The current shape Kia Sportage was released as a 2016 model and comes with a very high level of equipment.
It shares the same hands-free proximity boot opening set up as the Hyundai Tucson. The boot opens when the remote comes into range.
Despite having a factory transponder immobiliser, push to start button and proximity remote locking it does not have an alarm as standard.
Kia Sportage Upgrade Alarm
The good news is that the Cobra AK4615 CAN-BUS alarm works perfectly with the factory proximity remote set up.

The Cobra uses the factory bonnet switch and integrates with the Kia CAN-BUS system flawlessly.
Here are some photos of the installation (Not much to see other than the LED Control Panel and Ultrasonic Sensors).
