Redefining Safety Inside and Out
Kia Mohave Features Active headrest
Side and curtain / front airbags
Depowered airbag system features dual front, side and curtain airbags which protect occupants in the front, middle and rear seats during side impact or vehicle rollover.
  • Auto light control system
    Visibility during a period of poor light can be a safety concern, so an automatic feature switches on Mohave’s side lights when it senses it is too dark.
  • Rear display room mirror
    The Mohave gives you a clear view with the rear display room mirror. It will display rear images on a 3.3 inch LCD panel located on the ECM mirror for maximum safety.
  • Front and rear parking sensors
    Ultrasonic sensors integrated into the front and rear bumpers warn of any obstacles when maneuvering into tight spaces to make parking both safe and hassle-free.

Conquering the ups and downs

Even on city streets it is essential that a capacious vehicle like the Mohave has the agility to
climb and descend hills and deal with sharp turns.

DBC (Downhill Brake Control)
DBC controls the braking mechanism on steep slopes or downhill conditions,
maintaining a safe constant speed of 8 km/h.
HAC (Hill-start Assist Control)
Using HAC, braking is sustained for two seconds during the brake-to-drive
transition to improve driving stability and prevent roll-back and slipping which
could endanger the vehicle and other road users.
Kia Mohave Features Driven to enhance your safety
Disc brake
Front and rear disc brakes form the 17 inch mass brake system,
alongside electronic BAS (Braking Assist) which amplifies physical braking power. This gives Mohave unsurpassed all-disc stopping capability of 100 km/h to stop in 42.6 meters in Kia tests.
Front suspension
The double wishbone front suspension focuses on the Mohave’s ability
to combat sharp inclines and retain turning stability, providing a firm and comfortable ride whether off-road on on-street.
Rear suspension
Multi-link suspension dampens the shock of rough road surfaces, keeps Mohave stable when turning and maximizes interior space for all-round occupant comfort.

Active safety in any environment

Rear electronic control air suspension
It enables the continuous maintenance of vehicle height regardless of the load and number of passengers. You can manually choose off-road driving mode to elevate the rear to avoid damage to the back end of the Mohave, and loading mode to lower the rear for convenience.

Take it to the extreme

Be sure about one thing. The Mohave can tame the most extreme elements of nature.

Take a load off your mind

As you would expect from a powerful four-wheel drive SUV, the Mohave has the flexibility to be a hobbyhorse or workhorse. From towing a quad bike or laden trailer at the rear to carrying a windsurfer board or packed roof box on the roof rails, Mohave makes heavy work look like a breeze.
