Kia Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Backing your vehicle up can be a challenge regardless of what size vehicle you have. There are bound to be blind spots in even the best-designed vehicle. If you are trying to navigate a tight driveway or road, your Kia vehicle’s rear cross-traffic alert system can help you out. While your sensors aren’t designed to pick up on moving obstacles that are directly behind you, your sensors that are part of rear cross-traffic alert will work with the rearview camera to provide you with a full picture all around your vehicle.

Putting your Kia into reverse will activate the rearview camera, parking sensors, and your rear cross-traffic alert system automatically. If anything is within your vehicle’s immediate surroundings, an icon is going to flash on your infotainment system screen. An arrow will then direct you to the point of your vehicle that is in immediate danger of a hazard. Some models will beep as well. Driver assistance technology is designed to help you stay safe on the road in a variety of different driving conditions. You always have the option to turn these functions off if they are something that you don’t want to utilize at a certain point in time. A simple push of a button is usually all it takes to turn them on or off. Years ago, you had to rely on your sight to catch obstacles around your vehicle. Features that include automatic headlights, a rearview camera, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind-spot monitoring all improve your overall safety.
