11) Kia

Average Score: 9.43 (Details Below)

Kia’s lineup spans subcompact cars, SUVs, and minivans. Several of these models rate very highly in their segments, including the Kia Soul and Sorento. Kias often have lower prices than the competition (and lower average prices than many brands on this list), so achieving a high average safety score across the brand is notable. The brand also offers one of the best warranties in the business: a five-year/60,000-mile basic warranty and 10 years or 100,000 miles on powertrain components.

Advanced safety features aren’t standard in most Kia models, so you will have to upgrade the trim level or add some optional equipment to get things like adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist.
