With the 2019 Kia Sportage, drivers also get Kia's advanced suite of safety features and innovations known as Kia Drive Wise. These technologies aim to make driving safer by making drivers more aware and less fatigued while driving.
Like the Autonomous Emergency Braking, for instance. This feature will monitor the distance between you and the car in front of you and will even apply the brakes if it detects a collision is about to occur. And there's the Blind-Spot Detection system which will always warn drivers when another car is in their blind spot.
