Everyone knows that driving at night involves more risk than driving in daylight. But do you exactly how much more dangerous nighttime driving is? According to the 2009 data from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 49% of fatal car crashes happen at night.
That being said, many people can’t avoid driving at night, especially office workers who punch out around dusk. Fortunately, the 2016 Kia Cadenza has clever technologies to help you drive safely even during nighttime:
HID stands for high-intensity discharge and as the name suggests these headlamps produce a brighter light than the usual halogen lamps. If it’s time to get a new car, consider getting a 2016 Kia Cadenza as this vehicle comes standard with HID lights, which provides greater visibility on the road at night.
When you’re on the road at night, it’s even more important to keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. This is where Kia’s UVO eServices comes in handy. Using this system, you can launch your car’s navigation system and call home using just your voice. All you have to do is download the UVO eServices app onto your phone and this technology instantly becomes your trusty co-pilot.
Blind Spot Detection
In the dark of night, it’s hard to keep track of cars behind you especially when driving on highways. It’s a good thing, then, that the new Cadenza comes with a blind spot detection system. Since the system uses a radar instead of rear-mounted cameras, the lack of light won’t prevent it from detecting cars that are veering too close to your car.
Nighttime driving is a fact almost all drivers have to face. While risks certainly exist, motorists can rest assured that new technologies are making evening drives safer than ever. If you’re keen on driving a Kia near Fort Bliss, TX, just visit a Kia dealership near you.
