Here at Folsom Lake Kia, we notice that drivers often get excited about the style, efficiency, and technology in the 2019 Kia models. However, these features would be meaningless if Kia vehicles weren’t safe. Indeed, Kia is at the forefront of safety technology, and anybody who visits Folsom Lake Kia for a test drive would be remiss if they didn’t test out these three essential Kia safety features.

Blind Spot View Monitor: Available in Kia sedans and SUVs like the brand new 2020 Kia Telluride, Blind Spot View Monitor is a safety feature that has a display in your dashboard cluster. It shows a live feed of your vehicle’s blind spots, making it so that your passengers no longer have to check your blind spot when you are trying to change lanes. Plus, if you try to change lanes while an object is detected in your blind spot, the Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist-Rear will help maintain your previous course.

Highway Driving Assist: If you live in a region where speed limit information is available, Highway Driving Assist will adjust the vehicle’s cruising speed to match the vehicle ahead, as well as to changing speed limits. Thanks to this feature, drivers will no longer have to worry about constantly setting and resetting the cruise control when driving on the freeway.

Safe Exit Assist: Also known as SEA, Safe Exit Assist, helps tell drivers if their doors are safe to open by sensing for potential hazards such as oncoming cars or bicycles. The systems will then alert you if it detects them.

Head on over to Folsom Lake Kia today to try out these three essential Kia safety features for yourself.
