KIA Niro: Auto reverse function (if equipped)

Auto reverse function (if equipped)

The outside rear view mirror will move downwards when the vehicle is in R (Reverse) position to assist reverse parking.


The outside rear view mirror switch (1) position determines the mirror movement:

  • L/R: Outside rear view mirrors will move.
  • Center: Outside rear view mirrors will not move.

Auto Reverse function user setting


  1. Shift to P (Park).
  2. Move the switch to the L or R position depending on the mirror you want to adjust.
  3. Shift to R (Reverse).
  4. Adjust the mirror.

Initializing the Auto Reverse function


  1. Shift to P (Park).
  2.  Move the switch to the L or R position depending on the mirror you want to adjust.
  3. Shift to R (Reverse).
  4. Adjust the mirror higher than the standard angle.
  5. Shift to another gear position.


  • The outside rear view mirror is convex.

    Objects seen in the mirror are closer than they appear.

  • Use your interior rear view mirror or direct observation to determine the actual distance of following vehicles when changing lanes.
  • Do not adjust or fold the outside rear view mirrors while the vehicle is moving.

    This could result in loss of control, and an accident which could cause DEATH, SERIOUS INJURY, or property damage.


  • Do not scrape ice off the mirror face; this may damage the surface of the glass. If ice should restrict the movement of the mirror, do not force the mirror for adjustment. To remove ice, use a deicer spray, or a sponge or soft cloth with warm water.
  • If the mirror is jammed with ice, do not adjust the mirror by force. Use an approved spray de-icer (not cooling system antifreeze) to release the frozen mechanism or move the vehicle to a warm place and allow the ice to melt.
  • The mirrors stop moving when they reach the maximum adjusting angles, but the motor continues to operate while the switch is pressed. Do not press the switch longer than necessary, the motor may be damaged.
  • Do not attempt to adjust the outside rear view mirror by hand. Doing so may damage the parts.
  • The electric type outside rear view mirror operates even though the vehicle is in the OFF position. However, to prevent unnecessary battery discharge, do not adjust the mirrors longer than necessary while the vehicle is not running.
  • In case it is an electric type outside rear view mirror, don't fold it by hand.

    It could cause motor failure.

  • We recommend following the procedures in an orderly manner to change or initialize the auto reversing user settings. If you move to the next step before completing the previous one, the changed angle may not be changed or initialization may not work properly.
