A new level of interaction with the Kia Connect car app

Complimentary 7-year mobile app services that let you stay connected to your Kia car anytime, anywhere.

Key features of our Kia Connect services

  • Battery status and control

    With our Kia Connect app services, you can remotely start, stop and schedule charging, and see the status of your battery at a glance. Ideal to make the most of off-peak electricity prices or to know if your car has reached enough battery to go.

  • Vehicle status, notifications and remote commands

    Receive notifications on your app about key elements of your car such as door locks, windscreen washing fluid level and battery health. You can even lock and unlock doors remotely. What’s more, you have access to details of past trips and driving stats.

  • Climate Control*

    Remotely activate, set and schedule climate control so you no longer have to scrape that windscreen in winter. In addition, reaching your set temperature while the vehicle is charging helps you conserve precious driving range. *Available on EVs only.

  • Valet Mode

    Handing your keys over to someone else? Activating the valet mode in your Kia lets you track your vehicle’s whereabouts and gives you stats about its speed, driving time and distance travelled.

  • Find My Car

    Connect your car and always know exactly where your Kia is parked. Let the Kia Connect app guide you to your car in confidence. Also, when parking before reaching your final destination, the app walks you the last bit of the way using Google Maps or augmented reality.

  • Favourite destinations and send-to-car

    Waste no time finding your destination. The favourite addresses you set in your app are replicated in your car. You can also find a destination on your phone and send it straight to your navigation system.
