In its third year, shortly after receiving some important technological features in 2017, 2019 Kia Niro will soon enter the 2019 model year. With this model still so fresh, we do not expect any major changes. Outside, we do not expect big updates. We anticipate a continuation of its rather traditional style, despite its advanced technology under the hood. We expect a lot of the same inside with the 2019 Kia Niro, keeping the elegant and exclusive cabin that it has since 2017.
Exterior and Interior
When the new 2019 Kia Niro will not undergo a lot of changes. The front fascia is a small expander and the fog light is moved a lot further to the side, just below the headlights. In addition, certain design features such as the plastic wheel arches and the guard plate are modified and give Niro a visual dimension. The exterior is much stronger than the Toyota Prius but mechanically very similar to Hyundai Ionic. If you opt for the first line Touring model, door handles and mirrors are standard. 16 inch wheels are standard and 18 inch alloys are recommended. In addition, the Smooth Black roof rails and the metallic color grille are standard on some top fittings.
The next 2019 Kia Niro stand is probably the best of its kind. The design is simple and complete with high quality components. The controls are now much more intuitive and the comfort is exceptional. The equipment can be changed using a standard shift lever in the console. The USB and power ports are located in a very useful open compartment. The space at the legs and the back is fantastic, and the folding seats further increase the cargo space. Speaking of equipment, finishing Niro FE will never give you more options, so the most recommended setting is Niro LX, LX trim includes a keyless entry and start button, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. However, Lit Glove Box can be a very interesting feature. The infotainment system is a UVO3 and comes with a 7 inch touch screen. The Advanced Tech Package is also available and features such features as a sunroof, heated and ventilated leather seats and a wireless charger. The 2019 Kia Niro safety scores are among the best in their category. In addition, Lane Keeping Assist modifies the Lane Departure Warning System and Blind Spot Detection is now standard. Autonomous braking in case of crisis, intelligent cruise control, precaution in the event of an anticipated collision, electronic stability control, side beam, warning of low tire tension, airbag occupancy indicator, driver airbag, safety camera Rear for children and rearview camera are also in the collection. The new model of the 2019 Kia Niro is fast approaching the market. It can give a lot more features than the first one. The 2019 Kia Niro concept features new and intense front and rear bands and huge wheels of good appearance. This model will be eco-friendly with its electric motor and battery. In addition, the new model will be equipped with a 150 kW electric motor and a 64 kWh battery pack. With this combo, the new model can travel about 100 miles. This range is much better once we evaluate with Hyundai Ionic Electric and Kia Soul EV. The difference between this model and the plugin hybrid model lies in the grid, which is now replaced by an entertaining screen tilted by LED lamps. In addition, it is likely that the new card that adjusts when you touch or gesture is mounted on the screen. Kia plans to launch 16 electric vehicles by 2025. It will also include its first fuel cell electric vehicle by 2020.
For the 2018 model year, the 2019 Kia Niro is equipped with a hybrid engine and a plugin hybrid engine. However, the 2019 Kia Niro will appear for the first time as a fully electric version. So, to start with familiar units: the hybrid engine is a combination of a 1.6 liter engine and an electric motor. The first unit can generate 104 hp and 109 lb-ft of torque, while an electric motor has 43 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. Together, they can do 139 hp and 195 lb / ft of torque. This unit is combined with a 6 speed dual clutch gearbox. The following is a plugin hybrid version. This gives the power of the same 1.6 liter 4 cylinder, a stronger electric motor and a lithium ion battery. The output is the same as in the hybrid variant, but the PHEV can provide a fully electric range of about 26 miles. As for the new 2019 Kia Niro EV, it will be equipped with an electric motor and a lithium ion battery of 64 kWh. This unit will provide a range of up to 238 miles.
Price and Release Date
We expect Kia Niro’s production for 2019 Kia Niro to begin in July 2018 and deliveries will be made shortly thereafter. As a residual model, we expect prices to remain virtually unchanged from the current model. For reference, the 2019 Kia Niro ranges from $ 24,280 to $ 32,940 (destination fees included).
