About the Top Safety Pick Plus Designation

To qualify for the TSP+ designation, a vehicle must earn “Good” ratings in series of six crashworthiness tests: driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint.

The IIHS requires that all TSP+ awardees achieve a rating of “Advanced” or “Superior” for front-crash prevention technology, along with a rating of “Good” for headlights.

2020 Kia Soul IIHS Crash Test Results

The TSP+ designation was awarded to 2020 Soul models that are equipped with the optional Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist system and LED headlights.

The model satisfied all TSP+ requirements set forth by the IIHS, also going beyond with a “Superior” rating for its forward collision prevention technology. The optional Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist system succeeded in helping avoid collisions in the IIHS’s 12-mph and 25-mph tests.

The Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist system comes standard on S, GT-Line and EX trim levels. On the GT-Line Turbo, drivers get upgraded to Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist with Pedestrian Detection. LED headlights come standard on GT-Line Turbo models but are also available on EX models.

The all-new Soul’s TSP+ rating tops the TSP rating earned by the previous-generation Soul, thanks mostly to an improved passenger-side small overlap crash test result. With its success, the 2020 Soul becomes the 11th Kia model to be honored with a 2019 TSP or TSP+ designation.
