Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

The interior of the Kia Niro EV takes its inspiration from our 2022 Car of the Year, the Kia EV6, which means the design looks smart and modern. However, the quality feels like a definite step down, because there are a lot of hard, scratchy plastics. It's similar to the Volkswagen ID.3 in this respect, although Kia says things might be improved for production models.

By SUV standards, you sit fairly close to the road, although still noticeably higher than in a traditional family hatchback. The driving position is tough to fault in other respects, with plenty of steering wheel and seat adjustment. You get a powered driver’s seat in 3 and 4 trim models, along with adjustable lumbar support.
