The Kia Niro comes in five trims, LX, LXS, LXS SE, Touring SE and EX Premium. The base LX trim has fewer amenities than its siblings but still comes with all the notable features one would expect in a compact car or SUV these days. Standard features include an 8-inch color touch screen display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, steering wheel mounted controls for the sound system and cruise control, two USB input jack, power windows and door locks, keyless entry, dual-zone automatic temperature control, power external mirrors and 16-inch wheels.
The LXS trim primarily adds auto-high beam and a push-button start system. Meanwhile, the LXS SE trim builds on the LXS by offering cloth and leather seating trim, a 10-way power adjustable driver's seat with 2-way power lumbar support and an HD radio. The Touring SE has everything the LXS SE has plus a 10.25-inch voice activated upgraded navigation infotainment, GPS linked cruise control, SiriusXM Traffic and a Harman Kardon sound system,
The top-of-the-line EX Premium trim gets a power sunroof, full leatherette seating, projector beam headlights, wireless phone charger, heated steering wheel and heated/ventilated front seats.
