*Disclaimer

For maximum protection, always wear your seat belt.

4-Wheel Disc Brakes w/ Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)

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 to skid. If skidding under braking is detected, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) modulates brake-force to reduce skidding, which then allows for reduced braking distances, in addition to helping you maintain control of your vehicle.

*Disclaimer

For maximum protection, always wear your seat belt. No system, no matter how advanced, can compensate for all driver error and/or driving conditions. Always drive safely.

Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)

Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) adds steering direction control capability, intervening when appropriate to further stabilize the vehicle. Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) then helps the driver regain control and return the vehicle to its intended path.

*Disclaimer

For maximum protection, always wear your seat belt. No system, no matter how advanced, can compensate for all driver error and/or driving conditions. Always drive safely.

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. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) monitors and assists in the control of key vehicle functions by braking individual wheels and reducing engine power accordingly.

*Disclaimer

For maximum protection, always wear your seat belt. No system, no matter how advanced, can compensate for all driver error and/or driving conditions. Always drive safely.

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.

*Disclaimer

For maximum protection, always wear your seat belt. No system, no matter how advanced, can compensate for all driver error and/or driving conditions. Always drive safely.

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.

*Disclaimer

For maximum protection, always wear your seat belt. No system, no matter how advanced, can compensate for all driver error and/or driving conditions. Always drive safely.

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. Brake Assist System (BAS) instantly assesses a number of variables, including brake pedal pressure and speed in which the brake pedal was depressed, then responds with full braking force if necessary.

*Disclaimer
