FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE ASSIST (FCA)
By warning and braking automatically, the FCA system assists you in avoiding or mitigating an accident. A radar on the car’s front bumper and a camera on the windscreen monitor for hazards on the horizon, such as pedestrians or other cars.
LANE KEEPING ASSIST (LKA)
The Lane Keeping Assist System detects lane markers on the road, and assists the driver’s steering to help keep the vehicle between lanes. When the system detects the vehicle straying from its lane, it alerts the driver with a visual and audible warning, while applying a slight counter steering torque, trying to prevent the vehicle from moving out of its lane.
LANE FOLLOWING ASSIST (LFA)
A camera in the Kia’s windshield monitors the vehicle’s position in the lane. If the vehicle crosses the road markings unintentionally without using the turning signal, the system provides an audible and visual warning. The system is also able to guide the Kia vehicle back into the centre of the lane.
DRIVER ATTENTION WARNING (DAW)
A driver protection feature which helps monitor driving patterns in order to detect reckless or fatigued driving and prevent potential accidents. … If the system detects inattentive driving patterns, an audible sound and message on the display panel will bring this to the driver’s attention.
SMART CRUISE CONTROL (SCC)
Smart Cruise Control is an intelligent form of cruise control that utilizes radars and cameras to detect any vehicles in front of you, and to then automatically keep your vehicle at an appropriate distance from that vehicle.
BLIND SPOT COLLISION WARNING (BCW)
Blind spot warning (BSW) systems use cameras, radar, and/or ultrasonic sensors alongside your vehicle to detect vehicles you can’t see that are next to or behind your car. If a vehicle is detected there, drivers get a visual warning, often in the outboard mirrors, or on the front pillars.
SMART PARKING ASSIST (SPA)
The Smart Parking Assist System helps drivers park their vehicle by using sensors to measure parallel parking spaces, control the steering wheel to semi-automatically park the car and provide instruction on the LCD display to help through parking.
REAR CROSS TRAFFIC COLLISION WARNING(RCCW)
Rear cross-traffic alert can help you when backing out from a parking space. When your vehicle is in reverse and your speed is less than 5 MPH, the system is designed to detect other automobiles approaching between 5 and 18 MPH from the right or left rear of the vehicle.
HIGH BEAM ASSIST (HBA)
The high beam assist is a system that automatically adjusts headlamp range (switches between high beam and low beam) according to the brightness of other vehicles and road conditions.
EPB + AUTO HOLD BRAKE
The Auto Hold maintains the vehicle in a standstill even though the brake pedal is not depressed after the driver brings the vehicle to a complete stop by depressing the brake pedal. 1.Depress the brake pedal and then press the Auto Hold button.
INTELLIGENT SPEED LIMIT WARNING (ISLW)
Intelligent speed adaptation (ISA), also known as alerting, and intelligent authority, is any system that ensures that vehicle speed does not exceed a safe or legally enforced speed. … The purpose of ISA is to assist the driver to maintain a safe speed.
TYRE PRESSURE MONITORY SYSTEM (TPMS)
TPMS monitors the air pressure inside the tires of your car and alerts you if there is any under-inflated one, indicating its position.
AROUND VIEW MONITOR (AVM)
At speeds below 20 km/h, the AVM combines four wide-angle images (taken from cameras on the front, rear and sides of the vehicle) to give you a bird’s eye view of the space around you. In the Optima Plug-in Hybrid the view is 270 degrees.
ELECTRONIC LIMITED SLIP DIFFERENTIAL
An electronic limited-slip differential is a device that calculates and redistributes power by shifting a different amount of torque among the wheels to avert the loss of traction. An electronic limited slip differential receives input from sensors that monitor things such as steering angle, wheel speed and acceleration. The differential’s sensors can quickly and efficiently determine if a vehicle is on the verge of spinning out of control.
ADAPTIVE SUSPENSION SYSTEM
An adaptive suspension system lets drivers switch between a softer ride and a firmer ride quickly. This is just one of the many benefits of using this type of suspension in your car. With an adaptive suspension, you can react quickly to changing road conditions. Traditional suspensions come with fixed dampers and set damping rates that don’t work on certain roads. The main benefit of an adaptive suspension is the additional control drivers receive. Adaptive suspensions offer much more variety, so you can drive on virtually any road in any condition.
