Kia Reveals The All-New 2023 Niro Crossover

Reveal / Comments

It's definitely got more handsome.

We've known for a while now that the Kia Niro is set to be refreshed with an all-new look, and over the past couple of months, we've seen spy shots of the vehicle in various states of undress. Then yesterday, we finally got an official teaser that revealed the front, rear, and cabin of the crossover. These images told us that the crossover would be getting a much more advanced cabin and fresh new styling cues, but now we get to take them all in properly as Kia has just revealed the all-new Niro at the 2021 Seoul Mobility Show in Korea.

Kia's focus with the new crossover is sustainability. According to Kia president and CEO Ho Sung Song, "the all-new Kia Niro makes it simple to practice a sustainable lifestyle with its eco-friendly materials, advanced technology, and electric powertrains while it also fulfills the practical needs of customers." To achieve this, the Niro has been completely redesigned from the ground up. The 2019 HabaNiro concept helped shape this car's styling, which boasts a wide pillar at the rear designed to enhance airflow for improved aerodynamics. This leads to a rear fascia boasting boomerang-shaped taillights, while the front shows off a new interpretation of the brand's signature 'tiger face' that now incorporates 'heartbeat' LED running lights.

Kia has also added something called 'Greenzone Drive Mode' for better efficiency. This automatically changes the car from plug-in hybrid mode to EV mode. When driving in green zones like residential areas, the Niro uses navigation cues and driving history data to automatically move in a more efficient manner and can recognize a driver's favorite places in which electric driving is usually activated. The aim of sustainability is also evidenced by the fact that recycled materials are used in the cabin, where you'll find a headliner made from recycled wallpaper, seats made from Bio PU with Tencel from eucalyptus leaves, and BTX-free water-based paint for the door panels. This paint has no benzene, toluene, or xylene isomers. Other highlights inside include the dial-type shift lever, offset dash, ambient lighting system, and beautifully styled air vents.

The all-new crossover is on display until December 5th, after which we expect to hear of a US launch date.
