Kia Rio: Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) / Manual Mode

Kia Rio 2017-2020 YB Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) / Manual Mode

Whether the vehicle is stationary or in motion, Manual Mode is selected by pushing the shift lever from the D (Drive) position into the manual gate. To return to D (Drive) range operation, push the shift lever back into the main gate.

Manual Mode manages the driving dynamics by automatically adjusting the steering effort and the engine and transmission control logic for enhanced driver performance.

In Manual Mode, moving the shift lever backwards or forwards will allow you to make gearshifts rapidly. In contrast to a manual transmission, the Manual Mode allows gearshifts with the accelerator pedal depressed.

Up (+) : Push the lever forward once to shift up one gear.

Down (-) : Pull the lever backwards once to shift down one gear.
