2023 Kia Niro Hybrid Specs Revealed!

2023 Kia Niro Hybrid Overview

These days, the redesigned Kia Niro isn’t exactly hiding. After all, it was unveiled to the public in November 2021, albeit Kia took a few months longer to provide vehicle specifications.

Furthermore, the unveiling took place in South Korea; a similar event for the US market has yet to occur.

The Kia Niro will be available in hybrid, plug-in, and electric versions in 2023, with the conventional hybrid the first to arrive.

Kia has released further details about the second-generation Niro, which was unveiled late last year.

The Kia Niro will be available in hybrid, plug-in, and electric versions in 2023, with the conventional hybrid the first to arrive.

Here are the major highlights of the 2023 Kia Niro Hybrid:

  • It will be powered by a 1.6-liter gas four-cylinder engine that produces 139 horsepower. EV and plug-in hybrid vehicles will follow.
  • The Niro hybrid is expected to hit the market later this year in the United States.

Design & Aesthetic

This sighting is from California, close to Kia’s design headquarters, and it’s thought to be a US-spec vehicle.

That said, don’t expect any significant visual or functional differences.

On the outside, we see the same intense style, albeit there is a prominent amber reflector in the corner of the headlight housing if you look closely.

With a longer wheelbase, broader body, and a 2.5-inch longer body than the previous model, the 2023 Niro could provide more outstanding passenger and baggage capacity. Its styling is inspired mainly by the HabaNiro concept car. In addition, it will come with various trim options:

  • Eight exterior colors
  • 6 different color options for the contrasting C-pillar trim
  • Three trim options for the body cladding

As we can see, there’s a second set of lights down low in the rear bumper that aren’t the reverse lights. The red parts are reflectors, but a strip of amber LEDs comes to life for turn signals.

The signals appear to be only down low, with the boomerangs reserved for taillights and brake lights. Let’s hope that low-mount turn signals are still visible from a safe distance for drivers in higher-riding vehicles.

Like many other new Kia models, the Niro has a 10.3-inch touchscreen and a digital gauge cluster on the inside.

In addition, the Niro hybrid models now come with a rotary shift knob, which was previously only available on the Niro EV.

Engine Specifications

A 1.6-liter inline-four gasoline engine, an electric motor, and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission will provide more power to the Niro hybrid.

However, Kia claims that the overall output will be 139 horsepower, the same as before and that it will only be available in front-wheel drive.

The plug-in hybrid and electric versions haven’t been revealed yet, but they’ll certainly have more powerful electric motors and larger battery packs.

Launch Date

The Niro is initially set to sell in Korea, with other markets following later. We expect Kia to give additional US-specific details in the first quarter of 2022, with the vehicle launching later for the 2023 model year.

How reliable is the Kia Niro hybrid?

In its 2018 study, Consumer Reports ranked the Kia Niro the most dependable vehicle. J.D. Power also gave the 2019 Kia Niro a 78/100 reliability rating. The Niro from Kia is a fuel-efficient vehicle. According to Consumer Reports, the car can travel 43 miles on a gallon of gas (43mpg). 5 July 2021
