And if you choose our optional hire car cover:
- We’ll provide the use of an electric or hybrid hire car if your green machine is off the road
Kia Safety features
Most newer Kias have a number of beneficial safety features
- Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) helps you stay in lane on the road. If you lose concentration and start to stray from your lane (moving out of it without indicating), the instrument cluster alerts you.
- Kia's Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and Emergency Stop Signalling (ESS) help in emergency situations. AEB can identify critical situations early and alert the driver. It can also brake for you, potentially avoiding a collision or at least reducing the severity of a crash by lowering the speed of collision.
- Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) checks the air pressure inside the tyres and warns you if it drops below the recommended level. It can give you an early warning of a slow puncture so you'll be less likely to have a 'blow out'.
Kia e-Niro and Soul insurance
So, where do Kia stand on electric cars?
Here's the lowdown:
- The launch of the KIA EV6
Kia’s crossover-style EV6 electric car will spearhead a new range of electric models set to take over Kia showrooms in the future. All EV6 models are equipped with a 77.4kWh battery pack which provides a range of up to 328 miles. A particular highlight is the vehicle-to-load (V2L) function, which can supply up to 3.6kW of power to an external device. It could even be used to charge another EV, if needed.
- Enhanced battery
Thee-Niro – the What Car? of the year winner in 2019 and the new Kia Soul boast an enhanced 64 kWh lithium battery that provides you with a driving range of up to 280 miles on a single charge.
- Zero CO2
The e-Niro and Soul both emmit 0 CO2 emissions which means they're great for the environment.
- Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)
This protection gives you warning signals and automatically brakes if you don't react (when it detects any risk of collision.) A radar and a camera detect potential dangers in the car's path, including pedestrians, cyclists and cars.
- Seven year warranty
Kia offer a 7 year (or 100,000 mile warranty) on all their cars, they're the only manufacturer in Europe that offers this on all models.
