Kia Safety Tech: Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance (BCA)
What is BCA?
Kia’s Blind-spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) works hand in hand with the Blind-spot Collision Warning system (BCW). Using the same sensors located in the rear bumper, the BCA adds preventative measures should you begin to turn into a lane where there is a vehicle in your blind spot. Coupled with the audio and visual alerts present in the BCW, the system applies brake pressure to the wheels on the opposite side of the car, which leads to you steering back into your original lane. This groundbreaking safety feature received the Autoblog 2020 technology of the year for how effective and user friendly the system is.
Press the MODE button several times on the steering wheel until the 'User Settings' menu appears on the LCD.
Select Driver Assistance → Blind-spot safety with the MOVE switch ( ↑/↓) and the okay button on the steering wheel.
Select one of the following options:
Active Assist: The BCA and BCW turn on and get ready to be activated. Then, if a vehicle approaches the driver's blind spot area a warning sounds or braking power is applied.
Warning Only: The BCW turns on and gets ready to be activated. Then, if a vehicle approaches the driver's blind spot area only a warning sounds.
