The radar-based smart cruise control got on and off the throttle and brakes too abruptly as it followed other cars up Hwy 101. We finally just switched it off.
Autoweek

Safety systems will include a collision warning system, blind-spot detection, lane departure warning, parking sensors and a 360-degree-view monitor display.
Edmunds

As expected, active safety features such as lane-departure, blind spot warning, and collision alert are part of the package.
Consumer Reports

Thus far, neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)  nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued crash-test safety ratings for the Kia K900. Company executives at the initial launch event said they expected the large luxury sedan to do well, but wouldn’t predict specific ratings from either organization.

The large Kia is fitted with eight airbags as standard, along with electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, and a tire-pressure warning system, all now essentially standard equipment on any new car.

The K900 comes with several electronic safety systems, including optional adaptive cruise control and an advance collision warning system with last-minute automatic braking. It also offers blind-spot proximity warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and a surround-view system with parking guidance. But while the K900 offers a camera-based lane-departure warning system, it doesn’t add lane correction to steer the car back into its lane—a feature offered on a number of other high-end luxury sedans.

One safety feature we’d like to see more often is the head-up display (HUD), which projects numeric speed, lane-departure graphics, and routing information in full color up to a point on the windshield just below the driver’s field of vision. After a brief period of acclimatization, the HUD becomes a standard part of driving—and considerably reduces the time a driver has to spend looking down at the dash and refocusing eyes from 100 feet to 18 inches ahead and back.

Conclusion

The 2015 Kia K900 hasn't yet been rated for crash safety; it comes with a few advanced safety systems, but nothing distinctive.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
