KIA Optima Earns ‘Good’ Rating in IIHS

2006.5 Kia Optima

The 2006.5 Kia Optima has gained positive feedbacks since its launch earlier this year. Recently the Optima received a “Good” rating from The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for its remarkable safety features and performance earning top marks in the frontal and rear impact tests.

IIHS imposes extremely high standards in evaluating automobile safety and includes determining factors such as injury measures, structural performance and restraints/dummy kinematics that evaluate a car’s overall frontal offset crashworthiness.

Here’s what you can expect from the all-new Optima as standard safety equipment in all of its vehicles:

• The all-new Optima features six standard air bags, including dual advanced front and front seat-mounted side air bags, and full-length side curtain air bags.
• Optima is one of the only vehicles in its class with standard full-length side curtain air bags, active front headrests and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).
• The 2006.5 Optima comes equipped with standard four-wheel disc brakes, with anti-lock brakes (ABS) available as an option.
