Active Safety & Driver Assistance

The 2023 Kia Forte offers the Kia Drive Wise Driver Assist Technology suite to give you greater confidence behind the wheel. It includes a plethora of standard and available features, such as:

  1. Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist - Lets you know if a fellow driver is in your blind spot.
  2. Lane Keeping Assist - Provides corrective steering, if necessary, to help you stay safely between the lines on the road until you intend to change lanes. 
  3. Driver Attention Warning - Sends an alert if it detects signs of distracted or fatigued driving to remind you to pull over to rest.

With available Navigation-Based Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, you’ll be able to enjoy your daily drives even more. This system uses directional and navigational data as well as sensors to maintain a safe distance between you and the car ahead. When traffic slows, the Kia reduces speed, and then returns the model to your standard settings when traffic resumes.
