KIA Niro: Towing service

Towing service

  1. Wheel dolly
  • Proper lifting and towing procedures are necessary to prevent damage to the vehicle. The use of wheel dolly (1) or flatbed is recommended.
  • On 2WD vehicles, it is acceptable to tow the vehicle with the rear wheels on the ground (without dollies) and the front wheels off the ground.


If emergency towing is necessary, we recommend having it done by an authorized Kia dealer or a commercial towtruck service.


  • Do not tow the vehicle forwards with the front wheels on the ground as this may cause damage to the vehicle.
  • Do not tow with sling-type equipment.

    Use wheel lift or flatbed equipment.
