I think someone conflated LDW with LKAS. They are different. No US 2017 had LKAS available.

Hum.!! is it me or i dont see where is the big difference when i look in the 2017 "Features and Functions Guide" book. Yes, it shows the LWDS system, but LKAS is displayed in the same option. So the option was there in 2017 HEV model.!

LKAS is not in the page you posted. It was not available in the North American 2017 Niro or Ioniq models.

The page lafe005 posted doesn't specifically refer to LKAS, but it describes behavior that calls to mind what I think of as LKAS in that it states "while applying a slight adjustment to the steering". Of course, there's also a curious repetition between the 2nd and 3rd paragraphs where the 2nd describes both LDWS and LKAS and the 3rd repeat's the 2nd's description of LDWS while saying nothing about LKAS. Looks to me like a probable error in the documentation.

During 2017, Kia was providing manuals in rather bad translations to a number of English speaking countries. Cars sent to other countries did have LKAS available on some trims or options. Probably a bit of a nightmare to patch together manuals for different countries. In any case, the manuals are poorly written and executed and have quite a number of errors or misleading language.

Hey, that's over the top. I think your post is out of line. I for one, am glad we have yticolev here. I've learned a lot from him.

As the owner of a 2017 HEV with the tech package I concur there may there was no LKAS on the 2017s, just LDW. I was buying near the end of the model year so I remember quite well when the switch to 2018 came and LKAS was added.

I couldn’t wait a month or two to buy though as my previous car had been rear ended and totaled and I was paying daily for a rental. The 2018s coulda saved me some money though as they changed the options so I coulda gotten the tech package without I don’t really care about like the sunroof.
