2017 KIA Optima available near Lexington

KIA is proud to announce that the 2017 KIA Optima has been named a Top Safety Pick Plus (TSP+) by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) when equipped with optional front crash prevention and LED headlights with High Beam Assist. What goes into earning the highest safety designation possible? Well, a lot of that’s for sure, but also a bunch of great minds and extremely hard workers. Earning top scores in each of five crashworthiness tests isn’t easy, but KIA did it.

The 2017 KIA Optima gives Lexington area drivers the ability to feel at ease behind the wheel. Not only did this sedan earn “good" crashworthiness ratings and a superior rating for the optional front-crash prevention system, but the Optima also received a "good" rating in IIHS headlamp testing.

"The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety sets some of the highest standards when it comes to evaluating vehicle safety, and the Top Safety Pick Plus designation is a significant achievement that substantiates Kia's ongoing effort to improve the quality and integrity of our world-class model line," said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning, KMA.

The tests include small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side impact, roof strength and head restraints. The vehicle must also receive an "advanced" or "superior" rating for front crash prevention and an "acceptable" or "good" rating in headlight testing.
