Having read all the comments about the cr@p headlights on Niro, I will NOT be buying unless I can get LEDs.

Im pretty sure leds will be option across the niro range or is it a ploy for customers to stay away from ev option so they can sell more ice vehicles i wonder sometimes 🤔

I can’t say I’m sure about some of the styling elements, but at least they have addressed three of my main bugbears (active cruise control not doing stop-start, parking brake, headlights) and added in something that I felt should have been included within the safety pack (blind spot warning).

PHEV is looking like it might be an attractive option for me when my current lease expires in a couple of years time - and by then, Kia might have got the lead times down a bit!!

Actually, on a second read through - Seboni is correct, it is phrased in such a way that LED headlights might not be specable as an option PHEV?

I have just checked the full specs list and I'm confused. Does anyone know if the PHEV that is currently reported in docs & car configurator is the version being available for order up to Q1 2020, or it's a sort of old one to be upgraded soon?
A bit disappointed: No 7'' cluster, no sun roof, no 18'' or 17'' wheels, no Ventilated Front Seats, no Heated Outer Rear Seats, no Engine Start/Stop Button with Smart Entry System, no led interior lighting, no 7" Full TFT LCD Colour Display Cluster...

Final question: please does anyone know if the "Intelligent Speed Limit Warning (ISLW)" is the road signs-related feature?

Think the islw is programmed in with the satellite navigation gps speed restriction areas and will not see signs and lights like the Tesla
