Some key features include remote control, vehicle status and diagnostics, vehicle maintenance, emergency assistance, and driving statistics and history. These functions have been carefully selected and created to meet the needs of the functions most desired by a car owner.
A notable highlight is the climate control feature, which cools the car to the desired temperature before users settle into the driver’s seat, perfect for combating the sweltering heat in Singapore.

If the app detects faults, users will be notified via the smart messages feature, prompting them to schedule an appointment via the myC&C app to manage their vehicle’s maintenance.
Real-time trip logs, driving information and other information such as eco-score and speed model can also be accessed through the Kia Connect Lite, allowing users to learn more about their driving habits and their behavior over time. This allows users to better meet their daily schedule and monthly car budget expenses. In the coming months, Kia is set to launch four new car models – the Niro Hybrid, Niro EV, EV6 and Cerato Smartstream, which will be fully integrated into the new KCL.
