To me the new logo looks like the old logo after an accident or more likely the "nine inch nails" logo after a serious crash. But I am kind of old too.I don't like the new logo either. I think it's hard to read. The old logo in the black oval you could see KIA easily and make out the name. The new one you have to stare at it to see KIA.
I know who they are, but have never knowingly listened to any of their music. I'm a bit too old for that. I'm more Beach Boys, Cream, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and of course Janis Joplin.I'm afraid I'm going to show my age and why I'm no longer in a demographic companies are looking to....But what's NIN?
Thank you for mentioning this, I have set mine off in the middle of the night far too many times!!!I hated the key fob with my '19 Niro. Never have I had a car with a fob that I had set the alarm off so many times with the fob in my pocket. It looks like the new one would likely eliminate the issue.
My understanding is that it has more airbags, and the transmission is "2nd generation" and gets a wee bit better mileage (1mpg) as a result. I have SmartCruise on my 2019 LX.Just purchased one today in SC and it IS a 2022. There are subtle differences. Mainly the logo and more thing are standard in touring like HDA, Smart Cruise and other features that used to only come with the EX Premium. Our car was an EX Premium. Also the key fob is different teaxture and much heavier / more substantial but has the same button layout. 10.25 inch display still only wired CarPlay (hoping for firmware to enable wireless CarPlay.
On the road but will post pictures and Monrony sticker a bit later.
I do like the new logos.
Exactly! PS in light of the above comments, i think I will go ahead and buy out my 2019 at the end of my lease next month. Trying to figure out if the 2022 I'm looking at is simply a rebadged 2021s is just too annoying.If you give the fob a dirty look, the alarm goes off.
The VIN number would include a code for model year. There are websites that you can enter a VIN and it will kick out all relative data for that specific vehicle.Hey all! A dealership near me just listed a couple of Niros that they’re claiming are 2022s. From the photos on their site, they look identical to the 2021, except for the new Kia badge. I thought that the 2022 was going to be a major redesign, and not coming out for months yet. I also can’t find anything else on the ‘Net about the 2022s being out. Thoughts?

There is a 60 second fix. The fob is a clamshell, pry it apart. Stick something under the alarm button - I used a small piece from a paperclip but almost anything will work. Snap clamshell back together. My alarm hasn't gone off in over two years.If you give the fob a dirty look, the alarm goes off.
