----- ----- -----

Dual Front Advanced Airbags - When used with properly fitted seat belts, this advanced system helps detect the presence of a front seat passenger, monitors the severity of an impact and controls airbag inflation accordingly to help reduce injuries in certain collisions.

Driver's Side Knee Airbag - When used with seat belts, the Driver's Side Knee Airbag offers an additional level of enhanced safety and can be effective at reducing injuries from certain collisions.

Dual Front Seat-Mounted Side Airbags - When used with seat belts, the Dual Front Seat-Mounted Side Airbags offer an additional level of enhanced safety and can be effective at reducing injuries from certain collisions.

Side Curtain Airbags (1st, 2nd, and 3rd Rows) - Side Curtain Airbags, when used in tandem with properly fitted seat belts for all seating positions can reduce injuries. The airbag system is managed by a number of advanced sensors that detect when an accident is imminent or underway and deploy the necessary airbags.

Rollover Sensor - If the airbag sensors detect an impending rollover; the system can deploy the side airbags, side curtain airbags and seat-belt pretensioners.

3-Point Seat Belts for All Seating Positions - The first line of defense in safety are the seat belts. Front and rear 3-point seat belts are an integral part of an elaborate vehicle-wide safety system designed to help minimize the effects of an accident.

Front Seat-Belt Pretensioners - In the event of certain collisions, seat-belt pretensioners are designed to tighten the seat belts pulling the driver and occupants more snugly into their seats in anticipation of an impact to help to reduce the likelihood of injury.

Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), 4-Wheel Disc Brakes - The foundation of your Kia's active safety system, the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) uses electronic sensors at each wheel hub to detect when wheels begin skid. If skidding under braking is detected, ABS modulates brake force to reduce skidding which in turn allows for reduced braking distances in addition to helping you maintain control of your vehicle.

Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) - Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) adds steering direction control capability, intervening when appropriate to further stabilize the vehicle. It helps you regain control and return the vehicle to its intended path.

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) - Electronic Stability Control (ESC) offers an enhanced level of vehicle control and peace of mind by offering improved directional stability helping you maintain the vehicle's intended direction of travel. ESC monitors and assists in the control of key vehicle functions by braking individual wheels and reducing engine power accordingly.

Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) - Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) offers an added measure of security when moving from a stop on a steep hill by preventing the vehicle from rolling backward. It functions by gently applying the brakes for two seconds while you move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator.

High Line Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) offers the convenience and an added measure of preventative safety by constantly monitoring tire inflation pressures in all four tires. A warning light appears in the instrument cluster should any tire pressures drop below a specified range.

Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH), 3 Total - Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) is a universal child seat attachment system that allows for quick, easy and secure installation and removal of LATCH equipped child seats.

Rear Child-Safety Door Locks - The rear child-safety door locks offer peace of mind by enabling parents to disengage the interior door opening mechanism ensuring children can't open the rear doors while the vehicle is in motion.

Is it possible to get a breakdown on the car seat systems? I believe the third row has two sets of LATCH spots but only one rear top tether, now are there tether points behind the third row further down or ceiling anchors??
