Below a movie (korean) with a lot of feature details.
Don't know if these features are available in all models / regions


The features that I didn't know of:
  • NFC opening (digital key) (2:40)
  • auto tailgate opening function (31:10)
  • some kind of dashcam feature (and content downloadable by phone) (32:20)

  • We know this from some of the UK publications but holding the left paddle shift engages max regen (15:10) (like i-Pedal but temporary. "MAX" is displayed on the IP
  • Holding the right paddle shift engages smart regen (auto regen) that uses traffic pattern (I assume via the car's camera/radar/ultrasonic sensors), navigation map information and the driver's history of letting off the pedal at particular locations (15:19)
  • Sport mode engages full-time AWD (16:15)
  • Normal mode is balances the front and rear motor power according to driving conditions (16:30)

The NFC opening would be great if we get it.
The auto opening tailgate is a normal Kia thing. My 2017 UK Sportage auto opened.
A built in dashcam would be great too. Why don’t all manufacturers build them in? They only cost a few £.

I read something a while ago where manufacturers selling in the uk didn't want to get involved with privacy laws regarding possible filming of third parties.

There are no EU rules that stop you from using a dashcam - that's why we have dashcams in the EU!
No one said there were. The comment relates to manufacturers making a factory fitting of them. In point of fact dashcams are banned in Portugal and their use severely restricted in France and Germany.

The regulations differ between European countries:

Usage of Dash Cameras in Europe
The usage of dash cams in Europe is very diverse. Europe owns half of the global market share of dashcam technologies. But still, many of Europe’s nations have banned the usage of the device. In Russia for example, people use dash cameras in their private vehicles because of high rates of accidents, unsafe roads, and police corruption. Whereas in Austria, Luxembourg, and Portugal, usage of recording devices such as dash cams in the public has been declared illegal.
The biggest challenge Europe faces with dash cams is overcoming privacy infringement. Belgium and France have legalized its usage only in private spaces while preventing people from uploading the footage on social media. Germany on the other hand has passed a law that allows dash cam recordings to be used as pieces of evidence in courts. It however maintains sensitive details like number plates or facial recognitions should be presented in an obscured form for the sake of privacy.
