Kia Niro Accessories

You can get Kia Australia to fit a factory-backed wallbox charger for your home or office if you choose the PHEV or EV models. It costs $2830, but will save you time when it comes to charging.

Kia Niro Interior

The interior of the Kia Niro is conventional, so if you like the idea of a futuristic car with a cutting edge interior, you might be a little disappointed.

But it is a pretty spacious cabin, with the HEV and PHEV models offering good leg, toe and headroom in the second row. The EV model has a higher floor so feels more compact inside.

But the Niro EV has a bigger boot because it doesn't have any batteries under there (they're under the passenger floor instead). While the HEV has its battery pack under the rear seat, and the PHEV suffers the most because its batteries are under the rear seat and the boot floor. That means it has the smallest boot.

Oddly, some Niro models have a turnkey ignition, and none have a full-digital instrument cluster. There's an 8.0-inch touchscreen in the base grade S, and a 10.25-inch unit in the Sport top-spec model.

Kia Niro Boot Space

The boot space varies depending on the powertrain. That's because the batteries for the EV are under the passenger floor, while in the HEV they're under the back seat, and in the PHEV they're under the back seat and the boot floor.

As a result, the PHEV has the smallest cargo capacity, at 324 litres (VDA) with five seats in place. The HEV is the next largest, at 410L VDA, while the EV model offers 451L VDA of cargo space with all seats up.

Drop the seats and you have 1322L (VDA) for the PHEV, 1405L (VDA) for the EV and 1408L (VDA) for the HEV.

You need to know that the PHEV and EV models don't come with any form of spare tyre - they have a repair kit and tyre pressure monitoring fitted. The HEV models have a space-saver spare wheel.

Kia Niro Seats

There are five seats in all versions of the Kia Niro. But interestingly the space in all three grades isn't identical. That comes down to the fact the EV model has a higher floor, meaning less toe room, less rear kneeroom, and less headroom front and rear, too.

Kia Niro Speed

There is no claimed 0-100km/h speed for any model in the Niro range, but we'd reckon the Niro EV must do it less than six seconds - it's pretty darn quick. The HEV and PHEV? Closer to double that.
