Kia Safety Tech: Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW)Nov 23rd, 2020
What is Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW)?Kia's award-winning Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW) system is one of the many exclusive safety technologies offered at Kia. Using sensors in the rear bumper of your vehicle, the system detects any vehicles in your blind spots as you drive down the road. Once activated, a small icon appears on your side mirror any time a vehicle is in your blind spot. An auditory beeping noise will join a flashing of the icon, warning you as you begin to switch lanes. This system is active over speeds of 30 km/h. The system is a critical part of your Kia’s safety in a world where distracted drivers are becoming more common. While the BCW has broad appeal, it really shows its value when you are switching lanes in tight bumper to bumper traffic, or when driving busy roads with the many motorcycles and bicycles in the Victoria area.
