Revised versions of the Kia Niro hybrid and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) have appeared at the Geneva motor show, adding greater connectivity and a tweaked exterior design to the crossover.
Both the hybrid and plug-in hybrid Niro receive new front and rear bumpers inspired by the electric e-Niro, with new LED daytime running lights as standard and Kia's 'ice-cube'-styled projection headlights. LED headlights and foglights will be available as options. New paint colours and alloy wheel designs have also been added to the range.
Bigger changes can be found inside, where Kia has upgraded the dashboard with soft-touch materials and added red-orange and plum colour trim packs. The manual handbrake has been replaced by an electronic parking brake and the steering wheel gains paddle shifters to take manual control of the six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
The 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system can now be upgraded to a 10.25in widescreen and the 4.2in instrument cluster can be exchanged for a 7.0in Supervision display. Kia's UVO Connect telematics system has also been added to the range, providing always-connected functionality such as live traffic information, fuel prices and charging station information through an integrated SIM card.
