This Sports Sedan is the single best choice for safety of its kind

The Kia Stinger GT-Line and GT2 are two sports sedans with Top Safety Pick+ ratings.

No shortage of sedans deserved a Top Safety Pick rating or others safety awards from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). However, it is rare for a sports sedan to boast performance and award-winning safety credentials. Enter the 2022 Kia Stinger GT-Line and GT2, the latest installments in the brand’s first dedicated sports sedan before the 2023 model year. The Stinger isn’t just fast, though; it is literally a safe alternative to other sports sedans on the market.

How safe is the Stinger among sports sedans?

The 2022 Kia Stinger boasts of other safe sports sedans. Kia’s four-door performance car received a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS. While it’s certainly not the only comfortable sedan with performance credentials, it’s the only budget-friendly sports sedan awarded IIHS. The agency classifies the Stinger as a “big car” rather than a “large luxury car” like many of the Stinger’s more upscale and expensive competitors.
