Kia Sportage: Curtain air bag
Curtain air bags are located along both
sides of the roof rails above the front
and rear doors.
* The actual air bags in the vehicle may

They are designed to help protect occupants
in certain side impacts and to help
prevent them from ejecting out of the
vehicle as a result of a rollover, especially
when the seatbelts are also in use.
- The curtain air bags are designed to
deploy during certain side impact collisions,
depending on the severity of
impact. However, when side deployment
threshold is satisfied at frontimpact,
side air bags may deploy.
- The curtain air bags may deploy on

low-speed collisions where the air bag
would not add any benefit beyond the
protection already offered by the seat
Front air bags are not designed to
inflate in rear collisions, because
The Supplemental Restraint System
(SRS) is virtually maintenance-free and
so there are no parts you can safely service
If the SRS air bag warning light does not
appear, or continuously remains on,
