Forward Collision Avoidance Assist

Forward Collision Avoidance Assist 1 (FCA) uses camera and radar data to a assess the road around you. By signaling a warning, and automatically applying maximum brake power, it helps you avoid collisions with cyclists, pedestrians, and other vehicles.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist is available on all Kia models but functionality will vary.

Forward Collision Warning

Lane Assistance

To keep you safe and alert when driving long distances, many of our Kia vehicles come with lane assistant features.

Lane Keeping Assist

Blind Spot Assistance

It's called a blind spot for a reason. So to assist you in high traffic situations, we offer a number of features that give you the added visibility, and therefore the confidence, to make that manoeuvre more safely.

Blind Spot Collision Warning

Beam Assistance

Driving at night can mean reduced visibility, so it's important we help all road users to see where they're going. Most of the Kia range comes with intelligent lighting that adapts to your environment - making it safer for you and others.

High Beam Assist

High Beam Assist

Automatically switches between high and low beam headlights by sensing streetlights and oncoming vehicles — ensuring the best possible visibility without dazzling other drivers.

(1) Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) is an assistance system and does not relieve the driver from their responsibility to safely operate the vehicle at any time. The driver still has to adapt their driving behaviour to their personal driving capabilities, to the legal requirements and to the overall road and traffic conditions. FCA is not designed to drive the vehicle autonomously. For further information, please refer to the owner’s manual.
