2020 Kia Soul available safety features
The 2020 Kia Soul is all-new and it looks sharper than ever, but does it have the features to back it up? We are here to say that it definitely does, and you can tell just by looking at the array of safety features. It comes with everything that you would expect standard, but where things get really interesting is in the 2020 Kia Soul available safety features. See what we mean right here.
Does the 2020 Kia Soul have forward collision avoidance?
Nearly all models of the 2020 Kia Soul come with forward collision avoidance assist. It comes standard on the S, GT-Line, EX, and GT-Line Turbo trims. Actually, the GT-Line Turbo trim adds pedestrian detection to that package. Along with forward collision avoidance, those same trims also include lane keeping assist and a driver attention warning system.
These systems work well together. The driver attention warning system makes sure that the driver is awake and alert, the lane keeping assist systems keeps your car in between the lines with slight steering corrections, and if it all goes south, the forward collision avoidance system can detect upcoming obstacles, warn the driver, and even engage the brakes automatically if no action is taken.
Does the 2020 Kia Soul have blind spot detection?
Blind spot detection along with rear cross-traffic collision warning and lane change assist are all available on the 2020 Kia Soul. However, pay attention, because the trim levels are a little different this time around.
These features still come standard on the S, but they also come standard on the X-Line, EX, and the GT-Line Turbo. In other words, the X-Line trim was included this time, but the GT-Line trim was left out. All three of these features are available as an option on the GT-Line trim though.
You may be wondering what the difference is between lane change assist and lane keeping assist. The former uses information from the blind spot system to alert you when you are about to make a lane change into an occupied lane. The latter just keeps you cruising between the lines.
