*Disclaimer
For maximum protection, always wear your seat belt.
4-Wheel Disc Brakes w/ Antilock Braking System (ABS)

The foundation of your Kia's active safety system, the Antilock Braking System (ABS) uses electronic sensors at each wheel hub to detect when wheels begin skid. If skidding under braking is detected, ABS modulates brake force to reduce skidding which in turn allows for reduced braking distances in addition to helping you maintain control of your vehicle.

*Disclaimer
For maximum protection, always wear your seat belt.  No system, no matter how advanced, can compensate for all driver error and/or driving conditions. Always drive responsibly.

Electronic Stability Control (ESC)

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) offers an enhanced level of vehicle control and peace of mind by offering improved directional stability helping you maintain the vehicle's intended direction of travel. ESC monitors and assists in the control of key vehicle functions by braking individual wheels and reducing engine power accordingly.

*Disclaimer
For maximum protection, always wear your seat belt.  No system, no matter how advanced, can compensate for all driver error and/or driving conditions. Always drive responsibly.

Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)

Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) adds steering direction control capability, intervening when appropriate to further stabilize the vehicle. It helps the driver regain control and return the vehicle to its intended path.

*Disclaimer
For maximum protection, always wear your seat belt.  No system, no matter how advanced, can compensate for all driver error and/or driving conditions. Always drive responsibly.

Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD)

The Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) system offers a measure of enhanced safety by electronically distributing appropriate amounts of braking pressure to each wheel through a network of sensors. The result is more controlled and precise handling while applying the brakes.

*Disclaimer
For maximum protection, always wear your seat belt.  No system, no matter how advanced, can compensate for all driver error and/or driving conditions. Always drive responsibly.

Hill Start Assist Control (HAC)

Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) offers an added measure of security when moving from a stop on a steep hill by preventing the vehicle from rolling backward. It functions by gently applying the brakes for two seconds while you move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator.

*Disclaimer
For maximum protection, always wear your seat belt.  No system, no matter how advanced, can compensate for all driver error and/or driving conditions. Always drive responsibly.

Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) offers the convenience and an added measure of preventative safety by constantly monitoring tire inflation pressures in all four tires. A warning light appears in the instrument cluster should any tire pressures drop below a specified range.

*Disclaimer
Even with the Tire-Pressure Monitoring System, always check your tire pressure on a regular basis with a digital tire gauge.

Side-Impact Door Beams

Your Kia offers an added measure of security with reinforced steel beams in every door. Specifically, these steel beams are designed to absorb impact energy and deflect side-impact force. Additionally, both A and B pillars are reinforced to help minimize impact forces.

*Disclaimer
For maximum protection, always wear your seat belt.  No system, no matter how advanced, can compensate for all driver error and/or driving conditions. Always drive responsibly.

Front and Rear Crumple Zones

The Front and Rear Crumple Zones are specially designed to absorb and dissipate impact energy, helping to preserve the passenger compartment.

*Disclaimer
For maximum protection, always wear your seat belt.  No system, no matter how advanced, can compensate for all driver error and/or driving conditions. Always drive responsibly.
