The Kia Niro SUV is getting a new look and is expected for a full reveal at the 2021 Seoul Mobility Show on November 25th.

In a short teaser video, the new Niro appeared as a silhouette bookended by sharp, angular lights front and rear. In a set of promo images, the exterior rendering was sparsely lit up by ambient reflections; the sharpened-theme of the lights was mirrored through the lines of the body.

In the same album, the interior was also presented, albeit largely concealed by shadows. The standout feature was the dashboard-- a large, singular display starts at the instrument panel and extends out towards the center stack; a single-hump peaks at the driver’s side and gently slopes towards the passenger door.

This lines up with Kia’s accompanying press; the all-new Niro is said to place sustainability and an “Opposites United” design philosophy (used on the recent EV6) at the forefront of the it's reimagining. The crossover takes inspiration from the natural world, reflected by its design and eco-friendly construction. As such, Kia promises a vehicle that “appeals to the complex needs of sustainability-conscious consumers.”

The new Niro is to borrow and expand upon some of the bold designs from the HabaNiro Concept, which Kia revealed at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. Some of these shared elements include a two tone body on the outside and an asymmetrical dashboard on the inside (lining up with the aforementioned teaser images). 

At the time, the HabaNiro Concept boasted 300+ miles of all-electric range, though Kia did not announce what the new Niro will be powered by. The current 2022 Kia Niro offers a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine and hybrid powertrain, reaching an EPA-estimated 49 MPG combined.
