Euro NCAP Frontal Impact takes place at 64 Km/h, 40% of the width of the car striking a deformable barrier. In the Full Width test, 100% of the width of the car impacts a rigid barrier at 50 Km/h. In the side impact, a mobile deformable barrier impacts the driver's door at 50 km/h. In the pole test, the car tested is propelled sideways at 32 km/h into a rigid pole.

The passenger compartment of the Stinger remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Kia showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, the pelvis of the rear passenger dummy slipped beneath the lap portion of the seatbelt. Although dummy injury values were not excessive, the car was penalised and protection for this body area rated as poor. Protection of all critical body areas was good for the driver dummy in this test. In the side barrier impact, the Stinger scored maximum points with good protection of all critical parts of the body. Even in the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body areas was good. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash protection in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated marginal whiplash protection. The Stinger has a standard-fit autonomous emergency braking system. In tests of its functionality at the low speeds at which many whiplash injuries are caused, the system scored maximum points, with collisions avoided at all test speeds.

In the frontal offset test, protection of the chest and neck of the 10 year dummy was rated as marginal, the chest on the basis of rib
decelerations and the neck on the basis of tensile forces. Protection of the 6 year dummy was good or adequate. In the side barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was good, for both dummies. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the Stinger is designed could be properly installed and accommodated.

The Stinger has a deployable, 'active' bonnet. Sensors detect when a pedestrian has been struck and actuators lift the bonnet, providing greater clearance to hard structure in the engine compartment. Kia showed that the system worked for different statures of pedestrian and over a wide range of speeds. Accordingly, the car was tested with the bonnet in the raised position. Test results were almost entirely good or adequate, with some poor results recorded on the stiff windscreen pillars and at the base of the windscreen. The protection provided to pedestrians' legs was good or adequate and that provided to the pelvis area was predominantly good. The autonomous emergency braking system performed well in tests of its pedestrian detection, with collisions avoided or mitigated in almost all test scenarios.

The autonomous emergency braking system performed well in tests of its functionality at highway speeds, with collisions avoided or mitigated in all test scenarios. A speed assistance system recognises the local speed limit and provides this information to the driver who can then set the speed limiter appropriately. The lane assistance system warns the driver when the car is drifting out of lane and gently corrects the driving path away from the lane edge. A seatbelt reminder is standard for the front seats but no system is offered for the rear.

      Kia did really well with their airbag design here. Only deploying the airbags that could help, no extra airbags and no one unprotected. Driver side curtain in the front offset (because of the side movement), no curtains in the full frontal, driver curtain in the side impacts, and the passenger airbag didn't deploy in the full frontal because there was no passenger. Oh by the way in the full frontal the driver airbag says "602491346KLQFT0244". I wonder what that means? I've seen 6024913 on airbags before, I think it maybe some fabric type? I know the airbags have thinner fabric than they did in the past, that trend has been going on for as long as airbags have been around. The thinner fabric reduces abrasiveness and impact, making the airbag much less likely to hurt someone.

      The passenger airbag didnt deploy on some tests. But I guess thats because a dummy wasnt in the chair.
