Kia Safety System Spotlight



The safety of you and your passengers is your number one priority. That’s why Kia places such an emphasis on research and sound safety measures in every new Kia car.

Kia Safety Systems

Ultra-High Tensile Steel Body Structure

Nearly 30% of every Kia model’s frame is made from ultra-high tensile steel. This material is not only lightweight, providing you with higher fuel efficiency, but it is also extremely rigid. The strength and rigidity of this steel prevents the frame from crumpling in the event of a collision, allowing you to travel with peace of mind knowing that you and your passengers are safe. 

Kia Drive Wise

Kia cars also come with a variety of driver-assistance technologies to help you monitor and respond to potential hazards around you. These features include both predictive and reactive technologies to ensure you have every possible opportunity to respond to a collision before it happens, and if necessary, engage avoidance measures to avoid or lessen impact. 


Some of these available Kia Drive Wise features include:

  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Forward Collision Warning System
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking

Seat Belt Pre-tensioner and Airbags

When a possible collision is detected, the seat belt pre-tensioner will engage to hold passengers firmly in their seats and control their impact with the inflated airbags. The available airbags in new Kia models include a driver/passenger airbag, curtain airbag, front/rear side airbag, and driver knee airbag. If a collision is unavoidable, these airbags will inflate instantly upon impact to provide 360 degrees of protection to minimize injury for every passenger in the car.
