The 2016 Sedona: Safety First

4. November 2015 13:29 by Administrator | 0 Comments

The all-new 2016 Sedona features beautifully crafted, luxurious features like the available Nappa leather wrapped, reclining, heated rear seats with leg rests and available tri-zone automatic climate control. Which is why you’d never want to see it in any dire situations, like dangling from a crane for example. But sometimes to prove a point, you need to go to extreme lengths – or heights. You see, in the case of the Sedona, these luxurious features weren’t the first thing on our engineers’ minds – the families who will be driving it were. So before thinking of how many cup holders should be included and what seating material families would enjoy, they instead thought of how we can make this the safest possible vehicle for families to enjoy. Safety starts from the ground up. With the Sedona, that means using 52% advanced high-strength steel throughout the body to provide front and roof reinforcement as well as front and side impact dispersion to ensure your family’s protection in the event of a collision. Working with this rigid structure is an advanced system of front-impact airbags, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. But to prevent a collision from occurring is a long list of active safety systems like the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system, the Traction Control System (TCS), Cornering Brake Control (CBC) and many more advanced systems that gives you assured command of the road. Now, of course seeing all of this hard work being dropped 41 feet from a crane would be an utter shame. But to demonstrate how all of this focus on safety has paid off and why the Sedona is so deserving of a Top Safety Pick by IIHS and a 5-Star Safety Rating by NHTSA, we did just that in a new kind of crash test video and we’d love for you to see the results below.   Learn more about the all-new 2016 Sedona and all of its safety features at www.kia.ca/Sedona
