At Kia, we are committed to helping you stay safe on the road. Featuring smart passive safety systems, like a reinforced structure and advanced airbags, the Soul is designed to help deliver added protection. So you can drive with peace of mind.
The advanced airbag system features dual front, front-seat-mounted side, and full-length side curtain airbags. High-tech sensors can detect the level of an impact and presence of a front passenger, helping to control airbag inflation.
Designed for added protection, the Soul’s front and rear crumple zones help absorb and dissipate the energy from an impact. Side-impact steel beams reinforce the doors to help absorb impact energy and deflect side-impact force.
Complete with over-the-lap and shoulder straps, each seat in the Soul includes 3-point seat belts to help secure you and your passengers during an impact. And front seat-belt pretensioners are made to tighten up the slack on seat belts to help keep occupants restrained during certain collisions.
Securely and conveniently install a child seat with the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system. Plus, rear child-safety door locks allow you to turn off the interior door-opening mechanism, preventing passengers from opening the rear doors from the inside.
Smart active safety systems, such as Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC) and the Brake Assist System (BAS), work automatically by sensing and adapting to your driving conditions. It’s active, more precise control no matter the road.
A suite of active technologies designed to keep you in control. The Traction Control System (TCS) helps avoid wheel spin when you accelerate, while Electronic Stability Control (ESC) helps you stay on course with improved stability. Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) offers increased steering control when driving in harsh road conditions, and Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC) helps keep your vehicle in place as you move off an incline.
Experience advanced braking for more precise control. Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps deliver more consistent braking as weight load and distribution change. The Antilock Braking System (ABS) helps reduce skidding, and the Brake Assist System (BAS) senses emergency braking situations and increases braking when needed.
The Soul’s Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) continuously monitors the inflation pressure in all four tires and warns you when the pressure drops below a specified range.
