New Kia Niro Hybrid Promo Video

Kia Motors Worldwide has uploaded a new promo video for the Kia Niro on their Youtube channel and it is very well done. Makes me want to buy one right now because it's everything I want it to be.

got to love those rear end shots, it really stands out, even from a distance in some of those shots. Out on the street within the first year of its release it's really going to stand out from the crowd, more than a lot of other vehicles in its segment. Should surprise at a lot of people to the fact its a Kia!

I love every shot and the video has made me realized how much the hood lines makes the headlights look like eyes. And the color stands out too. When it comes out, the Niro will probably have a a few special colors to choose from.

Also, not sure if anyone noticed but when you switch to eco mode, the infotainment screen shows you a tree and the fuel economy above it. That's pretty cool.

Yeah that's an important point... it has character and during these times of design its important to stand out and even more so in a unique way which Kia coming from a bad past, is quite impressive. From lame, boring, and even copy cat designs, to this. Now they just need to keep this up throughout the rest of the line up.

Love the looks and I hadn't seen that color before, it's nice. I talked to a dealer the other day and he said he didn't expect the car until next January. I sure hope it shows up sooner than that. Also, I'm glad it doesn't have a CVT but a DCT instead.

With that being the date you got, chances are we'll see these showing up randomly on streets around late Q4 of this year. Long way to go but it will be worth it, no other car maker has anything even as nice coming out.

I'm expecting it to hit showrooms floors near me early 2017 too. Going to be a long wait but hopefully we'll get more commercials like these to tie us over until then.

For me it will not only be commercials that do that but anything informational they put on like a media event, event for potential owners, etc. It's one of the best things they can do for owners in this segment and for themselves of course, a more engaging experience from the start results in more dollars for them.

Maybe even give us the configuration page soon so we can start planning out what we want to add and what aftermarket things we want to shop for.

That I would love to see, it doesn't even have to be the entire thing. I'd be happy to play around with colors and wheels for now, while waiting for the full configurator to drop
