Kia Models with Remote Start

Kia Sorento interior and steering wheel

When temperatures get low in Marion, going out to your car to leave for work in the morning can be a big ask. After all, even with the convenience of heated seats and steering wheels, it can take a few minutes for everything to warm up. When it’s bitterly cold out, that minute or so can feel like an eternity. An alternative to this is Kia remote start, which includes Kia UVO remote start and the remote start app, but which Kia models come with remote start? Kia of Muncie has the details!

Does Kia Offer Remote Start?

Remote start allows you to begin the ignition process on your vehicle without actually turning a key inside the vehicle, which is a really nice feature for cold Anderson mornings. Remote start systems from Kia often include the ability to turn on your car from your smartphone with the Kia remote start app, meaning if you have some distance between you and where you parked, you’re able to get the car nice and warm by the time you get out there.

So which Kia models offer this technology? As a standard feature, remote start is found on the following models:

Factory- or dealer-installed remote start is a great way to stay ahead of the coldest Fishers winter temperatures. Let’s go through the two options that exist for you to warm up your Kia.

Kia UVO Eco Services

With certain hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and electric vehicle models like the Kia Optima Hybrid, Kia Optima PHEV, Kia Niro, and Kia Niro PHEV, Kia UVO Eco Services gives you the ability to access and turn on climate control using the Kia UVO remote start app even when you’re not in or near your car.

Dealer-Installed Remote Start

If you’re looking at a conventionally-powered Kia model that’s not on the list, you’re not out of luck! At Kia of Muncie, we offer dealer-installed remote start which falls in line with Kia certified service, meaning it won’t void your warranty or risk vehicle problems down the road like the aftermarket solutions. We can also walk you through the Kia remote start app and the Kia UVO remote start system. Work with our service department to get started!
