Kia unveils the updated Niro hybrid crossover. The public debut of the novelty will take place at the Geneva Motor Show. Also on the motor show will be shown a hybrid with the possibility of charging from an external source Niro Plug-in Hybrid. According to the press service of the Korean brand, car sales in Europe will start in the second quarter of 2019.

The restyled Niro comes with a 1.6-liter T-GDi engine with direct fuel injection. Together with the engine, a lithium-ion polymer battery (on hybrid versions) works with an energy reserve of 1.56 kWh (for Niro Hybrid) or 8.9 kWh (for Niro Plug-in Hybrid). Power reserve on one electric in Niro Plug-in Hybrid in the city is up to 65 kilometers.

The updated crossover has received a brand-name tiger-nose grille, new bumpers and LED optics. A 10-inch widescreen LCD display and a 7-inch TFT dashboard screen are installed inside the car. Also restyled Niro received a traction coupling device that allows you to tow a trailer weighing up to 1300 kilograms.

Another Kia premiere in Geneva will be a concept that will demonstrate the future of the electric car brand. The press service said that a fully electric four-door car does not comply with the traditional framework of classification of cars. The company said that the model will combine the elements of a sports car, sedan and crossover.
