you can have a bit of fun with the Korean build page until the NA one is out. Choose from a variety of colors and options, maybe even get an idea of which individual feature you think is worth the extra cost.

Cycled through the colors and came across a brown that's similar to what I see on Buicks, looks great on this design. But I might consider blacking out some of the chrome trim, either by tint film or wrapping it in matte black vinyl wrap:



Then there's plasti dip for those wanting an alternative:

I think a similar shade is on the Kia sorento. The brown could looks a bit lighter in real life, like this:


I actually prefer the white paint with black interior trim but it seems like espresso is the number 1 color choice in Korea.

According to the Netherlands walkaround of the Niro, the navigation system is from TomTom and live subscription is usually around 50 euros per year but it's waived for the first year in the Netherlands. We may see something similar on the NA build page.

I still don't understand why Google Maps hasn't been more used throughout the automotive world, it's just about the best mapping system out their. Back when the world wasn't so connected and we didn't rely on the internet as much, tomtom, garmin and similar systems deserved a serious look, now they are taking a dip. Often I find myself using Google maps.

Google maps is more intuitive, easy to use and they're constantly updating the routes to show you where there's high traffic, etc so you can avoid them. This is thanks to the abundance of data Google collects from everyone's mobile devices, a network I don't think TomTom has access to.

I assume it's because auto manufacturers don't want to be too reliant on Google and Apple and share data with the two tech giants.

I've built mine and the only options I would add is the sunroof and maybe those Michelin tires but we may get different optional set once the Niro hits other markets.

The Niro is supposed to hit the Europe market in Q3. Maybe their optional features will be the same but I'm more interested to see the towing package that's set to come out in Q4. It's not listed on the Korean built page yet.

What are you planning to tow with it?

Sometime this year i'll have to start looking into tow packages since we're planning to get a couple See-Doo Spark's and i'm sure the Niro will be able to tow them. With a trailer, it should be well within the towing capacity range.

More cargo for long trips, dirt bikes, atvs, the possibilities are endless.

Interesting to note that the build page shows you the recommended colors, trims, options, etc. This was from google translate so I'm not sure if it's recommended or most popular. the stats may or may not change people's minds when it comes to color if they don't want something that everyone else has.
