Reviving the dead.

I went out to my Niro4 HEV 2020 on the driveway last evening to go to the local chippy only to find that it didn't respond to my remote key fob. No flashing lights, no opening wing mirrors, no key-less entry to unlock the doors even. NOTHING ! So I took the key out of the key fob and opened the driv...

Re: What the hell is 'ambient lighting' on a Niro 4 HEV ?

On the HEV 4 the ambient lighting when enabled shows up beneath the horizontal silver trim on the dash, however, it has to be fairly dark to see it! Yes, I finally found it - and it really wasn't worth all the effort in doing so ! Ambient Lighting on my Niro4HEV 2020 seems to consist of just a fein...

What the hell is 'ambient lighting' on a Niro 4 HEV ?

I'm still struggling to get this 'ambient lighting' thing to work. I have been into the menu on the central instrument cluster and found ' adjust ambient lighting colour' and also 'adjust ambient lighting brightness'. I have clicked on them both selecting blue and maximum brightness. But nothing hap...

Any E-Niro cars delivered in the UK yet ?

Have any e Niros been delivered in the UK yet ? I haven't seen a single one on the roads yet and there hasn't been any chat on here from people who have already taken delivery.

Weren't the first ones supposed to be available last April ?

Re: New from UK

Congratulations you will not be disappointed. I have had two now and I have been very happy with both. First one was a First Edition in Sept. 2016. Second one is a Niro HEV 4 in Sept. 2019.

Enjoy !

There may be history hidden away somewhere but I haven't found it yet - but I haven't been looking f...

Re: Wireless car play

Hello Paul, I also have a new 2020 Niro4 HEV and I too noticed that when I put my Apple 11 onto the wireless charging pad and it connects to the AV system via Blue Tooth, I can use it hands-free through 'Hey Siri' to play my music, to make calls and to find directions. This is all without connecting...

Re: Niro 4 Hybrid close to perfection - 3 minor dislikes.

If you are talking about a Niro 4 2020 model and you don't like the red illumination across the dash, then why don't you change the colour to one the others that are available in the menu? I also have a 2020 Niro4 HEV. Can you please tell me where I go in the menu to change the colour of the red il...

UVO anyone ?

Has anyone found a really good purpose for UVO on their Niro yet ? I downloaded the App into my iPhone and then paired it up with my new Niro HEV. It took quite am lot of doing, with many attempts to pair sitting in the car, but I got there in the end. Now I am left thinking 'so what' ? It doesn't s...
