The improved Kia Niro Hybrid brings styling, safety and technological updates that keep it in-line with its all electric sibling, the Kia Niro EV.
Cycle & Carriage Kia have announced the launch of the improved Kia Niro Hybrid crossover, bringing a host of enhancements and refreshing Kia's commitment towards a sustainable future with its development of eco and electric vehicle.
The improved Kia Niro Hybrid brings styling, safety and technology updates that keeps it in line with its all electric sibling, the Niro Electric. In addition to the all-round enhancements, the Kia Niro Hybrid will be reclassified as a COE Category A vehicle, making it even more competitively priced and appealing in the current hybrid segment.
Boasting an impressive 25km/L fuel consumption, the 1.6-litre 'Kappa' GDI engine produces a total output of 130bhp and 170Nm of torque.
On the inside, the top of the dashboard now features a soft-touch coating and new gloss black and satin chrome details. The redesigned centre console creates more storage space at the base of the dashboard and now includes a wireless smartphone charging pad.
Within the dashboard sits the all new 8.0-inch LCD touchscreen infotainment system that comes equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Drivers will also enjoy the new ventilated front seats, which offer a cool and refreshing drive in Singapore's tropical climate.
Retaining the futuristic and aerodynamic 'tiger-nose' grille, exterior changes as part of the Kia Niro Hybrid's facelift consist of restyled front and rear bumpers, LED headlamps and tail lamps as well as LED daytime running lights in a double-arrow layout.
There are also updates to the Kia Niro's existing safety technology. The model now comes with driver-assisted safety features such as Lane Keeping Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Vehicle Stability Management.
The improved Kia Niro Hybrid will debut at Cars@Expo on 5 and 6 October 2019. Cycle & Carriage also offers a 10-year lithium battery warranty to give drivers an additional peace of mind.
In conjunction with Kia's Year End Spree, customers who book a Kia Niro can receive $2,500 credits to build their customised gift package with accessories, vouchers and more.
