2014 Kia Cadenza: IIHS Crash Test
May 2, 2014
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded Top Safety Pick 2013 status to the 2014 Kia Cadenza after it received "Good" ratings in all four categories (moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint) but the award doesn't necessarily carry over to 2014.
As an early-introduction 2014 model, the Kia qualifies for the 2013 Top Safety Pick but may not meet the tougher criteria for 2014 Top Safety Pick.
For 2014, the IIHS adds the new small overlap front crash test which duplicates what would happen if the car crashed into a pole on the driver's side.
