    SAFETY

    Advanced safety comes standard

    Since its debut over a decade ago, the Sorento has been a model of Kia’s tireless commitment to safety. Now with the third-generation Sorento, the legacy continues on with trusted active and passive systems, including Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and a reinforced body of 58% advanced high-strength steel.

    Active handling.

    Experience enhanced control with the Sorento’s advanced active safety systems. From more precise handling with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) to additional brake support with Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC), the Sorento continuously tracks and adapts to your driving conditions. For peace of mind on any getaway.

      Control - Maintain control when it matters most. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) helps keep you on course, while the Traction Control System (TCS) helps avoid wheel spin. Cornering Brake Control (CBC) helps you stay on track while you turn.

      Braking - Advanced braking for improved efficiency: Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) adjusts braking, front to rear, depending on load. The Brake Assist System (BAS) senses emergency braking situations and boosts braking pressure when needed. Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC) helps keep your Sorento in place as you accelerate from a stop on an incline.

    From the inside out.

    Built to be smarter and highly alert, the 2016 Sorento features reliable passive systems to help protect you and your passengers. With an all-new body made of 53% advanced high-strength steel, as well as advanced airbags and seat-belt systems, the Sorento delivers protection when you need it most.

      Structure - Built with patented construction techniques, industrial-strength adhesives, and even more advanced high-strength steel for exceptional body rigidity.


      Airbags - The advanced airbag system features sensors that detect impact levels and the presence of a front passenger, helping to manage airbag inflation.


      Seat Belts - The front seats come with height-adjustable seat-belt anchors for a proper fit, as well as pretensioners that tighten the seat belts in certain collisions. Every seat has three-point seat belts for over-the-lap and shoulder straps, and the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system helps to securely install a child seat.
