Even though the Kia Niro is one of the newest models offered on the market, this SUV is being upgraded for the European market for now and will likely be made available on the 2020 version that will arrive in the US later this year. It might seem too early for this SUV to be upgraded, but the fact is, the Niro will be ready to be improved for the next model year. With that in mind, we can get a look at what the Niro in Europe will offer before we see it in the US.
The Style Changes are Complete for Kia
The Kia Niro is the hybrid crossover SUV that has become a huge hit on the market. In an effort to keep it fresh and active, Kia is upgrading the exterior and the interior of this SUV to give you more of what you want. There will also be new tech items offered to make sure you can have the modern items that you want to be included in your new vehicle. This new European version was revealed in all three forms at the Geneva Motor Show to give us an idea of what the new Niro will offer.
Exterior Updates to the 2020 Kia Niro
Upfront, we see a new shape to the headlights and a new bumper with daytime running lights that look like arrows pointing inward. In the rear, the LED taillights are new and the rear bumper is upgraded with a silver faux skid plate. New 16 and 18-inch wheel designs are offered to make this new version of the Niro more interesting to look at. These new wheels bring the hybrid models of the Niro more visually in line with the brand-new Kia Niro EV that’s heading to the market for this year.
Going Inside for More Upgrades to the Niro
This little Kia SUV has upgraded materials used for the dashboard with more soft-touch finishes and gloss-black trim. There will be optional colored trim in either Red-Orange or Plum to give you more of the look you want with great color. There’s also going to be a new 8.0-inch touchscreen that gives you the features you want along with a new optional 10.3-inch screen that brings in new software to give you a much easier place to enjoy the apps and features that you want to use when you drive.
The Upgraded Safety of the 2020 Kia Niro
More changes that you’ll find in the new Kia Niro include an electronic parking brake, larger rear brakes, and paddle shifters for the transmission. Added active safety features include the stop and go capability that’s been added to the adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist. You’re going to be glad to see what this new 2020 Kia Niro will offer you when it’s time for you to have the drive you’re looking for with all of the amazing features that you want to give it the look and the feeling you want every time you get behind the wheel.
