If you are looking for a family vehicle, then at the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter how cool the car looks, or what great comfort features there are. There’s one thing that stands above the rest: safety. Taking preventative measures in case the car gets hit is very important for a family vehicle. So, how safe is the 2018 Kia Soul? We’re about to go into specifics, but in short; very. You can rest easy if you drive the Kia Soul, because there are plenty of safety features and driver-assist technologies that can potentially help keep you and your family safe. Let’s find out what they are.
To start with, the 2018 Kia Soul has dual front advanced airbags, dual front seat-mounted side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags. Helping with your vehicle’s stability is the Electronic Stability Control, and Vehicle Stability Management.
To help keep your children secure, the 2018 Kia Soul has the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children system, also known as LATCH. Speaking of children, there are rear child-safety door locks to help prevent any accidental door-opening in the backseat while the car is in motion.

Now that you know about the safety features, let’s focus on the driver-assist technologies that are available in some trims. These include technologies such as the Lane Departure Warning System. The system alerts the driver to when the vehicle you are driving is about to leave the lane. This can potentially be helpful if your attention has been diverted from the road, causing your vehicle starts to slip into a different lane.
The Blind-Spot Detection System warns you when there is a vehicle in your blind spot. This can potentially help you avoid collisions with vehicles in your blind spot.
Of course, these are only some of the technologies available in the 2018 Kia Soul. If you are interested in learning more, then feel free to contact us here at Moritz Kia. We are always happy to answer any questions you have.
