Facelifted Kia Niro PHEV should be even more attractive

Kia presented at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show the updated Niro Plug-in Hybrid (and Niro Hybrid), which is now aligned with the newer all-electric Kia Niro EV.

Slight changes concerns both the exterior and interior (see list of changes here) so don't expect any more EV range from the 8.9 kWh battery, above the 26 miles (42 km), according to EPA.

Below we attached live photos and videos from the Geneva Motor Show.
