Dual Front Advanced Airbags

When used with properly fitted seat belts, this advanced system helps detect the presence of a front seat passenger, monitors the severity of an impact and controls airbag inflation accordingly to help reduce injuries in certain collisions.

Side Curtain Airbags (on the first and second row)

Side Curtain Airbags, when used in tandem with properly fitted seat belts for both front and 2nd-row seating positions can reduce injuries. The airbag system is managed by a number of advanced sensors that detect when an accident is imminent or underway and deploy the necessary airbags.

Rollover Sensor

If the airbag sensors detect a rollover; the system can deploy the side airbags, side curtain airbags and seat-belt pretensioners.

3-Point Seat Belts for all Seating Positions

Front and rear 3-point seat belts are an integral part of an elaborate vehicle-wide safety system designed to help minimize the effects of an accident.

Front Seatbelt Pretensioners

In the event of certain collisions, seat-belt pretensioners are designed to tighten the seat-belts pulling the driver and occupants more snugly into their seats in anticipation of an impact to help to reduce the likelihood of injury.

Side-Impact Door Beams

Your 2016 Kia Sorento offers an added measure of security with reinforced steel beams in every door.

Front and Rear Crumple Zones

The front and rear crumple zones are specially designed to absorb and dissipate impact energy. This helps preserve the passenger compartment.

Rear Child-Safety Door Locks

The rear child-safety door locks offer peace of mind by enabling parents to disengage the interior door opening mechanism ensuring children can’t open the rear doors while the vehicle is in motion.
