Introducing the All-New Kia Niro
The all-new Kia Niro is an eco-friendly family car that has been designed with nature in mind and is built using sustainable materials.
As well as being built using sustainable and recycled materials, the all-new Niro will come with a choice of hybrid technologies, and will also be available as a dedicated electric vehicle (EV).
A striking design, new technology, and enhanced comfort carve the all-new Niro's identity, ensuring its place as a pivotal model within Kia's expanding eco-friendly line-up.
Design and Practicality
Following the same design language as other new Kia models, the all-new Niro takes inspiration from nature and blends it with a futuristic outlook. A prime example of this is the brand's 'tiger face', which extends from the bonnet and through to the front wings.
The crossover appearance is emphasised by a two-tone body, while a water-based paint that's free from harmful chemicals and isomers is used on the door panels to reduce environmental impact.
Inside, the all-new Niro offers a generous amount of space for passengers in both the front and back to enjoy. The seats now recruit a lightweight mechanism, which translates to more comfort and space inside.
Technology and Safety
Complementing the futuristic interior design are a host of innovative technologies, one of which is the newly introduced 'Greenzone Drive Mode'.
In essence, it'll automatically transfer the hybrid drivetrains into an all-electric drive mode where required. Using the onboard satellite navigation, it'll do this when you're in a green zone, which includes residential areas, or if you're near a school or hospital.
It'll even recognise your favourite places, including your home or place of work, and register that as a green zone.
The cabin follows a similar eco-friendly theme, with the headlining having been made using recycled wallpaper and the seats from Bio PU with Tencel from eucalyptus leaves. Finishing the irregular, yet aesthetically pleasing interior design is ambient mood lighting.
Engines and Performance
The all-new Niro will be available with three different drivetrains, all of which are engineered to offer excellent fuel efficiency and low/zero emission driving.
You'll be able to choose from the following options:
The HEV and PHEV variants come equipped with a super-efficient 1.6-litre smartstream engine to produce a total of 139bhp and 180bhp when paired with their respective 32kw and 62kw electric motors. PHEV models are also capable of travelling up to 40 miles using electric power alone.
Following on from the success of previous generations, the all-new Niro EV (BEV) has an impressive range of over 280 miles and a total power output of 201bhp.
