Kia Niro Concept powers into Frankfurt [video]


Previewing a Nissan Juke competitor, the Niro concept is a compact crossover measuring 4185mm in length, 1850mm in width and 1558mm in height. It has a 2590mm wheelbase and rides on 20-inch five-spoke alloys shod in 225/40 R20 tires. The concept adopts a 2+2 seating layout with a 50:50 split rear bench and a large cargo deck which can carry various items.

Under the hood is a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine delivering 160 HP (118 kW) sent to the front axle via a dual-clutch seven-speed gearbox, while the rear wheels are driven by a 45 HP (33 kW) electric motor powered from regenerative braking.

Open the butterfly doors and you notice a flat-bottomed steering wheel wrapped around in leather and with aluminum inserts. The Niro concept comes with an adjustable pedal box and a super-vision digital instrument binnacle which can be configured to display various data. The touch-sensitive panels enable control of the infotainment and computer functions on the center screen which can also show altitude, compass, sat-nav, Bluetooth and entertainment information.
