Kia has revealed a new special edition version of its best-selling crossover SUV, the Kia Niro.
The new Niro ‘Connect’ provides greater value and choice to buyers of the brand’s ever-popular hybrid family SUV.
The Niro Connect will be available as both a self-charging hybrid and plug-in hybrid.
The limited edition ‘Connect’ model sits between the ‘2’ and ‘3’ grade models in the Niro line-up and adds the following features above the entry-level ‘2’ grade:
- 10.25-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation
- UVO Connect ‘connected car’ system
- Cloth and leather upholstery
- High-gloss centre fascia
- Chrome coated interior and exterior door handles
- USB charger inside the front console
- Rear console ventilation duct
The Niro ‘Connect’ also features a choice of three premium exterior paint colours at no additional cost: Runway Red, Ocean Blue and Steel Grey.
The Kia Niro hybrid was first launched in the UK back in 2016 and has since become an important model in the brand’s UK line-up, contributing significantly to Kia’s record market share, year-to-date.
Thanks to the high fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions from its 1.6-litre hybrid powertrain, the Niro offers low running costs and impeccable green credentials, as well as the practicality and desirability of a crossover SUV.
With hassle-free modern technology, the Niro is easy to drive and offers reassurance to customers thanks to Kia’s industry-leading seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty.
Additionally, Kia has revealed a number of changes to the XCeed model line-up, including the addition of the XCeed ‘Connect’, replacing the ‘Edition’ model.
Benefitting from all the same features as the outgoing Edition, the Connect model upgrades to a 4.2-inch colour supervision cluster, 10.25-inch navigation with UVO Connect and an expanded exterior colour offering.
XCeed Connect will also be available in Fusion Orange, a paint colour exclusive to this version and new to the XCeed range.
The Connect model will sit between the ‘2’ and ‘3’ grade XCeed. It’s set to cost around £21,775 – with a 1.0-litre T-GDi powertrain, and a six-speed manual transmission.
The self-charging Niro Connect and plug-in hybrid Niro Connect will be priced from £25,995 and £31,355 respectively.
Both these new additions to the Niro and XCeed line-ups are available to order now, with customer deliveries estimated to begin in the coming months.
