Kia Forte: Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) system / LKA function change

Kia Forte 2019-2020 (BD) Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) system / LKA function change

The driver can change LKA to Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system or change the LKA mode between Standard LKA and Active LKA from the User Settings Mode on the LCD display.

The driver can choose the mode by placing the ignition switch to the ON position and by selecting ‘User Settings’, ‘Driver Assistance’, and ‘Lane Safety’.

The system is automatically set to Standard LKA when your vehicle is first delivered from the factory.

Lane Departure Warning

LDW alerts the driver with a visual and acoustic warning when the system detects the vehicle leaving the lane. In this mode, the system will not provide steering inputs. When the vehicle’s front wheel contacts the inside edge of the lane, LKA issues the lane departure warning.

Standard LKA

The Standard LKA mode guides the driver to keep the vehicle within the lanes. It provides inputs to the steering when the vehicle is about to deviate from the lanes.

Active LKA

The active LKA mode provides more frequent steering wheel control in comparison with the Standard LKA mode. Active LKA can reduce the driver’s fatigue by assisting the steering to help maintain the vehicle in the middle of the lane.
