We've given the unthinkable quite a bit of thought

Great effort was made to ensure the Sorento has exceptional safety performance, making it one of the safest SUV’s for occupants and pedestrians, and earning a 5-star ANCAP Safety Rating (2017 standard).

Six airbags

Driver & front passenger dual front and side airbags, plus two side-curtain airbags (1st & 2nd row) to help protect occupants & potentially reduce injuries in the event of a collision.

Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)

Using radar and camera data, the Sorento senses the potential for a collision with a pedestrian, car, or object ahead and applies emergency braking to avoid or reduce the effects of a collision.

Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS)

The system detects the lane using the onboard camera and informs you with a visual cue and warning sound if the vehicle begins to drift outside of its lane, without the driver indicating, alerting a possibly distracted driver.

Advanced Smart Cruise Control (ASCC)

ASCC uses radar sensor at the front of the vehicle to monitor the distance between you and the vehicle ahead. To preserve a pre-determined safe distance, the system will apply the brakes, and even stop the vehicle if necessary.

Blind Spot Detection (BSD) with Lane Change Assist (LCA)

The system can detect approaching vehicles with a distance of 70 metres. A visual and/or audible warning will alert you when they enter your blind spot zone, if you’re indicating to change lanes.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCA)
