Exterior & Interior Design

The new Kia lineup was inspired by Kia’s Opposites United philosophy, balancing eco-friendliness and a vision toward the future. It also takes influence from the HabaNiro concept from 2019. It all starts with the unique headlight design, reminiscent of the new Telluride and Sportage models, prominently at home on the “Tiger Nose” front. The side of the vehicle is highlighted by black wheel arches and garnishes. Find 17 inch wheels on the EV, 16 or 18 inch options on the HEV and 16 inches on the PHEV. The rear taillight is inspired by the Sportage again, with a balanced design that blends contrasts.

Updated on the interior of the Niro is the design of the cabin to be even more minimalist and sleek. Connective technology makes itself home in the form of a 4.2-inch Super Vision (a 10.25-inch version is also available) and an 8-inch or 10.25 inch display screen with a crisp interface. It’s not just the powertrain systems that make the vehicle eco-friendly, as the cabin materials were made from recycled material and no animal products. Speaking of comfort, you’ll really be able to stretch out in the new Niro models thanks to their improved size for passengers and cargo.

Eco-Friendly Technology

The three Niro models feature a number of eco-friendly tech features that will make your drive easier and more sustainable. 

  • Green Drive Mode:
    • The EV mode will be engaged in a green zone, which prioritizes fuel efficiency and cuts down on pollution (for HEV and PHEV). On these 2023 models, this system will learn your driving patterns and enact EV mode at crucial points in your drive.
  • Smart Regenerative Braking System:
    • This system controls the level of regeneration thanks to radar and road information, taking in lost energy to transform it into vital battery power. Use adjustable deceleration through strong, moderate or soft modes (new for 2023).
  • Digital Key to Touch:
    • Control you Niro from your smartphone or smartwatch with these features, allowing you to control features like unlock/lock, start and much more.
