Just like other new Kia vehicles, the 2017 Kia Sorento mid-size crossover SUV provides an impressive list of standard safety features to keep you and your precious cargo safe. In fact, Kia believes so strongly that safety shouldn't be optional, that every safety feature offered on the new Sorento comes as standard equipment! That means that not only are safety features like dual front advanced airbags, dual front seat-mounted side airbags, side curtain airbags, and a roller sensor standard, but so are safety amenities like Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD), and Brake Assist System (BAS). The long list of standard safety features also includes:
If you were impressed by the list of standard safety features on the 2017 Kia Sorento, then just wait until you hear about the advanced driver-assist and active safety systems on this stylish mid-size crossover SUV! For starters, a rear-view camera is standard on Sorento LX trim levels and above, while a Rear Parking Assist System is also available (and standard on Sorento EX models and higher). The Sorento's Rear Parking Assist System (RPAS) uses a sonar sensor system to detect obstacles behind your vehicle. If a hazard is detected, the system provides an audible warning. The available Surround View Monitor (SVM) provides a 'birds eye' view of your vehicles surroundings by utilizing live-images from four cameras, which is displayed next to the rear-view camera video on the large touchscreen display. Blind-Spot Detection (BSD) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) are also available and help further alert the driver to surrounding vehicles or obstacles while in motion. Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) and Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) are two of Kia's most advanced active safety systems, which can help prevent or lessen the effects of a frontal collision. The optional Advanced Smart Cruise Control (ASCC) adds both safety and convenience to your Sorento; it keeps your vehicle at a safe following distance behind the car in front of you, and also eliminates the need to constantly adjust your cruise control speed in freeway traffic. As you can see, Kia offers an incredible list of advanced safety features on the new Sorento, all at a highly affordable price!
