I'm pretty sure that, just like others said here, the sensors and software are either identical or close to identical between the Kona and the Niro. The difference between the cars is the body and the interior and software interface to access all the functions but they do share almost exactly the same technology. There are settings on the Kona (and I assume on the Niro as well) where you can for example set the sensitivity of the FKA. You can set the sensors to "early" or "late" detection. LKA on the Kona is flawed but as others said, it's a tool to make you pay attention. Neither on the Kona or Niro it's meant to be what the Autopilot is on a Tesla. I have driven several other cars of other brands and the LKA had the same flaws as the ones on the Kona. Those systems aren't perfect or even close to perfect.. The closest you'll find is on Tesla cars. When it comes to the advanced features, Tesla is the most advanced. Nobody comes close. And... as we know, even Tesla's advanced system is not 100% perfect.. There have been accidents with autopilot, so, I would not "rely" on any of those features.. If you are worried about those features causing an accident, you can always turn them off. I have driven 25k miles in my Kona so far in less than 9 months and I have had no issue with any of them. Yes, the FKA warning goes off prematurely in some cases but it has never actually slammed the brakes prematurely, it just issued the warning fairly early.. I think that if you are deciding between the Kona and the Niro, it really only comes down to 2 things. a) do you want slightly more space for passengers and cargo or b) do you want slightly more range Maybe, some may have a preference for the software interface and dash layout of one or the other. From a pure technology perspective, both are just about the same car. You really can't go wrong with either one.
