Learn More about Kia's Wide Range of Driver and Passenger Safety Features

Once you choose a new Kia model from the latest 2017 lineup, you are putting your trust in technologies and innovations designed to ensure your safety. Whether its your first car or the family transport of choice, the security of you and your passengers is essential to both the brand and our team at Gervais Kia. With a plethora of different features at work to make navigating the Lowell area simpler, it can be difficult to keep up with all of them. Fortunately, we've compiled the top enhancements that make Kia vehicles some of the safest on the road.

Dual Front Advanced Airbags and Seat Mounted Side Airbags:

While they are a classic, tried and true method of staying as safe as possible in the event of an accident or impact, choosing a Kia model comes with the benefit of a truly modern airbag system. Featuring dual front airbags, front-set-mounted side airbags, and side-curtain airbags for both front- and second-row seating positions, this advanced sensor system manages your security with IIHS Top Safety Pick award-winning performance.

Surround View Monitor:

More and more vehicles have begun to offer rearview cameras as an available package to add to your vehicle, but with a 2016 or 2017 Kia model you can take advantage of the Surround View Monitor as a standard feature. By providing a 360 degree view of your vehicle's immediate surroundings, navigating parking lots and tight spaces will suddenly become a stress of the past.

Lane Departure Warning System

One of the fundamental driver assist technologies that make driving a smoother experience is the Lane Departure Warning System. With the capability to monitor your position in the present lane, as well as the vehicles around you, your Kia model can issue warnings and audible alerts in the moments that you lose focus.

Advanced Smart Cruise Control

Cruise control has long been a feature that turns road trips from dreadful to enjoyable, and Kia's Advanced Smart Cruise Control is an evolution of what drivers have come to expect from it. Like the other technologies in Kia's driver-friendly suite, this enhanced cruise control monitors your surroundings and alters your speed to match the vehicle in front of you. Unexpected traffic doesn't have to result in a slamming on your brakes when your car or crossover can gently slow down for you, before speeding back up once the traffic jam clears.

Autonomous Emergency Braking

With all of these amazing Kia safety features we decided to save the best for last. The all new autonomous emergency braking system that is available on the redesigned 2016 Kia Optima and 2017 Niro. Not only will this safety feature warn you when you might be about to get in an accident, but will actually apply the brakes as well! This incredible safety feature detects how quickly you are approaching the vehicle ahead of you and if it senses you are not applying the brakes quick enough it will do it for you!

Last, but far from least, is Kia's Autonomous Emergency Braking. When an unexpected incident occurs that leaves you at risk for an accident or collision, your vehicle will issue a warning and automatically apply the brakes in order to guarantee your safety. This two-step system allows for you to focus on having full control of the vehicle, while also having the comfort of knowing that it is actively looking out for you.
