Kia adds a new edition to its Niro line-up

July 2, 2021

Kia UK Limited has revealed a new special edition version of its best-selling crossover SUV, the Niro. The new Niro ‘Connect’ offers greater value and choice to buyers of the brand’s perennially popular hybrid family SUV, and is available to order from UK dealers now.

The Niro ‘Connect’ is available as both a self-charging Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid, priced from £25,995 and £31,355 respectively.

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 and a Rear console ventilation duct.

The Niro ‘Connect’ also offers a choice of three premium exterior paint colours at no additional cost – Runway Red, Ocean Blue and Steel Grey.

The Kia Niro Hybrid was launched in the UK in 2016 and has 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 CO2emissions 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.

Also kicking off Q3, Kia has announced 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’, exclusive to this version and new to the XCeed range.

The model will sit between the ‘2’ and ‘3’ grade XCeed, and will cost £21,775 – with a 1.0-litre T-GDi powertrain and a six-speed manual transmission.

Both new additions to the Niro and XCeed line-ups are available to order in UK dealerships, with customer deliveries estimated to begin in the coming months.
