The IIHS has the 2011 Kia Forte (sedan) as a top safety pick. I would assume that this would mean it doesn't apply to the 5-Door, right?

We're in the market to buy a new car (either Forte, Toyota Corolla, or Honda Civic) and I really like the 5-door version of the Forte, but safety is a big issue with us with a 4-year old and a newborn on the way.

Well the 5-door has all the same safety features including the side airbags etc. I'm not sure how hatches do in rear collisions because I've never seen one in a rear collision. Although the front end is identical to that of the sedan, and all of the goodies under the frame are identical (when matched to EX / SX models)

Only difference really is the body style :p
