How to Operate Kia Rear Cross Traffic Alert

A Little Help Looking Over Your Shoulder

Kia understands the complex driving situations that sometimes confront drivers out there on the road, and rear cross traffic is an exceptionally difficult scenario for even the most experienced drivers. Sometimes there’s a true blind spot, other times streets are built so that they feel crowded, and just glancing over your shoulder isn’t going to be enough to allow you to safely handle this situation. Kia developed Rear Cross Traffic Alert to help drivers stuck in this situation, especially drivers who are facing a dangerous situation and won’t even know it until the alert.

How Does Kia Rear Cross Traffic Alert Work?

Digital sensors on your vehicle are at the heart of this technology. As you’re backing up, Kia’s Rear Cross Traffic Alert will “sense” traffic that might be coming up behind you in your path. It utilizes the same sensors that are used by your rear backup camera. If you’re about to crash into a car behind you as you back up, you’ll get visual and auditory alerts that let you know, “Hey! Stop.” Rear Cross Traffic Alert is one of the most useful of all Kia safety measures, and it undoubtedly prevents many accidents annually.

Only some models of Kia come with Rear Cross Traffic Alert as a standard safety feature (higher trims are more likely to have this feature standard). Still other models will have this safety feature available as an optional feature or as part of an overall safety package that Kia might offer as an all-in-one package for extra with your “lower” trim. If you’re one of those drivers who dreads backing up when there might be coming behind you, then you’ll definitely want to get a vehicle with this feature! As time goes by, more Kia vehicles will have this feature as standard, but for now there are plenty of ways to make sure that this feature is included in your Kia package.
