SAFETY Our efforts to ensure your safety: crash test
Vehicle body structure made of ultra-high tensile steelThe body of a vehicle usually refers to the frame on the surface. It takes up about 30 percent of the vehicle's total weight and plays a pivotal role in the vehicle's crash safety and styling. A vehicle body made of ultra-high tensile steel via hot stamping method allows the car to be lighter while increasing its rigidity.
The result: better fuel efficiency and crash safety.
AirbagIn a Kia car, your safety is ensured as it has a full set of airbags for whoever you drive with and however you might be impacted, including driver/passenger seat airbags, driver knee airbag, curtain airbag and front/rear side airbag.
Seat Belt Pre-tensionerA seat belt pre-tensioner is a device that is used to hold a passenger firmly in their seat just before and at the start of a collision and then allow that passenger to come into contact with the inflated airbag in a controlled way.
Bumper Systems for PedestriansLower legform / lower stiffener Upon impact between a pedestrian and a car, the lower legform or lower stiffener can minimize the bending of a pedestrian’s knee and make a pedestrian fall onto the car to reduce the possibility for a pedestrian to go under the car and end up in a more critical state.
Technologies to Avoid ImpactThe focus of safety has been on how much the occupants on board or pedestrians can be protected. Now a new question is emerging regarding car safety: how well can impact be avoided1.
1Safety technologies are only supplemental systems and they do not replace the need for the driver to operate the vehicle safely and exercise care and attention. For more information about Kia's safety technology, please refer to your relevant Kia vehicle's owner's manual.
Lane Departure Warning SystemA camera mounted on the windshield of your car senses your lane ahead and, if you depart from your lane because of drowsy driving or recklessness, warns you to take control of the car again.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System(TPMS)TPMS monitors the air pressure inside the tires of your car and alerts you if there is any under-inflated one, indicating its position.
Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)With this system, your car keeps monitoring the road conditions and protects your safety by automatically controlling the steering wheel and the brake when the road is bumpy.
Emergency Stop Signal(ESS)With this system, abrupt braking while you drive triggers fast blinking of a brake lamp to alert cars behind you on any danger.
- Lane Departure Warning System
- A camera mounted on the windshield of your car senses your lane ahead and, if you depart from your lane because of drowsy driving or recklessness, warns you to take control of the car again.
- Forward Collision Warning
- With this system, a camera monitors the distance between your car and the one running ahead of you and alerts you when it senses the distance becoming excessively short.
- Tyre Pressure Monitoring System
- A tire pressure monitoring system is an active protection system that monitors the air pressure inside the tires of your car and alerts you if there are any tyres that are under-inflated.
