Default 2016 kia sorento receives nhtsa 5-star safety rating



Kia’s All-New Sorento CUV Earns NHTSA’s Highest Rating

Sorento’s extensive use of Advanced High Strength Steel makes Kia’s largest CUV stiffer and more durable than ever

The 2016 Sorento combines a strong base with additional design improvements to reduce NVH and provide a comfortable and quiet interior environment

IRVINE, Calif., April 24, 2015 – Kia Motors America’s (KMA) all-new 2016 Sorento CUV has received the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) 5-star overall safety rating. Built in the U.S. at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia (KMMG)*, Sorento is KMA’s best-selling CUV, having sold more than 100,000 units each of the past five years, and offers a long list of standard safety features and an expertly engineered body structure.

“NHTSA’s recent 5-star rating of the 2016 Sorento is a testament to Kia’s commitment to safety. The Sorento is all-new for 2016 and is Kia’s most capable CUV ever, yet still offers customers the tremendous value Kia is known for,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning. “Meant for customers with active lifestyles, Sorento is the perfect getaway vehicle for adventurers and families on the go, and they can feel confident knowing their vehicle scored a 5-star NHTSA rating – the highest rating achievable from NHTSA.”

The core of the all-new 2016 Sorento is its significantly enhanced platform. The structure increases torsional rigidity by 14 percent over the 2015 Sorento. The unit-body consists of 53-percent Advanced High Strength Steel, a 115 percent increase over the previous model. Liberal application of industrial strength adhesives, the use of dual-seal lip joints as well as large diameter and laser welding techniques combine to make the 2016 model the most robust and durable Sorento ever.

About the All-New 2016 Kia Sorento
The completely redesigned 2016 Sorento CUV raises the bar in a traditionally utilitarian segment with its refinement and first-class amenities. Available with an advanced All Wheel Drive (AWD) system and up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity, the new Sorento rides on a 3.1-inch lengthened wheelbase, which allows more room for passengers and cargo. Standard premium features and luxurious appointments span the line of five trim levels, and the Sorento is now offered with three engine choices, including a 2.4-liter inline-four cylinder, a new 240-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo-charged inline-four and a powerful 3.3-liter V6 producing 290 horsepower. The all-new Sorento offers a wide array of available driver-aid technology including Surround View Monitor2, Smart Cruise Control2, Blind Spot Detection2 and Lane Departure Warning.
