Kia Niro FIRST Vehicle Ever to be Awarded IIHS Top Safety Pick +
The 2018 Kia Niro (at least Touring Models) have made history by becoming the 1st Vehicle Ever to be given the IIHS "Top Safety Pick + Award"
I've recently purchased this configuration so I'm happy to discover it is such a safe vehicle. We test drove it in the country at night because our daughter lives in an area with huge deer populations and I can confirm that the HID headlights are pretty amazing.
This forum will NOT allow me to post links so just look up IIHS Top Safety Pick +. The most comprehensive article I've seen about this is by the New York Daily News.
