Eco-Minded 2023 Niro

October 4th, 2022 by

The eco-minded 2023 Niro debuted at the New York Auto Show earlier this year.  The second-generation Niro has been designed from the ground up to meet and exceed the expectations of eco-minded consumers. With striking styling cues and a commitment to sustainability and connectivity throughout, the 2023 Niro offers three highly efficient, electrified powertrains: hybrid electric (HEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV), and all-electric (EV).


2023 Niro

  • Sustainable mobility accessible for everyone: Hybrid (HEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV), and all-electric (EV) variants
  • All-new exterior and interior styling
  • Niro models are larger in every dimension, including class-leading passenger and cargo volume
  • Innovative interior features and sustainable materials
  • Best-in-class 53 MPG for Niro HEV
  • 253 miles of AER and Niro EV: can replenish 10-80% of charge in under 45 minutes

Forward-Looking Interior Design

Complementing the bold exterior of the all-new Niro is an avant-garde interior, styled and upholstered with premium materials and textured surfaces.  The interior of the Niro EV is composed of animal-free textiles, including premium seating surfaces to touchpoints throughout the cabin. The headliner is made of recycled wallpaper and the contemporary seats are covered by high-quality bio polyurethane and Tencel made from eucalyptus leaves.

The off-center dashboard curves with opposing horizontal and diagonal lines.  Available panoramic, dual 10.25-inch screens for the instrument cluster and infotainment system create a powerful, first visual impression, and offer state-of-the-art connectivity. Ambient mood lighting in many color combinations heightens the senses while creating a serene environment. Active Sound Design allows the driver to digitally enhance the engine and motor sounds of the Niro; an eight-speaker Harman/Kardon premium sound system is optional.

Safety Technology

Advanced Driver Assistance Technology (ADAS)  offers class-leading, standard active safety equipment.

Standard, cutting-edge ADAS technology on the 2023 Niro includes:

  • Forward Collision Avoidance (FCA) with Pedestrian detection capability: Warns if there is a risk of a collision with a pedestrian in front of the vehicle while driving and may automatically assist with braking
  • Lane Keeping Assist (LKA): Helps detect lane markings and provides steering inputs to help prevent the vehicle from leaving the lane while driving
  • Lane Following Assist (LFA): Helps detect lane markings and vehicles ahead and provides steering inputs to help center the car in the lane
  • Driver Attention Warning (DAW): Analyzes the driver’s attention level and provide a warning if a break is recommended. It may also provide a leading vehicle departure alert if the leading vehicle departs from a stop and the driver does not react within a certain time period
  • Blind Spot Collision Warning (BCW) with Parallel Exit: May help avoid collisions with rear-side vehicles when exiting a parallel parking spot by automatically assisting with braking
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Avoidance-Assist (RCCA): Helps detect approaching cross traffic when in reverse. When approaching cross traffic is detected, the system alerts the driver and may apply brakes
  • Safe Exit Warning (SEW): Provides a warning when a vehicle is approaching from the rear side while someone is exiting the vehicle
  • Rear Occupant Alert (ROA): Provides a warning to the driver to check the rear seat before exiting the vehicle

The all-new Kia Niro offers three distinct powertrain configurations: the Niro HEV hybrid, the Niro PHEV plug-in hybrid, and the all-electric Niro EV. All Niro models are front-wheel-drive, which provides advantages in adverse weather. A 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is standard in HEV and PHEV.

We expect the Niro Hybrid (HEV) to arrive in Charleston this month. If you’d like more information, please contact us.
