2011 Kia Forte Safety

8.0
Safety
Safety ratings for the Kia Forte have been very good but not quite perfect. The IIHS has given the Kia Forte top 'good' ratings in frontal offset, side impact, and rood strength, along with rear impact; the Forte also earned the IIHS Top Safety Pick designation. The federal government hasn't yet tested the 2011 Kia Forte under its new 2011 testing and rating system, however the 2010 Forte earned five stars for frontal impact but four- and five-star ratings for side impact—not the best, but respectable versus other vehicles in its class.

All safety features are standard across the entire 2011 Kia Forte line; that includes dual seat-mounted side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, front active headrests, anti-lock brakes with brake assist, and electronic stability control.
