NEW DESIGN

The new Niro & egrave; was developed according to the design philosophy & quot; Opposites United & quot; by Kia which expects the cars to feature a distinctive and impactful look that reflects the manufacturer's growing focus on electrification. The new crossover has several elements in common with the HabaNiro concept car that Kia had unveiled in 2019 starting with the two-tone bodywork.

The crossover also features a large C-pillar designed to improve airflow and thus aerodynamics. From the front stands the new & quot; tiger face & quot; extending from the hood to the fender. The lights are LED. Behind, however, boomerang-shaped optical groups appear.

Speaking of the interior, Kia highlights the use of sustainable materials . For example, the roof lining is; made with recycled wallpaper. For the seats, however, the Korean manufacturer used bio-polyurethane with Tencel made from eucalyptus leaves. BTX-free paint is used on the door panels to minimize environmental impact and reduce waste.

Inside the cabin stands out also the large panel which contains the instrumentation display and the infotainment display. A solution very similar to that of the Kia EV6. The manufacturer informs that the Plug-in models will be equipped with the & quot; & # 39; Greenzone Drive Mode & quot; function. In practice, it is a system that automatically activates the switch to mode; driving in electric only when necessary. The decision is made based on data from the navigator and the driver's driving history. The car switches to mode EV, for example, in residential areas, in green areas and in all those places where the driver is; I usually only use electric drive.
