  • 2022 Kia Sportage - Crash & Safety Tests

    The fifth generation of the Kia Sportage is being offered for the first time in a version specially designed for Europe and with an almost completely electrified range of drives including plug-in, full and mild hybrids. What hasn't changed is the outstanding level of safety: the brand's best-selling SUV has now received the top rating of "5 stars" in the Euro NCAP - just like the third and fourth model generations (test years 2010 and 2015).The official European safety test, the requirements of which have continuously increased in recent years, is divided into four test categories. With 87 percent, the new Sportage achieved an outstanding value for occupant protection for adults. The testers emphasized the stability of the passenger cell in offset frontal collisions as well as the very good protection of the knees and thighs of the driver and front passenger, regardless of their size and seating position. The occupant protection for children is also at a top level (86 percent). Impacts on all critical body areas were minimized in both the dummies representing six-year-old children and those representing ten-year-olds. The safety assistants test, in which the new Sportage scored 72 percent, praised the performance of the Lane Keeping Assist and Intelligent Speed ​​Assist, which are also standard equipment, as is a multi-collision brake. Also standard is the front collision warning, whose cyclist detection was highlighted and which made a significant contribution to the good 66 percent result in the category "Protection of vulnerable road users".

    The all-electric Kia EV6 crossover has been awarded the highest safety rating following extensive testing by Euro NCAP, Europe’s leading independent safety testing organisation. The EV6 achieved the maximum five-star rating, further demonstrating the vehicle’s impressive safety credentials.The EV6 achieved 90% for adult occupant protection, 86% for child occupant protection, 64% for vulnerable road users including pedestrians, and 87% in the ‘safety assist’ category, which rates a vehicle based on the availability of a comprehensive suite of crash avoidance technologies. Euro NCAP praised the EV6’s passenger compartment for remaining stable in the frontal impact test and providing good protection of the knees and femur of all occupants. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. In the side barrier test and the more severe pole impact test, the EV6 scored maximum points, providing strong protection of all critical body areas of driver and passengers. The EV6 also scored well in the child occupant tests, with the vehicle protecting all critical body areas of dummies representing six- and ten-year old passengers. When testing the EV6’s safety assist technologies, Euro NCAP highlighted the performance of the vehicle’s Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) system, which responded well to other vehicles and avoided impacts in most test scenarios.
