Korando looks and handles well, but that's not all - it's also the safest and strongest Korando ever. A focus on safety is built-in from the body up, with a best-in-class chassis composed of 74% high-tensile strength steel. KGM has also fitted a 6 airbag system - which includes driver and passenger seat airbags, side and curtain airbags. This has all helped the Korando score 5 stars in the Euro NCAP test.
Evaluating data from the vehicles’ on-board camera, Forward Collision Warning (FCW) can detect a potential collision with a vehicle, pedestrian, or obstacle. If a collision appears imminent FCW will warn the driver and, if there is insufficient response, Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) will intervene with appropriate braking force to stop the vehicle or minimise damage.
ESP constantly monitors road conditions and vehicle status and automatically adjusts engine output and braking whenever the driver is about to lose control. It integrates the ABS, active rollover protection, anti-slip regulation and brake-force assist.
Active rollover protection (ARP), is a system that recognises impending rollover and selectively applies brakes to resist. ARP builds on electronic stability control and its three chassis control systems already on the vehicle - anti-lock braking system, traction control and yaw control.
ABS uses electronics to detect and prevent wheel lock up. This helps a driver maintain control of a vehicle when braking in low grip situations, because a car's steering will still work when ABS is engaged.
Alerts the driver when another vehicle or pedestrian appears in the path of the vehicle.
Notifies the driver when the forward camera module detects an unintended lane departure by the vehicle.
Alerts the driver when the preceding vehicle begins to depart.
Front camera helps prevent unintended lane departure by making a corrective steering adjustment.
High Beam Assist detects oncoming vehicles and the rear lights of vehicles in front and dips headlamp high beams accordingly.
Automatically alerts the driver when time at the wheel has exceeded safe limits.
This function informs the driver of the time interval between their vehicle and the vehicle in front so that a safe stopping distance between the two vehicles can be maintained.
