Does Kia offer a self-parking system on any of its cars?

Not in North America, at least not yet.

Kia offers Smart Park Assist, an automatic parallel-parking system, in Europe and other markets on the Optima sedan, Sportage SUV and other models. The automaker has not announced plans for the feature in North America, even on the 2014 Cadenza full-size sedan that Kia is touting for its technology.


Though auto-parking systems are available on moderately priced vehicles such as the Ford Focus and Toyota Prius, they are still mainly offered here by luxury brands such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Land Rover, and they don't appear to be big sellers. Lexus, for example, was the first to offer auto-park in the U.S. but has dropped the feature because of slow sales.
