2014 Kia Forte: Poor IIHS Crash Test Result

August 14, 2013

The results are in for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety small-car "overlap" crash test, and the news is not good for Kia.

The 2014 Kia Forte was the worst performer in the test that replicates a crash in which the front corner of a vehicle strikes another vehicle or an object like a tree or a utility pole at 40 mph.

IIHS engineers said that the 2014 Forte test resulted in a "horrendous" crash with intrusion into the occupant compartment.

The 2013 Honda Civic was the only small car to get a top score in the new test.
