The Kia Niro has been chased again by our photographers spies in some dynamic tests. The Korean model is in the final stretch of its development and under the thick camouflage is already enjoying a body almost final that will hit the market.
asian brand showed few days ago the first teasers official of the Kia Niro, making it clear that it will follow the new design language of the brand and is inspired by the prototype Kia Niro Concept presented at the iaa in Frankfurt 2013. The front calcará the lines of the Kia Sportage 2016 while the rear part will have its own personality.
For the first time the prototype mounts to the drivers rear of the production version of which signature of light, composed by three groups of LED, it will be very personal and unpublished. This detail of differentiation, among others, will mark the personality of the Niro to make it clear that this is a special model for the hyundai brand. Not in vain, the Niro 2016 involves the entry into a new segment, the crossover urban -mid-way between the Soul and Sportage – and a big bet on a new technology.
the presence of The Golf GTE in the testing makes us suspect that this is the unit of the Niro plug-in hybrid
As we have to count on previous occasions, your range will be composed only and exclusively by release of hybridized. In particular there will be two options available which are set in a hybrid -probably combining a mechanical petrol 1.6 with an electric motor – and an ambitious hybrid version plug-in.
Thus, it is not surprising that during these tests on the road the prototype off with a Volkswagen Golf GTE. Probably the engineers of Kia would build on the data collected with the hybrid plug-in German to compare the information. The presentation of the Niro is expected in the first half of next year and will arrive at dealers in the third quarter of 2016.
