This thread is to discuss Kia's latest available safety features. They are not yet on the Soul EV but are for other cars, hence they are expected to be on the MY2018. For the 2017 N iro Hybrid this option is only available on the highest trim. - see http://www.kia.co.uk/new-cars/range/mid ... wniro.aspx
The Safety Package adds a radar and a camera at the front, and two radars at the back. (in addition to the 8 ultrasonic sensors that are standard)
The safety features included are AEB, SCC, BSD, RCTA, LCA, LDWS, and LKAS. (see below for explanations of these).
Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
Smart Cruise Control (SCC)
Blind Spot Detection (BSD
The Hyundai I oniq EV has the same set of safety features. I have reviewed them here - http://myioniq.com/forum/viewtopic.php? ... 3&start=10
For the new Hyundai Genesis this package is called Smart Sense.
Similar threads to this are:
1/ Kia DriveWise: Intelligent safe technology This is for full autonomous driving. It is not expected until 2020.
2/ Automatic Parking Not yet available on any Kia model. The 2015 version of Automatic Parking called (APAS) which used 12 ultrasonic sensors has been replaced in testing by the Smart Parking Assist System (SPAS) which uses the cameras and radars available in the Advanced Driving Assistance pack (ADAP).
