The Kia Niro Redefines What Drivers Expect from Their Hybrids

It seems that lots of car shoppers have a preconceived notion that hybrid models aren’t as capable of delivering thrills as their all-gas counterparts, which couldn't be further from the truth. Advancements in hybrid engines have made them just as fun to drive as any other car while still providing the fuel-savings that have always been present in hybrid cars.

The Kia Niro is perhaps the car that best exemplifies how hybrid engines have changed over the years as it combines the efficiency, an EPA-estimated 52 mpg city, with raw power, 195 pound-feet of torque combined, and a range of other great performance features, like the ridiculously smooth dual-clutch transmission. Plus, it is available as a plug-in hybrid that can go for up to 26 miles on just its electric motor, so you can get around without using any fuel!

A crossover SUV, the Kia Niro is the perfect model for small families that are looking for ways to save money, which you can thank its affordable price for as much as its efficiency, while still having a car that is convenient, inherently fun, and safe. It's the total package for many drivers, and the design aspects, the suite of features, and accolades help prove that.

The 2018 Kia Niro has earned awards such as the 2018 Top Safety Pick+ honor of the IIHS that prove its family-friendly nature, and any driver will enjoy the driver-assist features that made that honor possible. These available features include:

  • Blind-Spot Detection
  • Lane Change Assist
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Lane Keep Assist System
  • Smart Cruise Control

Meanwhile, features from the Smart Key to the available ventilated seats to the UVO system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay make it even more convenient and easier to deal with that dreaded Monday morning commute.
