KIA's Advanced Safety Features

We’ve all been there, right? It’s easy to get distracted while driving (especially when our favorite songs come on the radio) and that’s why many KIA vehicles offer a range of safety features to help act as your extra eyes for the road. Though this video showcases the KIA’s Emergency Braking feature, the brand offers much more than that. Some of the safety features offered on select models include:

Rear Cross Traffic Alert:

Using sonar sensors as you reverse, this system will give an audible warning when it detects an obstacle behind the vehicle.

Autonomous Emergency Braking:

This feature utilizes a camera, which is mounted on the windshield of the car. The camera senses the lane ahead and if you happen to depart from it, it warns you to take control of the car again (as featured in the video above).

Tire Pressure Monitoring:

This feature monitors the air pressure inside the tires of the car and will alert you if there is any under-inflating tire. The alert will also indicate exactly which tire needs more air.

Emergency Stop Signal:

When this system is in use, abrupt braking while driving triggers fast blinking of the brake lamp to alert the vehicles behind you of any danger.

Forward Collision Warning:

With this system, a camera monitors the distance between your car and the one in front of you. If the distance becomes excessively short, you will be alerted.

Blind Spot Detection:

This system sends both visual and auditory signals to help warn you of objects that are located in your blind spot.
