Kia Digital Key 2 Touch is a convenient connected service that turns your iPhone or Android into your car key, eliminating the need for a separate fob. If you link your personalised profile and vehicle settings to your digital key, your vehicle will automatically revert to your preferred settings for side mirrors, seat position, steering wheel position, infotainment, and climate control whenever you get into the vehicle. You can even share digital keys with up to 3 people and control their access to your vehicle.
