The LX HEV ($29,995) includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and offers driver aids like blind-spot collision avoidance. An upgrade to the EX, starting at $31,995, unlocks Kia Connect, wireless charging, and you get a 10.25 in-dash infotainment screen. Another price increase gets you the premium EX option ($34,695) which includes a power tailgate and sunroof. The top-of-the-line SX model ($38,695) comes with all of the above, plus premium Harmon Kardon speakers, a head-up display, and a two-touch digital key — a feature that lets you unlock your car with your smartphone.

The second variant offered for the 2023 Niro is the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). Unlike the HEV option, the 2023 Niro PHEV EX stands alone in the PHEV class with a starting price of $37,995. However, it offers many of the same features as the HEV EX, including Kia Connect, wireless charging, and more.

In April, Kia unveiled the next-generation SUV at the New York Auto Show confirming all three electric powertrains. The hybrid houses a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with electric motor, developing 139 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The PHEV pairs this hybrid engine with a 62 kW electric motor that develops 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The PHEV Niro has an estimated range of 53 km on a full charge. The Niro EV uses a 64.8 kWh battery and 150 kW (201 horsepower) electric motor, and has an estimated range of 407 km on one charge.

Buyers can expect a wide array of safety features, including highway driving assist, rear occupant alert, and blind-spot collision-avoidance assist. It also has rear cross-traffic assist and forward collision avoidance, with cornering at intersections.

The 2023 Kia Niro is the fourth vehicle launched by the automaker under its Plan S strategy – a brand commitment to offer 11 electric vehicles (EVs) by 2025. All three versions of the 2023 Kia Niro will be available at Canadian dealers in the spring of 2023.
