Cabin Noise

I found another video of someone accelerating in the Niro and there's a lot of cabin noise at certain speeds even when they were just cruising. Max I usually go is around 110 mph so I'm not sure if the wind noise will be just as prominent at that speed.

I mean km/h... was confused there for a second. It seems to get a lot louder right around 110km/h.

What you're hoping for is complete isolation of the wind noise inside the cabin at high speeds but you'll be hard pressed to find a vehicle that can do that at around 110 km/h.

You don't hear much before you get to that point so I would say the Niro has average noise insulation. Not as bad as what you're thinking.

Oh okay that makes more sense. But I agree, it's not going to be as acoustic sound proofed like a GLC or something, but it won't be that horrendous

I think there's some film you can put on the windshield and even your windows in general that will help cut down on the noise at high speeds. Might be worth looking into. Just make sure if serious about getting it done that you go to a good installer.

Something like this perhaps ? SoundScreenŽ | Acoustic Windshield | Carlite

I assumed the sound would be coming from the seals and not the glass itself. Admittedly, I may have been looking for something that just won't happen at the Niro price point

according to the reviews that are coming out, the Niro is very quite at low speeds and still pretty good with noise reduction on the motorways. Shouldn't be a concern at all unless your Niro was improperly built and sealed.
