Smarter AEB

Wheels (Australia) - - First Drives -

All Cerato sedans are now fit­ted with AEB – a solid step for­ward in a seg­ment where the po­ten­tially life­sav­ing equip­ment is far from stan­dard-is­sue – but the Sport+ grade goes a step fur­ther with a more in­tel­li­gent sys­tem that can de­tect pedes­tri­ans and cyclists, rather than just other cars. The same tech­nol­ogy is op­tional on the base S and mid-spec Sport at a cost of $1000, but putting it on the op­tions list for those grades rather than mak­ing it stan­dard range-wide seems like a missed op­por­tu­nity for Kia to take a po­si­tion of lead­er­ship on safety in the small-car seg­ment.
