2018 Kia Niro Shows Hyundai Ioniq How It Is Done

By  | 

The 2018 Kia Niro was brought in for tested by IIHS and it passed with flying colors which was a huge surprise since it manages to beat models like the Hyundai Ioniq.

After testing, the Kia Niro was given a Top Safety Pick + award by IIHS, the highest safety rating a vehicle can receive from IIHS. The vehicle managed to earn the rating by getting Good in every crash test including the small overlap test.

The optional features like HID headlights and forward collision prevention system were also given a Good rating but do bear in mind that these two features will not be included in the base model. The HID Headlights will only be offered from the EX model onwards while the forward collision prevention system will be offered from the LX trim onwards.

This is made even more impressive when you take into consideration that models like the Hyundai Ioniq were only given a Top Safety Pick award from IIHS.
