Kia Technology

Korean automotive giant Kia Motors has always been at the forefront of technological development. This heritage of innovation has allowed the company to develop world-class automation. 

Let’s look at the technology that we repute Kia for:


DRIVE WiSE is Kia Motors’s state-of-the-art autonomous driving technology. The brand hopes to introduce this innovation in the coming years. Designed to protect occupants from on-road dangers by providing a software-controlled driving experience, DRIVE WiSE is set up to usher in a new era of automotive engineering. 

The DRIVE WiSE will include advanced safety features such as driving assist, forward collision avoidance assists, forward collision warning, blind-spot warning, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, lane following assist, highway driving assist, parking assist perpendicular reverse, and rear cross-traffic alert. 

In-car Connectivity 

We know Kia cars for being one of the most well-connected vehicles on the market. The brand offers in-car connectivity, such as Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Harman/Kardon Premium Sound System with QuantumLogic, iPhone & Siri compatibility, Google Maps, Clari-Fi restoration technology, UVO eServices, Bluetooth, 12V outlets with USB port, satellite radio, & AM/FM. 


Kia Motors’ technological scope extends to its engineering. Using high tensile steel, Kia equipped the vehicle with bumper technology for pedestrians to protect them from serious injury if a collision occurs. Other safety features like tire pressure monitoring system, emergency stop signal, vehicle stability management, seatbelt pre-tensioners, and airbags make Kia cars very safe. 

Idle, Stop & Go Technology

Studies show that stop-start technology can improve a car’s fuel economy by 8% when driving in heavy traffic. This can reduce your carbon footprint tremendously. 

Kia’s sustainable technologies seek to do just this. The Idle, Stop & Go technology reduces fuel consumption and improves driving efficiency. This intelligent system will turn the car’s engine off automatically when the car comes to a complete stop, and it just-as-automatically restarts the car when the driver releases the brakes.
