Kia Niro

Segment: Compact Crossover
NEXT STAGE: Redesign in 2023

The second-generation Kia Niro crossover, available in three electrified variants, will go on sale in the U.S. in summer 2022.

The 2023 Niro, which borros styling cues from the HabaNiro concept revealed in 2019, is larger and the wheelbase expands to 107.1 inches, pushing overall length to 174 inches. Cargo capacity behind the rear seats increases to 22.8 cubic-feet.

The Korean automaker said the all-electric Niro's range increases 14 miles to 253 miles.

The plug-in version of the Niro also gets a boost in all-electric range, up 7 miles to 33 miles, with a larger 11.1 kWh battery (up from 8.9 kWh). The electric motor — paired with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine — is now 62 kW versus 59kW, and combined system output increases from 139 to 180 hp.

The hybrid Niro uses the same engine as the PHEV paired with a 139-hp electric motor. Fuel economy improves slightly, returning 53 mpg in combined driving.
