Reactive reflection.

Our passive safety systems are engineered to react to emergencies. The advanced airbags include high-tech sensors designed to manage airbag inflation after certain impacts. Special front and rear crumple zones help to preserve the structural integrity of the passenger compartment in certain collisions, and all doors are reinforced with steel beams to help absorb and deflect certain impact forces.


Active control.

Active safety technology functions automatically to help avoid problems before they arise. Systems like Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) help keep you safely on track.


Active braking system in the 2018 Kia Niro PHEV

Get intelligent stopping power with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) that helps provide consistent braking as weight load and distribution change, an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) to reduce skidding, and the Brake Assist System (BAS) that senses emergency braking situations and applies additional pressure as needed.
