Top Safety Pick

…when it comes to safety, all Sorentos are created equal…
Motor Trend

…a commanding view of the road ahead.
Edmunds

Outward visibility is reasonably good despite a thick D-pillar.
Inside Line

Safety is a major initiative at Kia. All its new vehicles come with airbags and stability control, and they're engineered with five-star safety in mind.

That planning shows in some safety tests already. NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) hasn’t yet tested the Sorento, but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has–and it calls the Sorento a Top Safety Pick.

Kia does fit the 2011 Sorento with standard side and three-row curtain airbags, stability control, and anti-lock brakes. Visibility is fine, and Kia makes a rearview camera available on high-end versions.

Conclusion

The 2011 Kia Sorento is moving in the right direction with better safety performance.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
