2012 Kia Sportage makes AAA’s ‘Top Cars For Teens’ List

The 2012 Kia Sportage compact CUV has been named one of the “Top Cars for Teens” by the Automobile Association of America (AAA). The Sportage was lauded for its dynamics, dependability, overall value, standard safety features and performance in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) crash safety tests, including a “no tip” evaluation during the tests.

“We are honored that AAA, one of the most respected authorities on travel and transportation, is recognizing the Kia Sportage as a top car for teenage drivers,” said Michael Sprague, executive vice president, marketing & communications, Kia Motors America (KMA) in a written press statement. “Knowing that the Sportage, our longest-running nameplate, has been chosen not only for its attractive design that appeals to all ages, but more importantly, for its safety features, reliability and value is evidence that consumers do not have to sacrifice curb appeal for dependability.”
