Following its unveiling at the Geneva International Motor Show in March, KIA announced that the upgraded Niro will be available to purchase in early Summer 2019. Available to choose from two variants, you have the choice of the Self-Charging Hybrid or Plug-in Hybrid.
A number of improvements have been made to the Niro, KIA’s best-selling electrified crossover range of ultra-low emission vehicles.

The upgraded Niro will include:
- Refreshed exterior design in-line with new design language first introduced on e-Niro all-electric crossover
- Fully revamped, high quality, upscale interior
- UVO CONNECT telematics technology and advanced 10.25-inch touchscreen multimedia system
- New high-tech features include Lane Following Assist, Intelligent Speed Limit
- Warning, electronic parking brake and LED headlights
KIA launches innovative UVO CONNECT telematics system
The new Niro is among the first KIA models in Europe to offer the brand’s innovative UVO CONNECT telematics system, connecting drivers to the world around to provide them with invaluable information during a drive.
Accessible via the 10.25-inch touchscreen (standard on grades ‘3’ and ‘4’) and the owner’s smartphone, UVO CONNECT features a new KIA Live system, which uses its own SIM card to retrieve and update live data. This gives owners access to live traffic information, weather forecasts, points of interest, fuel prices, and details of potential on and off-street parking – including price, location and availability.
The second element of the UVO system is the UVO App, designed for compatibility on Android and Apple smartphones. The app offers users peace of mind with a range of features to provide diagnostic data about their car and the trips they take. The app also enables owners to activate a range of remote functions and features remotely.
The 10.25-inch touchscreen navigation system features with Bluetooth® multi-connection as standard, enabling occupants to connect two mobile devices at once, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Its advanced split-screen functionality lets users control or monitor different vehicle features at the same time, customising the screen with a series of different widgets. The driver can now have a single display (such as navigation or powertrain information), or combine numerous elements on-screen at the same time. This means the driver can follow navigation directions or keep track of energy flow through the hybrid powertrain, while passengers can simultaneously choose their favourite songs or check the weather forecast.
