the 2023 new Niro will be on display at the Seoul Mobility Show from November 25 to December 5.

It will be available with HEV, PHEV and EV powertrains starting from next year.

  • The all-new Kia Niro facilitates another step toward a more sustainable future
  • Refreshed exterior with wide rear pillar, simple lines and transformed tiger face
  • Innovative interior features and sustainable materials
  • 'Greenzone Drive Mode' technology integrates sustainability into daily life

Kia introduces the 'Greenzone Drive Mode' which automatically transfers the (P)HEV into EV drive mode to meet the demand for sustainable mobility solutions. When driving in green zones such as residential areas, or nearby schools and hospitals, the vehicle automatically uses electric power based on navigation cues and driving history data. It also recognizes a driver's favorite places, including home and office registered in the navigation system as a green zone.

More info to come in the next days.!

IF that's the HEV interior I don't see a shifter . I really don't like that we're losing our shifters .

It's OK , I don't like the missing shifter trend one bit . Although I'll have to admit that it's probably more than a trend . I like the way our Niro looks but realize that they need to change . Maybe if they'd promote this car a little better .

It's ok. If I ever got one it would give me warm feelings like when I had my first Plymouth Valiant with the push button transmission LOL.:cool::eek:

I don't care at all for the contrasting color on the body. Personal taste. But the interior looks nice.

Oh yeah. My mom had a '60 Valiant and a '63 Dodge Dart, both with the button shifter. I had a '65 or so Dart once, but I can't remember if it was a button or column shift by then.

After seeing these official Kia pictures as well as videos on YouTube from the Seoul auto show, I'm not a fan (yet) of this new exterior design. Some new details such as the wide rear pillar with contrasting color actually don't bother me that much (they do give the car a more concept-like design). Rather, it's the actual shape of the car? Perhaps the new front grill and lights make it look more boxy than the current/first gen. It kind of looks like a stretched out 2020+ Soul from certain angles. My opinion might change once I actually see these in person, but as of now I still prefer the current gen's looks. Still, curious to hear about the new specs (fuel efficiency/range, interior/cargo space, etc.) once they're released by Kia.

The Koreans have been getting more and more edgy with their designs. Some appeal to me some not so much.

I really like the relatively conservative appearance of the Gen 1 Niro.

The 2023 (Gen 2?) exterior nice in some regards, but the huge C pillar and no sail window suggests very poor rear visibility which is a negative for me. Perhaps Kia's perspective is: "With the side view mirror & rear cameras who needs windows?". Not sure I there yet.

Good point. I used to drive a 2015 Sportage which didn't have rear quarter glass and I did not like the rear visibility. Glad I replaced it with a 2018 Niro. This new Gen 2 looks like a step back in that regard.

Still, that 2nd picture from the top (the one of the white EV), I can't unsee Soul.

Looks good. Tiny center console bin though. And mostly touch buttons. The front vents are centrally located and normally shaped. I don’t like the shape and location on my 2018. They’re small and the air is always going to hit my hands on the wheel.

Love the powered hatch and it looks like back seats might be heated, not important to me but others might like that. Also love that the center of the bottom of the steering wheel is open, the current block is a pain on long trips.

Will have to keep an eye on other cars to see how easy it is to see the low turn signals. My instinct is that I don't like them, but maybe it's just different.

Who was the guy who kept insisting the Niro was going to be discontinued. This should put that thought to rest.
