Key Safety Attributes of the 2022 Kia Forte

Apart from its top-notch performance aspects, there are certainly other ways the Kia Forte has your back. In this section, we'll discuss some of this model's many supportive safety features. Some of these are listed below:

  • Blind-Spot Collision Warning - This available feature uses advanced radar technology to let you know when another driver has entered one of your blind spot areas. Upon receiving this warning, you're able to make the necessary adjustments to avoid a collision.
  • Driver Attention Warning - If you're driving for an extended amount of time, the standard Driver Attention Warning can be a big help. It will bring to your attention when you seem drowsy or fatigued. As a result, you'll have the chance to find a good place to pull over and get some rest before pushing on.
  • Lane Keeping Assist - This is another feature that comes standard with the 2022 Kia Forte. If you're unintentionally veering into a neighboring lane, it applies gentle corrective steering to help bring you back to where you want to be.

Another 2022 Kia Forte safety feature worth mentioning is Hill Start Assist Control. This standard piece of safety equipment comes in handy when you're stopped partway up a steep hill. It prevents you from rolling the wrong way back down the hill when you take your foot off the brake pedal by continuing to apply the brakes long enough for you to reach the accelerator.

Because making sure you have the correct amount of air in your tires is vital to getting the most out of them for the sake of safety as well as performance, the Forte comes standard with the Tire-Pressure Monitoring System. It constantly monitors the inflation pressures for all four tires and provides a warning when one of them gets too low. As a result, you'll be able to take care of the situation as soon as possible.

Safe Exit Warning is an available feature in the Forte. It makes use of radar technology to let your passengers know when there's someone approaching to prevent them from getting out before it's safe to do so.

Finally, there's the Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning. This available feature makes use of radar sensors in the bumper to scan for anything that might be crossing into the path behind you whenever you're driving in reverse. This makes pulling in and out of parking spots and driveways a lot easier.
