New style 2019 remote on 2017 Sportage sx?

Question, would it be possible to buy the new style remote and program it to a 2017 Sportage sx. I really like the buttons on the side, probably much less prone to accidental pushes.

Hey KIA! Your FOB design SUCKS!!!

Does someone know if the newer 2019 remote version could be programed to a 2017. This model would be much better to avoid accidental button presses

Have not, expecting them to automatically shut down the idea

It looks like all it be is to program one like it. Surely if they can program a 2019 for it, they could key it to a 2017.

I like it. I'm really tired of accidental panic button activations.

Should be as simple as buying one and having it programmed for your car.

As I understand, FOBs are not cheap. Have you explored the costs?

If was $200, it would still be worth the cost IMO. I set off my alarm the other night in front of a shopping mall getting in the car. Such a silly design.
