Kia Niro Exterior Design Rating

2022 Niro Exterior

The Kia Niro carries the typical modern crossover SUV design ethos and features a diamond-patterned grille up front with stylishly designed headlights, and LED daytime running lights in a double-chevron arrangement for an even more contemporary aesthetic. There is a pronounced faux skid plate at the rear, too. From the LXS Special Edition, a power tilt/sliding sunroof is standard and from the Touring Special Edition model onward, front fog lights, LED rear combination lights, and mirror-mounted LED turn signals with power-folding and heated mirrors are standard. Bi-function projection headlights with auto light control are standard on all trims. All models feature a black beltline, wheel arch cladding, and a rear spoiler with a LED high mounted stop lamp. The LX, LXS, LXS Special Edition, and EX Premium all ride atop 16-inch alloy wheels, while the Touring Special Edition rides on larger 18-inch alloy wheels.
