Hello from Miami, FL!

I've been looking for a Sorento for a few months now and just found one that is perfect. It is a 2017 Sorento SX FWD. The only thing that it is missing, unfortunately, is the Surround View Monitor feature which I am very fond of. I was wondering if it is possible to install the components needed to have that feature. Has anyone here done this? Where would I have to look to find the parts? Is it a hassle to install it yourself? Is it "plug and play"? Would a KIA Dealer install it? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I didn't know that you can get a Sorento SX FWD ? Do you mean a 360 view monitor ? It's only the SXL that have this option

Yea, I have the FWD. I didn't think I would need the AWD in Florida😅.

Yes! The 360 view Monitor. I know that the SXLs have them though I was just wondering if I bought the OEM mirrors and grill with the cameras included, would it be a plug and play matter(I do have the 8in touch screen). I was hoping that there might be a way to unlock this feature in the radio settings (the settings that require a code).

I did call Kia Motors and they gave me a generic response advising me not to make any aftermarket changes🙄.

I have the 360 view monitor on my 2019 SX (with Touring package) also. I am not sure if you can install it on an older year vehicle. Did you check with your dealer yet?

Not Yet. I'll try to call them this week. Thank you!

When I first owned the car I had the intention to install aftermarket 360 cam too, but after a while I got used to the dimension and life goes on without it ever since :)
