What Safety Features Does the 2022 Kia EV6 Have?
The 2022 Kia EV6 comes with 4 premium, standard safety features present across all trims. Primarily driving assist tools, these features are designed to offer additional support to the driver when faced with common or unexpected hazards. In addition to these, select trims of the 2022 Kia EV6 also offer navigation-based smart cruise control, automatic high-beams, and blind-spot alert systems for extra peace of mind.
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)
The Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist detects and alerts the driver to potential frontal collisions in order to improve your reaction time or apply controlled braking if necessary. This feature is also coupled with a Junction Turning function for detecting oncoming vehicles when executing a left turn.
Lane Keep Assist
Every driver has experienced road fatigue and distractions. If you find yourself drifting out of your lane for whatever reason, the EV6’s Lane Keep Assist feature will alert you with visual and/or audio cues and gently correct your trajectory if you happen to drift without signaling. This function disengages instantly once you regain control of the wheel.
Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist
The Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist feature comes standard across the GT line but is available for all EV6 trims. This system will alert you to any traffic approaching from the side-rear of your vehicle while visual and audio alerts will warn you of any potential collisions. This feature is perfect for highway maneuvering and lane changes and will apply the brakes to avoid a collision if necessary.
Surround View Monitor
Finally, the 2022 Kia EV6 comes equipped with a Surround View Monitor. Four cameras form a 360-degree bird’s eye view of your vehicle and immediate surroundings. This perspective easily facilitates challenging parking maneuvers and will alert you to any potential obstructions or other proximity hazards.
It’s clear that the 2022 Kia EV6 is a very safe family vehicle. These 4 safety features are wonderful attributes that are sure to bolster your driving confidence and precision in order to prevent and control the unavoidable hazards of the road.
