Kingston, Jamaica March 8, 2022 – Kia Corp. has earned TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) and TOP SAFETY PICK (TSP) awards by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), further highlighting the automaker as the industry leader in safety. Kia claimed eight TSP+ and TSP awards.

The IIHS judging process recognizes TSP winners that earn ‘Good’ ratings in six crashworthiness tests: driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, original side, roof strength, and head restraint. In addition, TSP winners earn ‘Advanced’ or ‘Superior’ ratings for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian front crash prevention tests. The vehicle must also have at least one available headlight system that earns a ‘Good’ or ‘Acceptable’ rating. For the TSP+ designation, the ‘Good’ or ‘Acceptable’ headlight system must be standard equipment.

Topping the charts were the Kia Sorento, Seltos, Carnival built after March 2021 (with specific headlights) and Sportage receiving TSP awards. The Kia Stinger also qualified as a TSP+ winner.

“The Sorento has been acclaimed to be the best in its class and the successive awards following the J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study demonstrates that.” Kevin Jackson, Senior Sales Manager at Kia Jamaica pointed “The Carnival, Sorento and Sportage are some of the latest revamped SUVs in the line-up equipped with advanced safety technology features such as Forward Collision Avoidance-Assistance (FCA), Blind Spot Assistance and Rear Occupant Alert Sensors to enhance the driving experience and amplify passenger safety. Kia’s unwavering commitment to delivering the highest standards in safety, design and engineering to its customers is reflected in its continued growth throughout the years.”

Locally, ATL Tiger Motors, a division of the ATL Automotive Group, distributes Kia Jamaica and this year marks the brand’s fourth anniversary.
