If you’re considering buying a Kia, you’ll be happy to know that Kia cars are indeed very safe and have been recognized as among the safest car brands on the road today. Below are just some of the ways Kia makes you feel safe and secure.

Safety Features You Can Find on Your New Kia

Ultra-high tensile steel

Kias are made from ultra-high tensile steel through a hot stamping method that allows for more rigidity throughout the body.

Full suite of airbags

Kias are packed with airbags in both the driver and passenger seats, driver knee, curtain, and side airbags in both the front and rear.

Seat belt pre-tensioner

A seat belt pre-tensioner secures a person in place at the start of a collision before then allowing them to come into contact with inflated airbags in a controlled manner.

Autonomous Emergency Braking

A sensor and camera are used to detect braking or careless driving by the car in front of your Kia. If either behavior is detected, the brakes will automatically be applied.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

This technology keeps tabs on the air pressure inside your Kia’s tires and alerts you if any of them reach a dangerous level.

Vehicle Stability Management  

Should you encounter any bumpy terrain in your Kia, the Vehicle Stability Management System will reinforce your steering wheel and brakes to maintain steadiness.

Lane Departure Warning System

A windshield-mounted camera detects the boundaries of your lane and issues an audible warning if you deviate from your lane due to drowsiness or distracted driving.

Forward Collision Warning System

This feature uses a camera to monitor the distance between your Kia and the vehicle in front of you and warns you if that distance becomes excessively short.
