2023 Kia Sportage SAFE SUV? – Crash and Safety Tests. The New Kia Sportage produced in South Korea and Slovakia, achieved 3 stars.
The Kia Sportage that now offers six airbags and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) as standard, achieved 82.31% in Adult Occupant, 71.57% in Child Occupant, 47.56 % in Pedestrian Protection and Vulnerable Road Users and 55.81% in Safety Assist. The car was tested in frontal impact, side impact, side pole impact, whiplash, pedestrian protection and ESC. The Sportage was assessed as a corporate twin of the Hyundai Tucson recently tested by Latin NCAP earlier in 2022. The manufacturer decided to standardize the 6 airbags and ESC, among other items, as a consequence of Latin NCAP test of the Tucson. The car has some optional safety equipment that in the case that the manufacturer makes them more available it might bring a better rating for the New Sportage.
The model was tested as voluntary decision of the manufacturer and the result is valid for all production plants. This result is valid as from VIN: KNAPU81CMN7093201 (start of production July 15th, 2022) for the vehicles produced in South Korea plant and for VIN: U5YPX81DBPL089757 (start of production September 16th, 2022) for vehicles produced in the Slovakia plant.
