I've successfully upgraded my GT-Line to have Cruise, and believe that every model is potentially capable.

There are three possible buttons available, the one you can buy on eBay isn't suitable for all models - only for those without the supervision monochrome display. Here's the eBay one;

As you can see, it lacks a flicky button for navigating the menus on the higher level display.

There's another version of this with different buttons, but it's essentially the same.

I believe all vehicles have the cable in the steering wheel, and the switch pack is about £16 off chinabay!

Did you need to do anything more than fit the appropriate buttons pad to the wheel?

Nope, it's plug and play mate. Search on AliExpress - they are listed with the Rio in the title, but the steering wheel appears to be shared between the models.

Aye, silly how they muck with the spec. I'd gladly have paid extra from the dealer for it too, but it's not offered.

Just an update to say I've done this now to a 69 plate "1" spec Picanto, and cruise works fine on there without any programming :)

Will need to be a base model Rio as Sport and GT Line have LKA!
Hi,
I have a Sept 2020 1.25 GT Line and it doesn't have LKA.
Cyberprog, Im assuming I have the same model as yourself - do you have a link to the part you purchased?

I found mine on AliExpress - the guy selling them on eBay is selling the wrong buttons for a vehicle with the higher spec LCD.

£3.78 23%OFF | Steering Wheel Button For KIA K2 RIO 2017 2018 2019 RIO X LINE Buttons Bluetooth Phone Cruise Control Volume . US $4.8 23% OFF|Steering Wheel Button For KIA K2 RIO 2017 2018 2019 RIO X LINE Buttons Bluetooth Phone Cruise Control Volume .|Car Switches & Relays| - AliExpress

You need a "Model B" switch, or you lose the trip computer functions.

Many thanks for the prompt reply.
I just thought - as well as cruise control, if you press the "Mode" button, does it change from cruise to speed limiter, like the Honda's ? Buttons and panel layout look very very similar.....

Mine certainly does, but I don't think the lower models do. I'll have to ask the guy I put the other switch on.
