Meet the transmission that raises the bar for how a hybrid should perform. Where many hybrids use a continuously variable transmission (CVT), the Niro features a highly responsive, 6-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) that shifts gears smoothly and quickly. The result is a crisp, exhilarating drive.
Any time you slow down, the regenerative braking system charges Niro up. During deceleration, the electric traction motor captures the kinetic energy to recharge the battery. It’s one of the many energy-smart technologies that help maximize fuel economy.
When you approach, Smart Welcome detects your Smart Key and turns on interior and driver's door pocket light for a well-lit welcome.
Available High-Intensity Discharge (HID), Projector Beam Headlights provide bright, crisp lighting of the road ahead.
The Niro’s Antilock Braking System (ABS) uses electronic sensors to detect when the wheels begin to skid. It then modulates brake force to help reduce skidding, giving you better control.
The Harman/Kardon® premium sound technology transforms the Niro cabin into an astounding sound experience. Clari-Fi™ restoration technology delivers music as it was intended to be heard.
Recharge your smartphone with the ingenuous power of wireless charging. And with multiple ways to power your devices throughout the cabin, the Niro provides convenient charging no matter where you sit.
