Kia Forte Safety Features

There are very few automakers who focus on drivers’ and passengers’ on-road safety. When it comes to safety features, Kia is one automaker that steals the limelight. The team of engineers at Kia is highly dedicated to enhancing safety and security. They ensure that every vehicle they make protects the driver and passengers. This ability is clearly seen in the 2019 Kia Forte. Here are a few safety features incorporated in this Kia creation:

1. Airbags
The Kia Forte is equipped with front-impact, side-impact, and overhead airbags. The front-impact airbags are designed to protect the head of the driver and passengers during a frontal collision. The side-impact airbags are designed for the front seats to protect the torso of the occupants during a side collision. The overhead airbags protect their heads during a side crash or rollover.

2. Anti-lock braking system
One of the most attractive safety features of the 2019 Kia Forte is its anti-lock braking system (ABS). This system is capable of automatically sensing when one of your tires ceases to rotate under rigorous braking. Not to forget, it modulates the brake pressure to facilitate the rotation of the tire. This makes it capable of turning while braking.

3. Pretensioners
Another safety feature of the 2019 Kia Forte is its seatbelt pretensioners. These are capable of automatically tightening your seatbelts to position all occupants optimally during a collision. This reduces the chances of displacement of occupants within the cabin and consequent injuries during an accident.

4. Stability control
The 2019 Kia Forte provides superior stability control, which automatically senses when you exceed the handling limit of the vehicle and cuts down engine power and/or applies select brakes. As such, the driver is likely to get full control of the vehicle once behind the wheels.

5. Security system
The 2019 Kia Forte comes with an advanced security system, which ensures you are always safe on the road and that your drive is smooth. It is capable of anticipating and/or identifying any unnecessary vehicle intrusion. Besides these, the 2019 Kia Forte comes with daytime running lights, child safety locks, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and traction control.
