Re: Foot Parking Brake

I got used to the foot brake - its not much of a hassle.

I see that the new e-Niro has an electric brake.

Re: Economy??

I am a Niro 4 owner too. Had the car since June last year. In the summer months, my car averaged around 55 mpg. But since the cold weather set in, it dropped to mid 30 mpg.

Is everyone else experiencing similar drop in mpg in the colder weather?

Re: Rear door

Not seen this issue with my Niro 4. I still wish we had a powered tailgate though.

What mpg are you getting?
The first drive from dealership to home, showed 67 mpg, and that was a 12 mile trip.

After 200 miles of mostly in-town driving, as per the car, its averaging 55 mpg. If that continues, the car should do 540+ miles per tank.

What's everyone else getting?

Re: Chrome Delete

I am interested in doing this for the door handles, but am a complete newbie to this sort of thing. Can you provide any more info, on how to get this done?

Re: Lead time/waiting time

Ordered my Niro 4, with 16" wheels, back in Feb. After some four months, picked it up last week.

Car feels solid, and everything works as advertised. Enjoying driving my first hybrid car. Its very quiet when running on battery, and the mpg readouts on the display always bring me a smile.

Re: Niro and snow

Thanks both. Where are the lane assist and automonous emergency braking sensors? Sorry, haven't got the car yet.

Niro and snow

Hi all, I am waiting for my Niro 4, ordered in early Feb. Just curious how the Niro owners got on with driving in the cold and snowy conditions created recently by the Beast from the East 1 and 2. I have plenty of experience driving in the snow with my current manual car and it handles without any i...

Re: Looking to buy a Kia Niro 4

Thanks both. Will be waiting for the early summer then.

Is there a way to track the order online, like we could with some manufacturers? If not, I'll simply be calling the dealer once in a while to check on the order.

Re: Looking to buy a Kia Niro 4

Went for a test drive. Liked the car. Ordered a Niro 4 (Factory order) in Rich Espresso (Standard colour). Anyone owns a Niro in this colour? Or has anyone got a link to some real world pictures of Niro in this colour? Dealer says we have to wait 3 to 4 months for delivery. Is that your experience t...
