Kia Sorento-4-Wheel Antilock Brakes (ABS)

4-Wheel Antilock Brakes (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.

Kia Sorento-Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

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.


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