For KIA cars and SUVs, nothing matters more than safety. While KIA vehicles are known for their great technology and performance, the cornerstone of the KIA auto brand is safety. Over the years, KIA has developed some great technologies to keep drivers safe. Read below to learn about some of the most important and groundbreaking safety technologies in the KIA wheelhouse!
How do you make a vehicle both safer and more efficient? Use ultra-high tensile steel for the body! This structure makes KIA vehicles lighter, yet at the same time makes the vehicle’s structure more rigid, adding increased security. Because of this ultra-high tensile steel, KIA vehicles react better to crashes and maintain great fuel economies!
Few things are more frightening than heading into a motor accident. However, KIA has some great technologies to make the whole experience safer for everyone. Seat belt pre-tensioners hold passengers firmly in place during a potential accident. This technology prevents vehicle ejections and harmful trauma in the event of a collision.
KIA vehicles aren’t only safer for drivers, but people outside the vehicles as well. Lower legforms and stiffeners built into KIA’s family of cars and crossovers ensures that pedestrians fall onto the hood of the car rather than over or under the vehicle, thereby minimizing harm. With the pedestrian bumper system, drivers can rest assured that they are protecting those inside and outside their vehicle, adding an extra peace of mind behind the wheel!
Other great KIA safety technologies include Autonomous Emergency Braking, front-seat-mounted side airbags, Advanced Smart Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
