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

Post by HaxbyPete » Wed Dec 04, 2019 3:35 pm

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 happened !

The buttons and switches are still back-lit in red and I don't see any other lights which have changed to blue anywhere in the car. Am I looking for the wrong thing ?

I have been onto KIA and they confirm that my 2020 Niro4 HEV comes with Ambient Lighting as part of the spec. My local dealer has also taken a look, can't work it out and has promised to come back to me when he has checked with KIA UK. But that was a week ago now and still no info !

So, if you have enabled 'ambient lighting' on your HEV will you please tell me what and where it is so I can join in the enjoyment of this feature.

Thanks.

Ambient lighting usually refers to subtle led lights in the footwells, internal door handles, around the roof control panels etc. I had this on my Ford Focus Titanium X, but haven't seen it on the Niro.

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!
