Kia Carens: Steering wheel / Electronic power steering (EPS)

Kia Carens RP (2013-2018) Owners Manual / Features of your vehicle / Steering wheel / Electronic power steering (EPS)

Power steering uses the motor to assist you in steering the vehicle. If the engine is off or if the power steering system becomes inoperative, the vehicle may still be steered, but it will require increased steering effort.
