso-Structure™ technology. This technology uses super-high-strength steel to provide structural integrity and rigidity to Kia’s case. As a result, it reduces the strength of the impact and prevents extensive damage to the car and its occupants.

    To gain the TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation, Kia earned a “Superior” rating in its front crash prevention test, which is courtesy of the forward collision avoidance assist. It also gained a “Good” rating for its premium headlights. In addition, the vehicle offers its safety features in two packages, both of which received the “Advanced” rating.
