Our crowd favourite is back on our Rent to buy plan with a new design.

The Niro was always a head-turner but it looks like Kia’s design team didn’t settle for that. And boy, are we glad they didn’t—the 2020 facelift has made the Kia Niro more charming than ever. And it’s not just a pretty face either.

The 2020 Kia Niro self-charging hybrid has retained its signature tiger-nose grille, but it has sleek new LED daytime running lights, redesigned halogen headlamps and taillights, and fresh front- and rear bumpers to house it all.

It’s also got the brains to match the looks. Kia has sneaked in a few tech updates to the already impressive range to make driving not only more relaxing but easier on the environment and your wallet too. The 2020 Kia Niro comes with a new electronic parking brake, lane following assist, and smart cruise control with stop-and-go functionality.
