Kia Sportage: Front seat adjustment for manual seat

Kia Sportage - Fifth generation (NQ5) - (2022-2024) - Owner's Manual / Safety features of your vehicle / Seat / Front seat adjustment for manual seat

The front seat can be adjusted by using the control levers located on the outside of the seat cushion.

Moving forward and backward

Adjust the seat before driving, and make sure the seat is locked securely by trying to move forward and backward without using the lever. If the seat moves, it is not locked properly.

Moving forward and backward

To move the seat forward or backward:

  1. Pull the seat slide adjustment lever up and hold it.
  2. Slide the seat to the position you desire.
  3. Release the lever and make sure the seat is locked in place.

Reclining seatback

Reclining seatback

To recline the seatback:

  1. Lean forward slightly and lift up the seatback recline lever.
  2.  Carefully lean back on the seat and adjust the seatback of the seat to the position you desire.
  3.  Release the lever and make sure the seatback is locked in place. (The lever MUST return to its original position for the seatback to lock.)

WARNING

Reclining seatback

Sitting in a reclined position when the vehicle is in motion can be dangerous.

Even when buckled up, the protections of your restraint system (seat belts and/ or air bags) are greatly reduced by reclining your seatback.

Seat belts must be snug against your hips and chest to work properly. When the seatback is reclined, the shoulder belt cannot do its job because it will not be snug against your chest. Instead, it will be in front of you. During an accident, you could be thrown into the seat belt, causing neck or other injuries.

The more the seatback is reclined, the greater chance the passenger's hips will slide under the lap belt or the passenger's neck will strike or become entangled in the shoulder belt.

Changing seat cushion height (if equipped)

Changing seat cushion height (if equipped)

To change the height of the seat cushion, push the lever upwards or downwards.

  • To lower the seat cushion, push down the lever several times.
  • To raise the seat cushion, pull up the lever several times.
