KIA Drive Mode Select Feature

Many newer KIA models, including the 2018 KIA Optima and 2018 Sportage feature a drive mode selector that allows you to tailor and fine tune performance to suit your daily driving needs. The Drive Mode Select features three basic driving modes: Normal, Eco, and Sport. Each drive mode optimizes performance by changing transmission shift points, throttle response, and steering. Select KIA models provide a Snow Mode which optimizes performance for winter driving conditions. To use the Drive Mode Select, push the button near the gear shifter or on the steering wheel, depending on the model, to select a drive mode. The drive mode will then be displayed on the information display.

Normal Mode

Normal mode is perfect for everyday driving from work to carpooling. Normal mode provides an ideal combination of power, performance, comfort, and fuel economy. Normal mode is ideal for day to day driving.

Sport Mode

To maximize the performance in vehicles such as the new 2018 KIA Sorento, use the Sport Mode. When you employ sport mode, you will notice heightened performance, an enhanced throttle response and sharper transmission shift points. You will also notice more precise and responsive steering and control.

Eco Mode

In order to maximize fuel efficiency, consider activating ECO mode. With ECO mode, transmission shift points, throttle response, electrical systems are changed in order to achieve maximum fuel efficiency.
