Details of new Kia Niro revealed

Date: 18 January 2022   |   Author: Sean Keywood

Kia has announced details of the new, second-generation version of its Niro crossover.

As with the previous model, the new Niro - first unveiled later last year - will be available as a conventional hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and pure EV, but only the conventional hybrid model has been revealed for now, with the other powertrains to follow at a later date.

The hybrid powertrain features a 1.6-litre, 105hp petrol engine, which is paired with an electric motor for a combined maximum output of 141hp.

Compared with the first-generation Niro, the new model is 65mm longer, 20mm wider, 10mm taller, and has a 20mm longer wheelbase, while a boot capacity of 451 litres is a 15-litre increase. 

The interior features a panoramic HD screen integrating both the instrument cluster and infotainment features.

Safety systems include forward collision avoidance assist with junction turning and crossing functions and pedestrian and cyclist detection.

The new Niro will go on sale in Kia's home market of Korea later this month, with a global market launch to follow later this year.
