Active safety vs. Passive safety 2019 Kia Forte in red driving down the road

What is the difference between these types of safety features? It’s pretty simple, actually. Active safety features, such as rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, and collision avoidance, are meant to prevent accidents from happening in the first place. Passive features, meanwhile, are designed to limit the damage of a crash that cannot be avoided. Passive safety features include airbags, crumple zones, and automatic braking, which is also an active feature. The Forte comes with plenty of both kinds of safety features, so you can rest assured that you are secure when behind the wheel of this great compact ride.
