Why would they remove this feature??
I went from the 2017 Niro Hybrid to the 2021 PHEV and was shocked to learn that the car no longer chimed at me as I pulled forward to park! Though the window sticker says "Parking Distance Warning Forward/Reverse", the dealer later told me now only available for reverse? Seems stupid when you have backup camera to keep the reverse warning, but lose the forward parking chime??
This car fits me like a glove. Kia has thought of every feature and function to ensure convenience, ability, and performance. Not sure I would change anything if I could.
