Unhappy Options for upgrading 2007 Magentis stereo

Hello everyone. I need some ideas regarding upgrading the AM/FM CD stereo on my 2007 Kia Magentis LX.

When I bought this car in 2007, I was really surprised that the CD player doesn't support MP3. I should have checked that out more thoroughly at the time, but seeing as MP3 technology was already very popular in 2007 I had incorrectly assumed the car stereo would be a little more capable. So basically for the last 7 years I haven't been able to play MP3 cds in my car which sucks, while many of my friends/family who had purchased other vehicles through the mid to late 2000s had decks which played MP3.

My Magentis CD deck has an AUX button, but for the life of me I can't find any AUX jack anywhere. Like what the heck. Forget bluetooth or USB, this deck is about as basic as one from a 1995 Camaro.

Does KIA offer any upgraded car stereo which would be compatible with my vehicle? I have the steering wheel controls, so I didn't want to lose that function if I were to go with an after market deck.

As far as third party aftermarket, are there any good models which will also allow the steering wheel controls (volume, scan, etc) to work? I just want a deck which has a little more advanced features - like mainly being able to play MP3 cds, and maybe also bluetooth and an aux/usb input.

Thank you in advance for any ideas.
