Hmm, on July 21st I posted above that automatic parking would be available in Europe for MY2017. But I withdrew that claim because I can't find any real links or prices. Can you confirm this.
I just checked again on the Korean sites. I could not find any 2017 Kia models with auto park.
The 2017 Kia K5 PHEV (Optima) does not have auto park.
The 2017 N iro HEV has a Driving Safety option which costs $1750 It includes Advanced Smart Cruise Control (ASCC), Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) ,Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) , Blind Spot Detection (BSD) and a 4 inch Nav screen. It does not have auto park. The standard trim N iro comes with a 3.5 inch Navigation screen. The full 8 inch screen comes with the Navigation option which costs $1430.
For Hyundai: Only the S onata PHEV has auto park.
The 2017 S onata PHEV does have an auto park option. Its called the Convenience Package and costs $830. It includes the Advanced Smart Parking Assist System (SPAS), driving position memory system and side curtains.
The 2017 S onata PHEV also has a Driving Assist option which costs $1830 It includes Advanced Smart Cruise Control (ASCC), Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) ,Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) , Blind Spot Detection (BSD) and Smart Hi-Beam. See http://pr.kia.com/en/wow/drive-wise/dri ... -assist.do
for details of these options.
The 2017 Grandeur HEV also has the Driving Assist option which costs $775. I guess the cameras / radars / sensors were already included in the standard trim. Couldn't find auto park.
I don't think the APAS auto-park system with 12 ultrasonic sensors will ever be released. It is more likely that a more advanced version such as the Advanced Smart Parking Assist System (SPAS) will be.
There is discussion of the newer tech and sensors here - Advanced Driving Assistance pack (ADAP)
