    2018 Soul Technology


Kia Drive Wise.


New for 2018, available Kia Drive Wise driver-assistance technology means you’ll be at your best when you’re behind the wheel. That’s confidence. Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) works independently of the driver in critical situations, applying the brakes to help prevent or lessen the effects of a frontal collision. Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) provides a warning message and chime to alert you when rapidly approaching a slower moving, braking, or stopped vehicle. Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) is a camera-based system that monitors the position of your vehicle within its lane and helps warn you if it deviates, or is about to deviate, from the lane. Smart Cruise Control (SCC) is a radar-based technology that helps you adapt to changing conditions on the road and maintain a safe distance from vehicles in front by automatically slowing or accelerating your Soul when needed.


Blind Spot Detection.

Soul offers the very latest breakthroughs in automotive technology, ensuring you peace of mind while offering the latest in both convenience and entertainment as well.The available radar-based Blind Spot Detection (BSD) issues visual or auditory signals to help warn you of objects not in your field of view. An added feature of BSD, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) scans for passing cars, motorcycles, and/or other vehicles as you back up.

We’ve got you covered.

At Kia, we are committed to helping you stay safe on the road. Featuring smart passive safety systems, like a reinforced structure and advanced airbags, the Soul is designed to help deliver added protection. So you can drive with peace of mind. The advanced airbag system features dual front, front-seat-mounted side, and full-length side curtain airbags. High-tech sensors can detect the level of an impact and presence of a front passenger, helping to control airbag inflation. Designed for added protection, the Soul’s front and rear crumple zones help absorb and dissipate the energy from an impact. Side-impact steel beams reinforce the doors to help absorb impact energy and deflect side-impact force. Complete with over-the-lap and shoulder straps, each seat in the Soul includes 3-point seat belts to help secure you and your passengers during an impact. And front seat-belt pretensioners are made to tighten up the slack on seat belts to help keep occupants restrained during certain collisions. Securely and conveniently install a child seat with the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system. Plus, rear child-safety door locks allow you to turn off the interior door-opening mechanism, preventing passengers from opening the rear doors from the inside.
