First impressions of the Kia NIRO Hybrid

Kia NIRO SUV Kia has unveiled the first official images of the sporty and versatile NIRO, an all-new Hybrid Utility Vehicle (HUV) that’s set to add a fresh dimension to the global compact SUV market.

The styling of the Niro was led by Kia’s design centers in the United States and Kia’s home country. In keeping up with market trend and contemporary requirements, the Kia NIRO is intended to be a practical and good-looking, aesthetically appealing compact SUV. The soon-to-be-unveiled compact SUV features a sleek, aerodynamic body and subtly sculptured surfaces.

Highlighting the raised rear haunches that endow the NIRO with an athletic stance, the image also reveals high-mounted LED taillights that complement an uncluttered rear end. The slim character line and rear windows emphasize the car’s sleek profile, while allowing greater room for the NIRO’s portruding wheel arches.

The all-new Kia NIRO is the first variant to be based on Kia’s new dedicated eco-car platform, and the HUV is set to achieve a sub-90 g/km CO2 emissions rating (combined, based on the New European Driving Cycle) thanks to its new downsized gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain.
