ANCAP Safety

The Kia Sorento was first introduced in Australia and New Zealand in August 2020. This ANCAP safety rating applies to the 3.5 litre petrol, 2.2 litre diesel, HEV and PHEV variants.

Dual frontal, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting (curtain) airbags are standard. A centre airbag which provides added protection to front seat occupants in side impact crashes is also standard on all variants.

Autonomous emergency braking (Car-to-Car, Vulnerable Road User and Junction Assist) as well as a lane support system with lane keep assist (LKA), lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK), and a speed assist system (SAS) are standard on all variants.

A full list of safety features and technologies can be viewed within the Technical Report (see download link).
