2017 Kia Sorento MAF or MAP sensor?

I have a 2017 Kia Sorento 2.4 lx. I'd like to know whether if it has a MAF sensor or a MAP sensor and it's location (picture if possible) so I can first try to clean it before replacing it.

The issue I had was infrequent. I started the car and it started shaking, I pressed the gas all the way in and it wouldn't respond, then it turned off. When I started the car again, everything was back to normal.

MAP is normally located on or around throttle body and should be easy to remove. You can pull it out and spray clean it with carb cleaner, shake cleaner off and let it dry then reinstall and check how engine starts and runs.
I had hard start and shaking issue (sometimes wouldn't even start) with Forte and MAP cleaning fixed it right away.
