Space for a second number on the chassis plate is blank - which I assume means no homologation for towing.
I'm afraid so.

We have spoken to Kia UK Customer Services today and they confirm that there will never be a towing option for the UK Kia Niro. However they stated that if you ONLY wish to use a tow bar for carrying a tow bar mounted bike rack you can get a Niro specific Towbar and 7 pin Electric wiring kit from Germany and if this is fitted by a UK Kia Dealer , at your costs, the warranty will not be affected, UNLESS at some future point you do get a warranty problem that can then be traced back to the towbar/electric fitting !!! We are investigating this further as we have a tow bar bike rack already used on a previous car and wish to take two electric bikes on our holidays !! Has any UK Niro owner had a to bar fitted this year at a KIa dealer in UK. Let us know please. We have had the Niro for 6 months , travelled extensively in UK and Spain Portugal and it's a great car !! MIke
