Kia Sportage: Inside rearview mirror / Electric chromatic mirror (ECM)

Kia Sportage QL (2015-2019) Owners Manual / Features of your vehicle / Mirrors / Inside rearview mirror / Electric chromatic mirror (ECM)

The electric rearview mirror automatically controls the glare from the headlights of the vehicles behind you in nighttime or low light driving conditions. The sensor mounted in the mirror senses the light level around the vehicle and automatically controls the headlight glare from the vehicles behind you.

When the engine is running, the glare is automatically controlled by the sensor mounted in the rearview mirror.

Whenever the shift lever is shifted into reverse (R), the mirror will automatically go to the brightest setting in order to improve the drivers view behind the vehicle.
