Exterior Features

If the vehicle has a roof rack, you can load cargo on top of your vehicle.

Roof rack (if equipped)

Crossbars and fixing components needed to install the roof rack on your vehicle may be obtained from an authorized Kia dealer.


  • The crossbars (if equipped) should be placed in the proper load-carrying positions prior to placing items onto the roof rack.
  • If the vehicle is equipped with a sunroof, be sure not to position cargo onto the roof rack in such a way that it could interfere with sunroof operation.
  • When the roof rack is not being used to carry cargo, the crossbars may need to be repositioned if wind noise is detected.

Loading Roof Rack

  • When carrying cargo on the roof rack, take the necessary precautions to make sure the cargo does not damage the roof of the vehicle.
  • When carrying large objects on the roof rack, make sure they do not exceed the overall roof length or width.
  • When you are carrying cargo on the roof rack, do not operate the sunroof (if equipped). This can damage the sunroof.

The following specification is the maximum weight that can be loaded onto the roof rack. Distribute the load as evenly as possible across the crossbars (if equipped) and roof rack and secure the load firmly.


Loading cargo or luggage in excess of the specified weight limit on the roof rack may damage your vehicle.

The vehicle’s center of gravity will be higher when items are loaded onto the roof rack. Avoid sudden starts, braking, sharp turns, abrupt maneuvers or high speeds that may result in loss of vehicle

Audio system

If you install an aftermarket HID head lamp, your vehicle’s audio and electronic devices may malfunction.

If your vehicle is equipped with a multimedia system, refer to a separately supplied manual for detailed information.



The roof antenna transmits and receives wireless signals such as AM/FM, Sirius XM, GNSS, etc.

The signals that the antenna can transmit and receive vary by the vehicle option.

USB port

You can use a USB port to plug in a USB.


How vehicle radio works

FM reception


AM and FM radio signals are broadcast from transmitter towers located around your city. They are intercepted by the radio antenna on your vehicle. This signal is then processed by the radio and sent to your vehicle speakers.

In some cases the signal coming to your vehicle may not be strong and clear.
This can be due to factors, such as the distance from the radio station, the closeness of other strong radio stations or the presence of buildings, bridges or other large obstructions in the area.
AM reception


AM broadcasts can be received at greater distances than FM broadcasts. This is because AM radio waves are transmitted at low frequencies. These long-distance, low-frequency radio waves can follow the curvature of the earth rather than traveling straight. In addition, they curve around obstructions resulting in better signal coverage.

FM radio station


FM broadcasts are transmitted at high frequencies and do not bend to follow the earth’s surface. Because of this, FM broadcasts generally begin to fade within short distances from the station. Also, FM signals are easily affected by buildings, mountains, and obstructions. This can lead to undesirable or unpleasant listening conditions which might lead you to believe a problem exists with your radio.
The following conditions are normal and do not indicate radio trouble

  • Fading – As your vehicle moves away from the radio station, the signal will weaken and sound will begin to fade. When this occurs, we suggest that you select another station with a stronger signal.


  • Flutter/Static – Weak FM signals or large obstructions between the transmitter and your radio can disturb the signal causing static or fluttering noises to occur. Reducing the treble level may lessen this effect until the disturbance clears.


  • Station Swapping – As an FM signal weakens, another more powerful signal near the same frequency may begin to play. This is because your radio is designed to lock onto the clearest signal. If this occurs, select another station with a stronger signal.
  • Multi-Path Cancellation – Radio signals being received from several directions can cause distortion or fluttering. This can be caused by a direct and reflected signal from the same station, or by signals from two stations with close frequencies. If this occurs, select another station until the condition has passed.

Using a cellular phone or a two-way radio
When a cellular phone is used inside the vehicle, noise may be produced from the audio system. This does not mean that something is wrong with the audio equipment. In such a case, try to operate mobile devices as far from the audio equipment as possible.
When using a communication system such as a cellular phone or a radio set inside the vehicle, a separate external antenna must be fit-ted. When a cellular phone or a radio set is used with only the internal antenna, it may interfere with the vehicle’s electrical system and adversely affect the safe operation of the vehicle.

Cell phone use
Do not use a cellular phone while driving. Stop at a safe location to use a cellular phone.

Distracted driving
Driving while distracted can result in a loss of vehicle control that may lead to an accident, severe bodily injury, or death. The driver’s primary responsibility is in the safe and legal operation of a vehicle. Any use of handheld devices, other equipment, or vehicle systems that take the driver’s eyes, attention, and focus away from the safe operation of a vehicle are not permissible by law. These should never be used during the operation of the vehicle.
