Kia Sportage: Closing the liftgate / Automatic reversal

Kia Sportage QL (2015-2019) Owners Manual / Features of your vehicle / Power liftgate / Closing the liftgate / Automatic reversal

During power opening and closing if the power liftgate is blocked by an object or part of the body, the power liftgate will detect the resistance.

However, if the resistance is weak such as from an object that is thin or soft, or the liftgate is near the latched position, the automatic stop and reversal may not detect the resistance.
