Re: ANDROID AUTO™ AND APPLE CARPLAY™ FOR LATEST KIA MODELS

My Niro had the first service today after 15000 km. Navigation software was updated and now also includes Carplay. Works like a charm :-)

Re: When should the gearbox change up to 6th gear

Basically I don't care. As long as the car delivers the fuel economy that I'm expecting (and it very much does!) I don't know and care which motor or gear it is using.

Re: Starting

Same as mine does. I assume it depends on the outside temperature and your climate control settings.

Re: Choosing Bluetooth Audio Track

After connecting it you can select and start any audio track on your phone. From then on you can skip to previous/next track via the car audio system. I don't know if it is possible to transfer the whole folder structure to the cars audio (I have not seen that yet) but it will certainly require that...

Re: Resume cruise control

Now after the first 10000 km with my Niro I have the impression that the Niro's cruise control is more "tolerant" than in other cars. Other cars do everything to stick exactly to the requested speed whereas the Niro controls the engines to be in a range of around +/- 3 km/h of the requested speed. A...

Re: Creaks and groans

I know these "Creeks and Groans" from my Niro and I know them also from other conventional cars I had. It happens when the brakes are not fully enganged and the car is still pushed by some other force. In the Niro it is the force of the electric motor, which still tries to push the car against the h...

Re: Do you want to tow with the Kia Niro?

Re: Fuel consumption

I have my Niro since beginning of March. My observation now after ~7000 km is that the car now switches more easily into EV mode and stays longer in it as in the beginning. I'm now managing to drive at 4.1liters/100 km (68,9 MPG) without problems. That might be caused by the engines and battery bein...
