(Going to be) New to Kia

Post by JimT » Mon Jul 31, 2017 11:14 pm

Hi everyone,

My wife is a Motability customer and we're going to order our next car in the next couple of weeks for delivery in November. We've decided to go hybrid (after driving a C-Max hybrid in the States) and after testing the ioniq (which was way too low for my wife) we looked at the niro. We went for a test drive in a '3' spec and were so impressed, the search for our next car stopped there.

The car we will order will be the '2' spec but having real difficulty with the colour - neither of us likes the selection on offer. Probably go with the blue but we've had blue cars for the last umpteen years (yawn). Red is a possibility but can't tell whether it's pillar box red or more of a maroon. If the latter then it might be persuasion time.
Previous cars:
Citroen C3 Picasso (auto)
Renault grand scenic 1.5dci on 17" wheels (awful)

Seen it in the red and it looks good
Sorry don't like the blue as unless it's bright
And sunny it looks plan

Thanks Bigtone - I think the same. Working already on getting the red.

Got mine in pearl white - cool in the sun, fairly pretty, is very visible on the road.

Don't have a pic on me, but this one is pretty much exactly how it looks (has a kind of gradient shine to it):

The deed is done! Ordered the Niro 2 in Temptation Red for delivery on 8th November (Motability restrictions). If we had been 'normal' customers we could have had one in 2 days.
