Safety features are a primary consideration for most car buyers. With that in mind, what does the 2022 Kia Sportage offer in terms of safety? This is important because motorists want to feel safe and a peace of mind during their commutes.
Let’s find out how this crossover SUV keeps its drivers and passengers safe.
Passive Safety System
First, let’s examine the SUV’s passive safety system. This includes technologies that activate without driver input. For the Kia Sportage, this includes a number of airbags, including dual-front advanced, dual-front seat-mounted, and full-length side-curtain airbags.
Active Safety System
The 2022 Kia Sportage includes the Kia Drive Wise and its suite of safety features. The system utilizes a combination of cameras and radars to alert the driver of nearby vehicles and other road hazards. Some of the safety technology includes rear cross-traffic collision warning, smart cruise control with stop and go, and forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
It should be noted that the 2022 Kia Sportage also includes the auto manufacturer’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. This helps improve torsional stiffness, overall handling, and helps drivers maintain a safe cruising speed and proper following distance. ADAS also utilizes radar technology to alert the driver if a vehicle enters your blind spot.
In addition, there is a 911 Assist feature. Simply connect your smartphone to the vehicle’s Bluetooth. Should a collision occur, and your phone has a signal, a 911 call will automatically be made with emergency responders immediately dispatched to your location.
