Aug. 25, 2022

Nexen Tire America Inc.’s N Priz S grand-touring Tire has been selected as original equipment (OE) on the 2023 Kia Niro and 2023 Kia Niro EV models for the U.S. market. 

Kia's compact SUV offering will feature either 205/60R16 or 215/55R17 N Priz S grand touring tires from the factory, depending on selected trim level. 

N Priz S grand-touring tires were chosen by Kia to help Niro deliver “exceptional ride comfort, enhanced fuel economy and everyday safety and reliability” found in grand-touring all-season tires, according to Nexen officials. 

“With the latest addition of more Kia products to our rapidly growing OE supply portfolio, we are continuing to meet our aggressive goal of becoming a global top 10 tire manufacturer by 2025,” says Brian YoonSeok Han, CEO, Nexen Tire.

“As of today, Nexen has supplied its tires to more than 140 OE fitments globally and we will continue to open the door to auto makers who are eager to supply their customers with top-tier tire solutions at an affordable price.”

Nexen Tire currently stocks N Priz S grand-touring tires in both available sizes and plans to increase manufacturing for the all-new 2023 Kia Niro next year.
