June 25, 2019—The redesigned 2020 Kia Soul, a small car, recently earned a Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety when equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights.

The redesigned Soul earns good ratings in all six IIHS crashworthiness evaluations, including the passenger-side small overlap front crash test, which is the newest IIHS crashworthiness evaluation. 

The 2020 Soul is available with two optional front crash prevention systems, one of which features pedestrian detection technology. Both systems earn superior ratings for front crash prevention. In track tests at 12 and 25 mph, they avoided collisions with a stationary target designed to simulate the back of a car.
