2020 Kia Soul Earns Top Safety Pick Plus from IIHS
The completely redesigned 2020 Kia Soul has earned Top Safety Pick Plus (TSP+) status from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The TSP+ designation was awarded to 2020 Soul models equipped with optional Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist systems and LED headlights.
To qualify for a 2019 TSP+ rating, 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 Soul earned “Good” ratings for all six crashworthiness tests, and a “Superior” rating for the optional front crash prevention systems, which helped it avoid collisions in the IIHS’s 12-mph and 25-mph track tests. The “Good” rating for the headlights applies to LED projector headlights only.
For 2020, the Soul continues to transcend unmatched style, peppy performance, thrilling technology, and urban practicality. With a versatile lineup that includes the LX, S, X-line, GT-Line, EX, GT Turbo, and Soul EV, there’s truly a Soul for everyone. Sales of the new, resigned Kia Soul have shown that the funky hatchback is hitting all the right marks for our Tulsa-area shoppers.
The Soul’s invigorating technology, driving refinement, and unmatched style, are key factors that have drawn consumers to Kia’s urban car, and this latest safety award is yet another reason the Soul should be considered a top contender in the compact car segment.
