2023 Kia Niro: official photos…

Last Updated:

This looks like another home run from Kia. The new 2023 Kia Niro looks great so far. In my opinion, much better than the new Sportage.

There is a bit of the EV6 inside. But overall, it is an original design.

The exterior is daring without being too weird. So far this is just really nice…

At least in its home market, the new Niro is, just like the first generation, available as a Hybrid, PHEV, or EV. We will have to wait and see if all three will make it to the US in a few months.

  1. "Without being too weird." You do see the VERY weird dark vertical area that runs from the rear wheel well up the full width of the C-pillar to the roof. That is just about the weirdest styling element I have EVER seen on any vehicle. I don't especially like it. Everything else, besides the steering wheel looks great. The front design is much better than the Sportage.


    This greenhouse looks amazing!!! Unlike the CX-50 greenhouse that is a clone off the 2014 Subaru hatchback. Why would a designer want to use an already used up 7 years ago greenhouse? That Makes it age in 8 months. The Niro's greenhouse is future.

    The Sportage greenhouse also is future proof that can last for several years.

    Telluride's greenhouse is older than the new Pathfinder's greenhouse yet the Nissan 's greenhouse is aging faster than the Telluride's.

    Anyway the Niro's greenhouse is amazing because of that C Pillar with a different color than the rest of the body. It makes it stand out from the side. That is one hell of a earth shattering Greenhouse. I'm so glad Kia changed the greenhouse from the 1st generation and didnt do what they did with the 3rd and 4th generation Sportage and just change the front and back ends and leaving the greenhouse alone. Yes every generation model needs to change the greenhouse. If the greenhouse is the same it's a facelift not a redesign!

    P.S. with the Kia EV6 New EV Niro and Ionic 5 coming out US soon Tesla needs redesign their greenhouses and fast. Pretty soon when the Kia EV line up is unveiled in the next coming years Tesla will still have those same aged greenhouses.

  4. looks like it got in an accident, someone pulled the c pillar from another niro in the scrapyard, and they never got around to repainting it. womp womp.

  5. Really nice design and killer interior, but…

    That colored rear panel is just stupid. And the rear bumper comes all the way up to the back glass. No. Just no.

  6. That C pillar kills this… oh so close. Predict a quick redesign 1 or 2 years in to black it out above the belt line and body color below.

  7. I give Kia credit for trying new design ideas, but I'd only buy this in black to hide all the weird black pieces.😳

  8. (The Greenhouse MAN)
    Then settle for the 2022 Mazda CX-50 that that has a greenhouse from a 2014 Subaru hatchback. While I'll be a a all new car with a different greenhouse and not something used up from 7 years ago.
