The Kia Sportage was introduced in Australia in November 2021 and New Zealand in January 2022. This ANCAP rating is based on testing of Kia Sportage variants that are supplied to the European market. Kia have provided ANCAP with additional information to show that equivalent performance can be expected for vehicles supplied in Australia and New Zealand.
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.
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 an advanced speed assistance system (SAS) are fitted as standard equipment on all variants.
