But when you get such performance you also need great safety features to make sure you are safe. Kia has you covered here. Loaded with the latest safety technology the 2021 Kia K5 is a safe ride on all fronts. 

Standard Safety Features 

Automatic Emergency Braking 

When nearing a collision the car will automatically apply brakes to prevent it.

Lane Keeping and Lane Following

The car will alert the driver when they are serving out of their lane and take active steps to correct this. 

Driver Attention Warning

This is especially useful for long drives as it warns you if you are fatigued or inattentive while driving.

Leading Vehicle Departure Alert

It alerts you when the vehicle in front has started moving. It also suggests the user maintain a safe distance. 

Forward Collision Warning

The sensor detects if someone or something is approaching from the front. It gently applies the brakes so that the drive has more time to react. It is especially useful on city roads as someone or something can come in front of you at any time. 

Electronic Stability Control

If your vehicle loses control or is pushed beyond its limits the car will reduce the output of the car’s engine so that you have more control.


There are various types of airbags available in the Kia K5. The front impact airbags protect the head during the crash while the side-impact ones protect your torso. The overhead airbags protect your head in case of a side collision or if the car rolls over. Knee bags have also been added to protect your legs from getting crushed.


These tighten the seat belt so that you are in the optimal position for maximum safety during a crash.
