Hybrid Utility Vehicle
Ӓܻ٘ӏ੿
The best of both worlds
Being responsible has never looked this fun – or been more exciting. The new Kia Niro is a game-changing hybrid
crossover that proves you really can have it all. A sustainable, fuel-efficient hybrid, with the style, technology and
versatility of a crossover. It’s the ultimate choice for those who care about the environment – and care just as
much about driving pleasure.
HYBRID UTILITY VEHICLE
Turn the dynamics of
city driving to your advantage
City driving often means dealing with stop-and-go traffic. A hybrid thrives in this environment,
using braking to store power, and starting out without using fuel or generating emissions. As a
result, the spacious and versatile Niro is the ideal urban vehicle. Stylish, comfortable and quiet, it
promotes peace-of-mind by reducing the stress and hassle of urban driving.
An inviting design that
draws on nature
The athletic profile and wide, expansive windows reflect harmony with nature. Sculpted lines
express motion. And its high ground clearance prepares you for adventure. The new Kia Niro is
inspired by the very natural surroundings that its hybrid technology is designed to help protect.
Ingenious silhouette The graceful profile not only contributes to the sporty, muscular appearance, but also gives the Niro a class-leading 0.29 coefficient of drag.
Sustainability has a stylish new look
From every angle, the Niro grabs the eye and sets an intriguing new design benchmark for hybrid vehicles.
It's stylish around town. It's right at home out in the country. And it looks smart everywhere in between.
Striking rear design The rear LED combination lamps, silver garnish and distinctive curves work together to establish an ultra-modern look. Curved body lines
flanking the side windows help to minimize vortex, turbulence and drag, while a rear diffuser helps manage airflow.
Alluring front design The sporty front spoiler sets an energetic tone. A vertical air vent helps improve
aerodynamic stability. And stylish silver garnish on the lower bumper complements the silver of the grille,
headlamp surrounds and wheels, giving the Niro its signature style.
DRIVING IN HARMONY
WITH ECOLOGICAL IDEALS
Eco-friendly driving
powered by two hearts
Driving a hybrid is a way to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, save on fuel costs, and
significantly decrease carbon emissions. The lightweight and dynamic Niro allows you to enjoy
exploring your natural surroundings, and help protect them in the process.
The Niro employs a parallel hybrid system that switches between gasoline and electric
power, or uses a combination of both, and charges the battery whenever it can. The
system is seamless and responsive while achieving class-leading efficiency. CO 2
emissions are inspiringly low at 88 g/km.
Sculpted and streamlined
Beauty with a purpose
The true beauty of the Niro’s aerodynamic design is in the way it rolls and
the way it slices through the air squeezing out extra milage.
New Kappa 1.6 GDi engine
This 1.6 GDi engine generates maximum
output of 105 ps at 5,700 rpm and peak
torque of 15.0 kg·m at 4,000 rpm – the
perfect match for the Niro’s hybrid
system. All told, the system offers a
combined maximum output of 141 ps.

system that incrementally lowers the heating of the front-passenger seat over time to help protect children and
the elderly from potential burns. The Niro is designed to get you to your destination safely and feeling refreshed.
A roomier, more versatile
approach to hybrid life
The Kia Niro keeps your options wide open with plenty of space – and clever ways to configure
it. The generous interior dimensions give both you and your passengers plenty of headroom
and legroom, while a sizable cargo space takes care of all your luggage. The versatile rear
seats split 60:40 and fold flat to give you maximum flexibility.
Fully folding, split rear seats The rear seatbacks split 60:40 and fold completely flat for maximum cargo capacity and
flexibility. Take advantage of all the choices to accommodate more combinations of passengers and cargo. Because the
seatbacks fold flat, the cargo area can accommodate large boxes or a stack of flat items.
