Top Kia Safety Features

Kia has been a leader in advanced technology since they first started producing vehicles and safety features are no exception. Recent safety improvements have made Kia vehicles some of the safest cars on the road today so we decided to let you know what we think the current top Kia safety features are.
Dual Front Advanced Airbags and Seat Mounted Side Airbags
The staple of safety in a modern vehicle is the airbag. Whether you are in a 2016 Kia Sedona or a 2016 Kia Rio, Kias advanced airbag system will keep you and your passengers as safe as possible. This advanced airbag system is a huge reason why many Kia vehicles have earned top IIHS Top Safety Pick awards.
Surround View Monitor
Backup cameras have become increasingly popular on modern vehicles but Kia takes it a step further with their surround view monitoring system. Cameras positioned around the vehicle provide a 360 degree view of your Kia Surround View Monitorsurroundings to increase awareness and make parking your vehicle a breeze. With a new Kia equipped with this advanced safety feature you’ll have peace of mind when parking your vehicle or backing out of your driveway.
Lane Departure Warning System
The same advanced camera technology used in Kia’s surround view monitor system allow the car to literally “see” lane markers and alert you if you’re drifting too close to the edge. Kia understands that as much as we try to pay attention when we’re driving, distractions do occur so the audible and visual alert is there to let you know if you’re drifting out of your lane so you can correct it.
Advanced Smart Cruise Control
Technology is an amazing thing and the Kia advanced cruise control system is awesome! Don’t you hate it when you set your cruise control and Kia Smart Cruise Controlcome across someone in your lane that’s going slower than you? You have to slow down and go around or wait for them to move over, accelerate again, etc… The new Kia advanced cruise control system does it for you! The vehicle detects the speed of the car in front of you and automatically slows you down to match it. When the vehicle moves, accelerates or is no longer in front of you the advanced system automatically readjusts your speed.
Autonomous Emergency Braking
With all of these amazing Kia safety features we decided to save the best for last. The all new autonomous emergency braking system that is available on the redesigned 2016 Kia Optima. Not only will this safety feature warn you when you might be about to get in an accident, but will actually apply the brakes as well! This incredible safety feature detects how quickly you are approaching the vehicle ahead of you and if it senses you are not applying the brakes quick enough it will do it for you!
