The all-new 2020 Kia Soul was recently named as a Top Safety Pick Plus (TSP+) vehicle by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The TSP+ designation was awarded to Soul models equipped with optional Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist systems and LED headlights. The Soul’s new accolade increases the total number of Kia vehicles with 2019 Top Safety Pick3 or Top Safety Pick Plus4 ratings to 11 when equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights.
In order to qualify for a 2019 TSP+ rating, a vehicle must earn “Good” ratings in six crashworthiness tests – driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint – as well as an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating for front crash prevention and a “Good” headlight rating. The Soul earned “Good” ratings for all six crashworthiness tests, and a “Superior” rating for the optional front crash prevention systems, which helped it avoid collisions in the IIHS’s 12-mph and 25-mph track tests. The “Good” rating for the headlights applies to LED projector headlights only.
