Kia tops BMW in crash test!
Acording to Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) of the U.S., Kia proves you don’t have to buy an expensive car to get a good protection on the road.
Kia Amanti was one of the lowest priced sedans in the group, with a starting price of around $25,500, but offered better protection comparing to luxury cars such as BMW 5-series and Mercedes E-class.
It was announced that the 2007 Kia Amanti (known also as Opirus) received a “Good” rating from IIHS of the U.S. in a side impact crash test for large luxury cars.
A “Good” is the highest possible rating given by IIHS and the results show a range of performance in how well large cars are designed to protect people in serious side impact crashes, according to the institute.
“It comes as no surprise to learn how well Amanti did when compared to higher priced vehicles in this test,” said Len Hunt, executive vice president and COO of Kia Motors America. “We are pleased that the IIHS test of the 2007 Amanti validates Kia’s philosophy of providing high-value and safe vehicles for our customers.”
