Active safety features greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. There are optional safety features on the 2023 Kia Seltos which may add to the cost but should be strongly considered --- Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) and Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA).
Another advanced safety feature --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Side mirror turn signals are optional on the Kia Seltos. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.
