Kia Picanto: Steering wheel / Electric power steering

Kia Picanto JA 2017-2022 Owner's Manual / Features of your vehicle / Steering wheel / Electric power steering

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.

The motor driven power steering is controlled by the power steering control unit which senses the steering wheel torque, steering wheel position and vehicle speed to command the motor.
