Guys

Is raining, im bored so I got the manual out, now im confused

From the picture below you can see I have a steering wheel icon,
Product Automotive lighting Gadget Eyelash Automotive design

I assumed this was Lane Keep Assist and the car between two lines was Lane Depature Warning but according to the manual its Lane following assist, which the Kia web site isnt available for the G/Tline nor do I have smart cruise control which the manual states is needed for Lane following assist , any one any ideas

So the wheel is steering assistance. Part of the lane keeping system. Will keep car in the centre of the lane going round turns on motorways.
best to give it a try and see how it works as manual will just make it more confusing

Thanks, tried both, zero difference both gently control steering! Something off or got lost in the translation in the manual

To clarify, and add to confusion at the same time:
Lane Keep Assist and Lane Follow Assist have changed in behaviour, meaning and symbols over the years.

I know for certain that only the camera is used by LKA/LFA on previous generation autonomous driving vehicles that are not equipped with smart cruise control and automatic lane changing.

The meaning of Follow in the literature seems to have changed: on more recent vehicles which are equipped with more advanced autonomous driving aids, LFA describes following the lane of traffic even through lane changes.

I believe that the OP's car, due to the model year (2019) and the symbols (car between solid lines, separate steering wheel) is the MY2020 behaviour change.
The radar is not involved in Lane Keep Assist and Lane Follow Assist on such models, whether with or without smart cruise control and/or radar.
E.g. My Stonic does not have cruise control but has a radar, used for other functions such as emergency impact avoidance etc.

On the OPs model, LKA (Lane Keep Assist) refers to the ability to use lane markings to keep the vehicle within the detected road markings, only nudging the steering wheel if the drivers veers off to the side. When disabled via the button on the steering wheel, this nudging is disabled, but the Lane Departure Warning system is still active.
The Lane Follow Assist (active when the steering wheel symbol shows, like in the OP's picture) is a more advanced alternative to LKA and behaves differently: it uses either the lane markings (if detected), the vehicle in front (if detected), or both.
It does it all through the same camera used by the LKA (which is why LKA and LFA symbols are both visible when LFA is activated).
LFA, unlike LKA, will keep the vehicle centred in the lane, using the combined presence of lane markings and/or a vehicle in front.
Which means LFA works even in situations where the LKA would not function.
It is common, when LFA is enabled, to see the steering wheel symbol on the dash illuminated green, but the lane+vehicle symbol in white: this indicated a vehicle in front has been detected and the steering is being actively controlled, but no lane markings were detected.

Literally used it on the drive home.
70mph on A3 lka and steering assist let go of wheel and car went round the bend keeping me in centre of lane. With steering off it would only keep me in lane not steer around bend

My steering wheel is used for steering the car. If I am driving, I do that myself because I am in control of the vehicle. Beware all cyclists, pedestrians and sundry wildlife that may not get steered around because the "steering assist" is in control!!! If I hit anything, it will be due to the nut on the steering wheel!
