When inspecting the 2017 Kia Sportage picture of the test crash, you can clearly see the only thing crumbled in a front end collision is the front end. The crashworthiness pictures of the driver side panel showed plenty of room remaining between the driver and the wheel. Also, while examining the crashworthiness pictures as well as the uncrushed 2017 Kia Sportage pictures, you can see that the passengers all around have an extremely high chance of remaining as safe as the driver in a head on collision.

As mentioned before, this vehicle has an optional front crash prevention system that is recommended but not standard. Overall, the vehicle safety inspection after the test crash came back phenomenal, except for one minor problem that just didn’t make it as far as the rest. The headlights did not pass the vehicle safety inspection and therefore brought down the overall safety rating for 2017 Kia Sportage to hold an ace in hand.

The quality of head lights matter as well, especially when purchasing a new vehicle. A driver expects brightly lit roads and needs to feel as if they can rely on there car maker to give them that along side the rest of the perfectly scored parts. Although the company scored low on lights, it is a lot easier for a car owner to replace headlights than to continuously have to repair a failed engine part. Most buyer would prefer to deal with lower grade lights over a recalled part so the “poor” score may not effect the sales of the 2017 Kia Sportage.
