As the number of electric car lovers growing around the world, companies every day reveal new special figures of their works. Kia has blossomed with its Niro in UK. This is actually the third plug-in hybrid of this company.
After Kia Optima and Optima Sportwagon by this Korean company, now we can see the Kia Niro. This car has many advantages, from technologies to its design and used materials. All of these little variants, made this crossover adorable. Let’s take a brief survey on its Aces.
First of all, inside this vehicle you would see the gloss black information clusters. These components are the modern theme for Kia. Also, the dashboard with horizontal lines and the display on the top and control panel on the lower space. When it comes to the used materials, we see the soft-touch materials on the touchable surfaces and the hard plastic for the other parts. The steering wheel and gear shifter are dressed with leather. Moreover, mostly black color is seen and, on the door, handles we can see satin chrome.
By the visual and material upgrades that Kia has introduced, some soft-coating and satin chrome highlights are added to the dashboard. The touch screen is larger and for every level of trims, you can choose your desired materials. Inside the Niro, the electric park brake is just in the place of previous foot-operated parking brake, and the emptiness of its place was added to the center console.
In this SUV, battery is located under seats. That means there is a 373-liter extra space. The wheelbase of this vehicle is 2,700 mm and boot expand to 1,371 liters if the rear seats folded. This one can compete with Nissan Qashqai which has 340-liter carrying capacity and 1,598-litre with rear seats folded.
Niro without doubt, is engineered very accurate and this company thought about almost everything. The HVAC system is used to prevent wasting energy. By this system just the side with passengers will be cooled. Although, we can see in other car even the airflow vent is closed but the energy consumption is high.
Other intelligent work on this Kia, is ADAS. That means Standard Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. This long-named system engages with the smart cruise control with start and stop, lane departure, lane keeping assist, blind spot detection and rear cross traffic alert. This one has five-star of crash-test rating by Euro NCAP. Other features on this vehicle are TomTom, wireless smartphone charging, on the latter center console tray and overheating prevent system while you phone is charging. Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and the eight-speaker JBL Premium sound system with 320-watt external amplifier.
