Currently, there are no safety scores for the 2019 Kia Soul from the IIHS. However, the 2018 Kia Soul passed IIHS crash tests with flying colors and was named a Top Safety Pick+. The expectation is that the 2019 Kia Soul will meet or beat the ratings of the 2018 model. Here is an in-depth look at the 2018 Kia Soul crossover’s IIHS crash test ratings:

Small Overlap Front

  • Driver-Side: Good

Moderate Overlap Front

  • Side: Good
  • Roof Strength: Good
  • Head Restraints & Seats: Good

Crash Avoidance & Mitigation

  • Front Crash Prevention: Superior (with optional equipment)

With the exception of the “Advanced” or “Superior” ratings in Crash Avoidance & Mitigation, “Good” ratings are the top rating a car can receive from the IIHS.
