What is the best sedan with the highest safety rating?

Versatile, high tech with best-in-class safety features, the 2016 Kia Optima is not only Kia’s best-selling sedan but also is the best sedan with the highest safety rating award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). For the 2016 awards year, the IIHS has awarded the Optima a Top Safety Pick Plus (TSP+) Award which is the organization’s highest safety ranking. The Optima was even able to clinch the win with the heightened standards for safety implemented by the IIHS.

Setting the highest standards for vehicle safety the IIHS evaluates model’s in five crashworthiness tests in which vehicles must receive “Good” ratings in all five to be considered a TSP+. The 2016 Optima swept the board with such a score and even received a “Superior” rating for the newly added category for front crash prevention.
