The new Kia Sorento, recently awarded the “Golden Steering Wheel 2020” in the “Large SUVs” class, is also one of the outstanding models in its segment when it comes to safety. In the official European safety test Euro NCAP it now received the top rating of "5 stars". The Kia flagship achieved high scores in the individual test categories: 82 percent for occupant protection for adults, 85 percent for occupant protection for children, 63 percent for pedestrian protection and 87 percent for driver support through safety systems. The test result applies to all three drive variants including the Sorento Plug-in Hybrid, which will be launched in the first quarter of 2021 and can already be ordered now. The fourth generation of the Kia SUV has been on the market as a hybrid gasoline and diesel engine since October. The stability of the passenger cell, which also effectively protects all critical areas of the body of up to seven occupants, was rated particularly positively. The restraint systems and head restraints also proved their efficiency in the rear impact test by providing effective protection against head and neck injuries. The completely redesigned body of the Sorento consists largely of ultra-high-strength steel. Their torsional stiffness is 12.5 percent higher than that of the competitor that is perceived as the “safety leader” in this segment. The seven airbags fitted as standard include a new center airbag between the front seats, which is intended to prevent the driver and front passenger from hitting their heads in a collision
