Kia and General Motors (GM) declined to comment. As of this writing, the IIHS has performed headlight tests on mid-sized sedans, small SUVs, and pick-up trucks. All rights reserved. Morningstar: © 2019 Morningstar, Inc. All Rights Reserved. "Better aim at the factory can minimize glare.". In an effort to prevent, nighttime crashes, the IIHS has included headlight ratings for the first time ever in their evaluation of Top Safety Picks. Despite the glare problems and poor headlight ratings, the 2017 Sorento and 2017 Santa Fe Sport both were regarded as an IIHS Top Safety Pick because of their optional front crash prevention. The report adds that headlights are often overlooked in favor of "jazzier high-tech crash avoidance features.".
