Kia Sorento (MY-2015)

The new Kia Sorento which goes on sale early 2015 has scored a full five-star result in the latest Euro NCAP safety tests for 2014.

This is broken down into 90% for adult occupancy, 83% child occupancy, 67% pedestrian, and 71% for safety assist.

This compares to the comparable Nissan X-Trail, which was also tested in 2014 – scoring five-stars which was broken down as 86% for adult occupancy, 83% child occupancy, 75% pedestrian, and 75% for safety assist.

Standard safety equipment includes Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) with option such as ASCC (Adaptive Smart Cruise Control); LDWS (Lane Departure Warning System), BSD (Blind-Spot Detection), RCTA (Rear Cross-Traffic Alert)  and SLIF (Speed Limit Information Function), which displays the speed limit in the driver's instrument cluster based on cameras detecting roadside signs, which seems very handy but prone to error, so you cannot rely solely on this data.
