In this guide, we’ll walk you through the simple steps to harness the power of this feature and make it work for you.

Enabling Auto-Folding Mirrors:

Locate the Mirror Adjustment Switches:

Begin by familiarizing yourself with the driver’s side door panel. Look for a switch that features outside mirror icons. This switch is your gateway to controlling the auto-folding mirrors.

Move the Switch to the Center Position:

Take the identified switch and move it to the center position. This action activates the auto-folding mirrors feature, allowing them to fold or unfold automatically in response to certain triggers.

Utilize Auto Mode:

With the switch in the center position, the mirrors will fold or unfold when you lock or unlock the vehicle using the smart key or the button on the outside door handle.

This hands-free functionality adds convenience to your daily routine.

Manually Folding the Mirrors:

Override Auto Mode:

Should you wish to fold the mirrors manually, locate the side of the switch that features a fold icon.

Press this side of the switch, and you should hear a soft mechanical sound, indicating that the mirrors are folding. This feature is handy when you want to take control of the folding process.

Unfolding the Mirrors:

To unfold the outside mirrors manually, press the side of the switch with the unfold icon.

The mirrors will remain in the open position even after turning off the engine and locking the vehicle.

This manual control ensures that you can choose when to fold or unfold the mirrors, adding a layer of flexibility to your driving experience.


Congratulations! You’ve now mastered the art of enabling or disabling the auto-folding mirrors on your Kia Sportage.

This feature not only makes navigating tight spaces a breeze but also gives you the autonomy to control the folding process manually.
