The foundation of your Kia's active safety system, the Anti-Lock 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.

Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)

Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) is a safety feature that adds steering direction control capability. It intervenes when appropriate to help the driver regain control of the vehicle.

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.

Traction Control System (TCS)

The advanced Traction Control System (TCS) can sense wheel spin during acceleration. Using a combination of engine power and brake force, power is transferred to the wheels that have the most traction offering increased control and traction.

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.

Brake Assist System (BAS)

The Brake Assist System (BAS) adds an additional level of enhanced safety by detecting emergency braking situations and applying additional braking force. BAS instantly assesses a number of variables, including brake pedal pressure and speed the brake pedal was depressed, and responds with full braking force if necessary.

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.

High Line Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

The High Line 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. If tire pressure fall below a specified range, a warning indicator appears in the instrument cluster to identify the affected wheel.

*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.

Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH)

Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) is a universal child-seat attachment system that allows for quick, easy, and secure installation and removal of LATCH-equipped child seats.

Rear Child-Safety Door Locks

The rear child-safety door locks offer peace of mind by enabling parents to disengage the interior door opening mechanism ensuring children can't open the rear doors while the vehicle is in motion.

Internal Emergency Trunk Release

The internal emergency trunk release offers an addition level of safety by enabling the trunk to be opened from the inside.
