When shopping for a new Kia car at Kearny Pearson Kia, there are a few things to consider before buying. For example, you’ll look at things like fuel economy, cargo space, and vehicle type. These are certainly important things to consider, but it’s just as important to consider the safety features in a vehicle.

If you don’t know what exactly you should like for in a new vehicle, our staff here at Kearny Pearson Kia has put together a list of some essential Kia car safety features to have. The most important areas to consider are vehicle stability/control, braking, and tires.

Tire-Pressure Monitoring System

The Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is a feature that continuously monitors the inflation pressure in all four tires of your Kia car and warns you when the pressure drops below a specified range. This feature tells you when it’s time to check the tires in your 2019 Kia Optima.

Electronic Brake-force Distribution

The Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) is designed to help drivers experience more precision and control when braking. It is intended to adapt to weight load and distribution in order to deliver more consistent braking in your Kia car. Ultimately, it is meant to minimize the chance of accidents when braking, especially when combined with the Brake Assist System (BAS) for emergency braking situations.

Vehicle Stability Management

When you have Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) your Kia car has additional steering direction control capability. This feature helps stabilize the vehicle and lets the driver regain control of the steering in order to return the vehicle to its intended path.
