The all-new Kia Niro CUV made its North American debut at the New York International Auto Show. The next-generation Niro has been designed from the ground up to meet and exceed the expectations of eco-minded consumers. With striking styling cues and a commitment to sustainability and connectivity throughout, the 2023 Niro will launch in the United States with three highly efficient, electrified powertrains: hybrid electric (HEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and all-electric (EV). Inside and out, the 2023 Niro features bold design inspired by the “Opposites United” philosophy that infuses inspiration from nature with aerodynamic refinement. The exterior of the 2023 Niro embodies a sophisticated and adventurous sense of purpose that takes strong influence from the 2019 HabaNiro concept, and it achieves an impressive drag coefficient (Cd) of 0.29. Its upswept, striking daytime running lights (DRL) flank the signature tiger nose grille, which has evolved with the new Kia brand identity. At the rear, boomerang-shaped LED taillights sit alongside uncomplicated surface treatments for a concise and aerodynamic styling combination, while the heartbeat-shaped rear reflector, rugged looking skid plate garnish and lower bumper enhance the front-end design. Niro HEV and Niro PHEV can be identified by black door cladding and wheel arches, while Niro EV is distinguished by Steel Grey or black exterior trim, depending on body color.

In addition to the exterior makeover, the interior of the C5 Aircross has also been given a more modern look, with improvements in comfort and technology that are apparent as soon as you climb into the car. The C5 Aircross now has a new 10-inch touchscreen that appears to be floating on the dashboard, improving ergonomics by providing direct access to the climate controls and greater readability. The air vents are now below the screen and designed with a new horizontal design. The high and large center console has also been revised and optically tidied up. The new small gear selector switch replaces the previous large gear selector lever on vehicles with automatic transmission, accompanied by the control for selecting the driving mode (electric, hybrid or sport) on the hybrid version. The center console also features a new storage compartment and a second, additional USB port. Customers can choose between the modern standard version and four new Advanced Comfort interior ambiences: Wild Black, Urban Black, Metropolitan Black and Hype Black. The blue visible seams of the five interior ambiences are harmoniously coordinated with the seams of the armrests in the doors and the decorative strips on the dashboard.
