High beam assist

Post by melymalu » Tue Feb 26, 2019 2:08 pm

Hi
I am about to take delivery of the Niro 3. Does anyone know if it has high beam assist? My current Nissan does and I find it very handy.

Sorry, but no - at least not on the PHEV Niro which is the "3". At the other end of those headlights though it does have automatic dimming for the rear view mirror which is handy when someone drives up behind you with their main beams still on! :-)

Ah ok. A feature missed in my view by Kia as it is very useful

No the Niro 4 dosn't have High Beam Assist, something that I would find helpful having driven a Citroen with it before purchasing my Niro. My other gripe with the car is that the software should be updated so that the digital speedo can display kph and not just mph. Very useful if you take the car abroad and availabe on other Kia models in the UK.

Good point, crazy we can't have Kph, but we can get economy in US gallons!!!

It probably won't make you feel any better, but I can't get mph on mine! At least most UK-sold cars have a nod to kph around the inside of the speedometer, the reverse is missing on cars sold on "the continent".

I had a Qashqai before my Niro4, and to be honest I gave up using the high beam assist. So often it would fail to dip fast enough and I would be scrambling for the manual dip. It was particularly useless on hills and corners. With the Niro I know where I am.
