Kia Borrego Receives TOP Safety Rating In Crash Tests


How safe is the new Kia Borrego and what safety features does it have?

The all-new Kia large SUV, called Borrego, has achieved a five-star crash safety rating, the highest rating possible, for all seating positions in the latest frontal and side impact crash tests conducted by the NHTSA.

This is the first time Borrego has been tested by the government agency.

The seven-passenger Borrego is the latest entry in the midsize SUV segment and offers the same high level of standard safety equipment that has become synonymous with the Kia brand as well as additional features exclusive to the midsize SUV.


Standard Kia Borrego safety features include: advanced airbags, front seat mounted side airbags, full-length side-curtain airbags for all three rows and driver’s knee airbag (V8 models only); four-wheel disc brakes with an antilock brake system (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), and traction control system (TCS); tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS); electronic brake distribution (EBD); and a brake assist system (BAS).

Borrego is Kia’s newest vehicle and it is the best example of the carmaker’s commitment and will to providing the most up-to-date safety features in their vehicles.

“Borrego joins 4 other Kia vehicles models in US, the Optima sedan, Sportage compact SUV, Sorento midsize crossover and Sedona minivan, in garnering a 5-star crash safety rating in US. That itself further positions Kia as a serious up-and-coming contender in today’s highly competitive automotive market” said Byung Mo Ahn, president and CEO of Kia Motors America (KMA).

    well, thats great news. I visited the NHTSA site and found that it got 5 stars for driver and front passenger in head-on and side crash and 5 stars for Rear Passenger side crash. It got a good 4 stars for rollover rating for both 2WD and 4WD with 17% rollover chance rating for 4WD.

    Yeah, this great news. Next I hope it scores very well with the IIHS. That is a much more sought after title to get a top safety pick from them.

  3. Greg says:

    I REALLY, REALLY hope that IIHS gives it a top safety pick!

  4. K-Sport (Boris) says:

    its quiet hard to get a ‘good’ in IIHS. but I really hope the borrego does.
