The 2019 Kia Stinger earns the top safety award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The sports sedan, based on the same platform as the Genesis G70, has been named a Top Safety Pick Plus (TSP+) when equipped with optional Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection and LED headlights. The Stinger's TSP+ rating increases the total number of Kia vehicles with 2019 Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick Plus ratings to 10.

TSP+ Award

To qualify for a 2019 TSP+ award, the Stinger earned "Good" ratings in six crashworthiness tests – driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint. It also met qualifications with a "Superior" rating for the optional front crash prevention system, which helped it avoid collisions in the IIHS's 12-mph and 25-mph track. Finally, it earned a qualifying “Good” headlight rating for its static LED projector headlights. (The Stinger's available curve-adaptive LED projectors rate acceptable, while its base headlights — halogen projectors — rate poor.)

Kia Drive Wise

The Stinger was the first Kia to introduce two new available technologies to the Kia Drive Wise suite of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems: Driver Attention Warning and Lane Keeping Assist. Driver Attention Warning is designed to help combat distracted or drowsy driving in certain conditions. Lane Keeping Assist is designed to detect and monitor the vehicle's intended lane and in certain situations, alert the driver with an audible warning along with providing steering input to help maintain the vehicle's position.
