2022 Kia Niro





'Kia has confirmed that the new arrival, like the current car, will be offered with hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure-electric powertrains, although the Mk2 e-Niro will remain separate from the firm’s line of ‘EV’-badged bespoke electric cars and will not use the E-GMP platform reserved for those models.'
'The 1.6-litre petrol engine currently used in combustion-powered Niro variants is also likely to be carried over but is unlikely to be boosted to give the same 261bhp combined output as the new Sportage PHEV. '

It's rather overdesigned.

What's the rear quarter design all about? Why's that a different colour to the rest of the body? Weird - as mentioned above it seems to be just a bit of design for the sake of it.

I suppose in a world of increasingly bland and similar 3/4/5 door electric boxes from the multi-brand manufacturers , it's going to be the style tweeks that differentiate.

The 2019 HabaNiro concept showed us glimpses of this direction in styling. I guess the feedback indicated a positive reception to the contrasting panel(s)?

It's a bold move to keep making station wagons.

They are still quite popular in the UK, and nowadays most UK police forces use them extensively for their road policing fleets, Most popular for them, it seems, are BMW Tourers and the hot versions of the Tourers from Skoda especially for their dog patrol vehicles. Also seen some from Ford as well as Volvo.
