Safety
SYSTEMS
Dual Front Advanced Airbags
imageAltText

When used with properly fitted seat-belts, this advanced system helps detect the presence of a front-seat passenger, monitors the severity of an impact, and controls airbag inflation accordingly to help reduce injuries in certain collisions.

*Disclaimer

Sportage SX Turbo shown.

For maximum protection, always wear your seat-belt.

Dual Front Seat-Mounted Side Airbags
imageAltText

When used with seat-belts, the Dual Front Seat-Mounted Side Airbags offer an additional level of enhanced safety and can be effective at reducing injuries from certain collisions.

*Disclaimer

For maximum protection, always wear your seat-belt.

Full-Length Side Curtain Airbags
imageAltText

Side Curtain Airbags, when used in tandem with properly fitted seat-belts for both front and 2nd-row seating positions, can reduce injuries. The airbag system is managed by a number of advanced sensors that detect when an accident is imminent or underway and deploy the necessary airbags.

*Disclaimer

Sportage SX Turbo shown.

For maximum protection, always wear your seat-belt.

Rollover Sensor

If the airbag sensors detect an impending rollover, the system can deploy the side airbags, side curtain airbags, and seat-belt pretensioners.

*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 responsibly.

3-Point Seat-Belts for All Seating Positions

The first line of defense in safety are the seat-belts. Front and rear 3-point seat-belts are an integral part of an elaborate vehicle-wide safety system designed to help minimize the effects of an accident.

*Disclaimer

For maximum protection, always wear your seat-belt.

Front Seat-Belt Pretensioners

In the event of certain collisions, seat-belt pretensioners are designed to tighten the seat-belts pulling the driver and occupants more snugly into their seats in anticipation of an impact to help to reduce the likelihood of injury.

*Disclaimer

For maximum protection, always wear your seat-belt.

Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), 4-Wheel Disc Brakes

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.

*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 responsibly.

Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)
imageAltText

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

Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
imageAltText

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.

*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 responsibly.

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 responsibly.

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 the speed the brake pedal was depressed, and responds with full braking force if necessary.

*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 responsibly.

Hill Start Assist Control (HAC)
imageAltText

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.

Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

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. A warning light appears in the instrument cluster should any tire pressures drop below a specified range.

*Disclaimer

Even with the Tire-Pressure Monitoring System, always check your tire pressure on a regular basis with a digital tire gauge.
