Kia Leads With Most TPS Ratings
Kia leads all other brands with 12 vehicles given Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick Plus ratings from Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
Kia received recognition for having more Top Safety Pick (TSP) and Top Safety Pick Plus (TSP+) ratings than any other brand after it was awarded the TSP to the new 2020 Kia Telluride. The vehicle further received TSP “Good” ratings in all six IIH crashworthiness tests, with an “Acceptable” rating for headlights.
