Forte Feature Friday? Cool!
Maybe you’ve already heard that the Forte is an affordable vehicle packed with the latest technology and features. If you haven’t, you should probably bookmark our blog or follow us on Facebook, because we’re going to be singing it’s praises for the rest of the month. We don’t want to bog you down with a wordy post, so we’re putting the spotlight on one particularly awesome feature today.
Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS)
LKAS is available in the Forte SX trim level and it’s one of our favourite driver assistance features. If you’ve read this far, you’re probably wondering what it is.
As much as we’d all like to say we’re perfect drivers, the LKAS is a feature designed to keep Kia drivers and their passengers safe. A camera located in the windshield monitors lane position. If your vehicle crosses the lane markers and you haven’t signaled, the Forte gives you an audible and a visual warning.
Another cool feature of the LKAS is that in certain conditions the vehicle will actually steer you back to the center of the lane. It’s like an invisible hand on the steering wheel, working to protect you. And because it’s always better to see something in action, check out this video of the Kia LKAS:
