Navigating Safety: Hyundai and Kia Commit to Over-zealous Safety Systems

Navigating Safety: Hyundai and Kia Commit to Over-zealous Safety Systems banner

Hyundai and Kia, the dynamic sister bands of the automotive world, are doubling down on their commitment to safety systems despite facing criticism for their over-zealous nature. Citing European compliance regulations, directives from head office, and customer feedback, both brands are determined to maintain stringent safety standards in their vehicles.

Striking a Balance

While Hyundai and Kia have faced scrutiny from the media and customers alike for the intrusive nature of their safety functions, executives from both companies emphasize the importance of striking the right balance. According to Roland Rivero, Kia Australia's product planning general manager, the alignment of Australia's automotive safety regulations with Europe, coupled with the relatively small size of the Australian market, has influenced the decision to implement these systems.

Responding to Feedback

Despite the persistence of these safety systems, Hyundai and Kia are not deaf to the feedback from their customers and the media. Bill Thomas, Hyundai Australia's public relations general manager, acknowledges that while some find the systems intrusive, many appreciate them as helpful driving aids. Both companies are committed to relaying feedback to their global product teams and making refinements and changes as necessary.

Continuous Improvement

Both Hyundai and Kia are actively working to address concerns and improve the user experience. Hyundai's Kona Electric and IONIQ 5 N models, for example, offer options to customize the settings of the safety systems, providing drivers with more control over their driving experience. Similarly, Kia has reduced the volume of audible speed warnings in response to customer feedback, with plans to implement similar updates in future models.
