Active safety features can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. An active safety system that is standard on the 2023 Kia Sportage is Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA). There are optional safety features on the 2023 Kia Sportage which may add to the cost but should be strongly considered --- Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) and Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA).
Another safety feature seems simpler but should still be considered. Optional side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.
