The Kia Sorento will come with Blind-Spot View Monitor, acting as a second pair of eyes for drivers.
It is the first Kia in Europe offering the driving assistance feature as part of the Sorento’s fully digital 12.3in Supervision instrument cluster.
The blind spot monitor displays a high-resolution feed on the left or right side of the TFT-LCD instrument cluster if the driver indicates to change lane with another vehicle hidden in the blind spot.
A video of the blind spot takes place over the speedometer while still showing the driver the vehicle’s speed.
The video feed comes from wide-angle, high-resolution cameras hidden in the door mirror housings providing a wider angle than the mirrors.
Kia’s blind spot technology is offered to European buyers as part of a package that includes a Surround View Monitor and Parking Collision Avoidance Assist to make low-speed parking easier.
