2019 Kia Sorento Safety
When it comes to picking out the perfect vehicle for you and your family, safety is a key concern. Luckily, the new 2019 Kia Sorento takes your family’s safety just as seriously as you do. In fact, it earned a 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award – the highest honor – when equipped with front crash prevention and LED headlights.
Advanced Active Safety Systems
The Sorento actively works to help keep you and your passengers safe. It comes equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) as well as Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC) to elevate your peace of mind while on the go. These smart features actively monitor the road and adapt to changing driving conditions to optimize performance, stability, and control. The Kia Sorento also features an advanced airbag system, which uses sensors to monitor collision and inflate airbags accordingly (including dual front advanced airbags, dual front seat-mounted side airbags, and first and second row side curtain airbags).
State-of-the-Art Kia Drive Wise Technologies
Kia Drive Wise technologies stand at the forefront of automotive safety and innovation. These features seamlessly work with you to increase your confidence and peace of mind while on the go, helping you keep your family safe. The 2019 Sorento offers available Blind Spot Collision Warning, which actively monitors your blind spots and alerts you if there is a vehicle present, and Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning, which monitors either side of your vehicle while backing up and alerts you if there is a vehicle approaching from either direction. These features are especially useful while backing up from your driveway or from a parking space in a crowded parking lot.
The Kia Sorento also offers various other cutting-edge features to help keep you safe and aware of the positions of other vehicles on the road. Forward Collision Avoidance with Pedestrian Detection and Forward Collision Warning monitors the road ahead of you and alerts you if there is a vehicle or pedestrian present, automatically applying the brakes if needed to avoid or mitigate a collision. You’ll also appreciate Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, which is a smart system that automatically maintains a set speed and following distance while on the road. The system monitors the road ahead of you, slowing down when it detects a vehicle in your path and speeding up to your set speed when your path is once again clear.
To help keep you safely within your own lane, the Sorento offers Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keeping Assist. It also offers available Low Beam Assist and High Beam Assist to maximize visibility on the road, and Park Distance Warning Forward and Reverse to make parking a breeze. With these state-of-the-art safety technologies, you’ll feel the safest you’ve ever felt while out on the road.
