Refreshed 2020 Niro Hybrid
  • New headlights, grille and wheels highlight exterior changes
  • More Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and added tech upgrades

TORONTO, Feb. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today Kia Canada Inc. (KCI) unveiled the enhanced Niro Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid. The popular and award-winning compact crossover receives several exterior enhancements for its mid-cycle refresh, including available LED headlights and fog lamps, a new diamond-pattern grille and dual chevron-shaped LED daytime running lights. The rear faux skid plate is wider and more pronounced, the available rear LED combination lights have more technological appeal than previous, and there are new 16-inch and 18-inch alloy wheel designs.

“We’ve incorporated modern design elements to elevate Niro’s uniqueness, most noticeably the chevron-shaped LED lights that make for a ‘surprising’ feature not typically seen on most vehicles,” said Michael Kopke, Director of Marketing at KCI.”

Inside, the new Niro display is more streamlined, incorporating an available re-styled 7-inch instrument cluster with improved drive mode graphics and standard 8-inch touchscreen display, or optional navigation with a 10.25-inch screen and Harman/Kardon premium audio system, all with the easy to use interface Kia is famous for. Optional electronic parking brake and available mood lighting with six different colours wrap up the interior mods.

Enhancing the Niro’s full suite of available Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are newly added Lane Following & Lane Keeping Assist and High Beam Assist all of which were introduced earlier on other Kia models and now make their way to the 2020 Niro line up.

Powertrain and exterior and interior dimensions and capacities are unchanged from the previous model. This means that the Niro Hybrid’s leading fuel economy of 4.7 L/100kms combined continues and that the liberating 42 kilometres of all-electric range on the Niro PHEV will keep your time between fill-ups at the gas station to a minimum.

Both the 2020 Niro Hybrid (HEV) and 2020 Niro Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) are arriving at Kia dealerships now and are on sale and ready to be experienced.

Safety is always a priority. With that in mind, the all-new Kia Seltos comes equipped with an abundance of passive and active tech, to help you stay safe and connected on the road. The standard Blind Spot Detection Warning system keeps you safe from the things you can’t see while driving and paired with the Rear-Cross Traffic Alert and rearview Camera it helps alleviate rear blind spots to make parking much safer.

Distinctive Design

Similar to the Telluride’s design theme, the Seltos is a marriage of bold design and delicate details and stands apart from rivals with its strong, upright stance. The tall front end and up to 7.2-inch ground clearance translate to a tough attitude and an adventurous spirit. Its assertive presence is spearheaded by Kia’s signature tiger-nose grille that includes unexpected diamond-like detail. Chiselled surfaces and well-drawn lines lead back to a distinctive profile.

In terms of comfort and space, the Seltos is actually one of the larger vehicles in the Entry SUV segment. The overall length of 4,370 mm, height of 1,615 mm, and a 2,630 mm wheelbase help to generate one of the best interior packages in its niche.
