Uncompromised Safety Credentials

Kia’s commitment to continuous improvements in the safety and security of our vehicles can be seen throughout the development of all our vehicles.

At the crash test laboratories of Kia Motors’ Namyang Research and Development Centre, we undertake rigorous testing for a wide range of motor accident scenarios. From the early phase of development we create computer simulations to predict a vehicle’s safety and up to 100 crash tests of the vehicles are performed prior to launch.
