Kia Cadenza YG 2016-2023 Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW)/ Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA)

System description

Blind-Spot Collision Warning

Blind-Spot Collision Warning uses radar sensors in the rear bumper to monitor and warn the driver of an approaching vehicle in the driver's blind spot area.

1) Blind-Spot Area

It warns by detecting the vehicles in the blind spots. The blind spot detection range varies relative to vehicle speed.

Note that if your vehicle is traveling much faster than the vehicles around you, the warning will not occur.

2) Closing at high speed

BCW feature will alert you when a vehicle is approaching in an adjacent lane at a high rate of speed. If the driver activates the turn signal when the system detects an oncoming vehicle, the system sounds an audible alert.

Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist

Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist detects the front lane through the camera installed on the upper front windshield and detects the side/rear areas through rear corner radars.

BCA may activate the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) in accordance with a colliding possibility with an approaching vehicle while changing lanes. It is to lower the colliding risk or mitigate the colliding damage.
