What Type of Safety Features Come With The 2019 Kia Soul?

2019 Kia SoulThe passive systems begin with the side-impact steel beams that reinforce the doors and the crumple zones in the front and rear for diverting crash energies away from passengers. The advanced airbags cover the side curtains, both front seats, and the sides of the front seats. To control inflation, sensors can detect the presence of a front passenger and the level of impact.

Helping to eliminate wheelspin as you step on the gas is the Traction Control System, which is part of the Electronic Stability Control that maximizes your handling. When the road gets harsh, Vehicle Stability Management keeps you steady. To prevent the crossover from rolling down a slope, Hill Start Assist Control holds you in place so you can move your foot from brake to accelerator.

More active protection stems from available Kia Drive Wise. Its Forward Collision Warning System tells you if you're about to hit a vehicle that is slowing or stopped. Automatic Emergency Braking can stop you to prevent frontal hits. So you stay within the highway lines, the Lane Departure Warning System informs you if you deviate. You can count on Smart Cruise Control to put you at a safe distance from traffic while keeping you at the speed you want.

Other active safety tech includes Blind Spot Detection for warning against vehicles in your blind zone and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert for informing you when a car crosses your rearward path as you back up.
