Well, CD's are going the way of cassette tapes and 8-tracks ... so there's that.

i'm totally aware of that, my biggest problem from a "17" to "19" was my phone holder which use to be in the CD slot

Well, I did some research and have learned a few things.

I went to an OEM KIA online parts seller and got the OEM PN for the 2019 Sorento AM/FM/CD/SiriusXM and there was one on Ebay so I bought it. So far, so good.

Now for the antenna situation. The OEM AM/FM/XM shark fin antenna is pricey, about $210. I found an aftermarket AM/FM/XM shark fin antenna online for about $60. And I found an aftermarket shark fin XM antenna for about $30.

So, when I have the time - may be a few months, I'll take a look under the headliner at the rod antenna and see if there is a cable connector near the antenna. Hopefully there is. I think there will be because the OEM parts list shows a separate cable for each antenna. That may make the job easier. But I'll still need to run the XM cable to the back of the new radio.
Hi,
Can you post where you found that OEM PN? thanks

I'm in the same situation. Bought a 2019 Sorento LX with the base non/XM radio. It has the following pinouts in the back

It appears I'll need to add an XM antenna.

I found on Ebay this radio "96160-C6600WK" which is listed on the OEMParts site as the Sirius radio for the 2019 Sorento LX.
The challenge is figuring out what wiring is for the extra white plug "C" ??? I think this radio is for the OEM amplifier.

Any thoughts???

Upon further research I discovered this radio uses Digital audio output to feed the OEM amplifier. So it can't be swapped in behind the base unit, which directly feeds each speaker.

Back to the drawing board.
