Kia Niro 2017 has as classy exterior as the other versions in the lineup. Kia describes the Niro’s styling as a "un-hybrid design". Now coming to front there is a company’s trademark "tiger-nose" grille. There are vertical headlamps angled toward the A-pillars, the vertical vents in the bumper, and the large lower grille, it gives the Niro a sportier, car-like stance. Rear includes high-mounted taillights, the small rear glass, and skinny bumper lights. The new features include the C-shaped LED light cluster, the sporty looking tailgate spoiler, and the body-colored apron with aluminum inserts. Kia with such features introduces the Niro crossover, brilliantly in the market.
