When it comes to affordable, fuel-efficient vehicles, Car Dealers Asheville NC points out that Kia’s lineup has very attractive options. And while the Kia Forte and Kia Soul have been recognized for their value, Forbes magazine has recently recognized them for safety as well. So what makes these vehicles so safe? For starters, both have won the highest crash test ratings possible from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Additionally, they come with a long list of standard safety equipment.
The publication based its choices on data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which also just happened to honor the Forte and Soul as Top Safety Picks. This recognition is only given to vehicles that earn the highest possible ratings in IIHS front, side, rear and rollover crash testing, as well as offer electronic stability control—a potentially life-saving technology that is standard on the Forte and Soul.
