New Kia Niro revealed, for launch next year

This is the next generation of the Kia Niro, unveiled at the 2021 Seoul Mobility Show this week, writes Brian Byrne.

Though no technical specifications have been made available, the car will have hybrid, PHEV and electric powertrain options. The interior follows the theme set by the new generation Sportage, and the car will be officially launched next year.

In nods towards sustainability, Kia said the headliner of the interior is made from recycled wallpaper, and the seats from plastics derived from eucalyptus leaves. The paint is water-based.
