North Carolina - 2018 Kia Niro's Overview

Exterior Changes – 2018 Kia Niro

The new KIA Niro has been reduced to four trim levels from the original five. With the discontinuation of the Touring Launch Edition, some of the other trims have picked up various features from that vehicle. The 2017 models only came with a few different color options on the EX trim. Instead of seven options on the previous model year, you now have your choice of 18 color options if you go with the EX trim level. All of the other trims feature the same color options, so this is excellent news for those who want a mid-level vehicle in the color that matches their personality. The 2018 EX trim also has the possibility of getting sport black accents, which was previously only available on the Touring Launch Edition. The EX trim also now has the option of going with high-intensity discharge headlights, which were previously only available on the Touring edition. If you like a wider wheel, you can now get the EX trim with 18-inch alloy wheels. This is something that simply wasn’t available in the previous model year.
