Collision Avoidance Technology brings safety to the next level! In the 2020 Kia Sorento, you can enjoy Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance (BCA)[1] to help you detect vehicles in your blind spot, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)[2] to automatically apply the brakes if the system senses a possible impact, and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance (RCCA)[3] to warn you if it detects oncoming obstacles. Collision Avoidance technology protects you from all angles so you don’t have to worry about any unexpected accidents.

Advanced Structure

You can enjoy some added peace of mind knowing the 2020 Kia Sorento is made of superior steel. The Sorento is crafted with a 53% advanced high-strength steel structure for exceptional body rigidity[5]. This means in the event of an impact, the Sorento will maintain its shape so you don’t have to worry about the cabin being compromised. An additional benefit of buying a vehicle made of high strength steel is the minimal environmental impact. Steel is 100% recyclable and has scrap value. Therefore, the purchase of a 2020 Kia Sorento will keep you and then environment safe!

Child Safety + Airbags

LATCH is paired with advanced airbag system monitors to weigh out the severity of certain impacts to help manage airbag inflation[6]. Kia values the safety of your family. We are dedicated to providing you with the latest technology to ensure you can trust the vehicle you’re driving.

This system is reinforced with sonar that warns you if you’re too close to an obstruction, whether its behind or in front. The 2020 Kia Sorento quite literally has your back!
