2019 Kia Niro Review

Overview
Get the best of both worlds—and save the one you’re on at the same time. The Kia Niro combines the convenience of a crossover with the technology and gas mileage of a hybrid. Choose from four models starting with the FE and moving up to the top-of-the-line Touring. ?The Niro was designed to be everything a typical hybrid isn’t. Its full-parallel hybrid powertrain works seamlessly changing from gas to electric power to maximize efficiency—or using both if that’s what you need. ?Outside its slippery shape reduces drag at freeway speeds—while looking decidedly un-hybrid-like. ?Inside smart technology like available voice-command navigation and Harmon Kardon premium audio make you feel like you’re in a luxury crossover not a super-efficient hybrid. ?And with Kia’s industry-leading warranty program you’ll drive your un-hybrid hybrid for a long long time. A variety of colors trims and options means you can build a Niro that’s all yours. The Kia Niro. The capability of a crossover with the benefits of hybrid.
Technology
Everybody stays connected in your Kia Niro. Manage your music make phone calls get directions and more with Kia’s UVO connectivity system. It comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration and every Niro comes with Sirius satellite radio++ and Bluetooth wireless technology=. Navigation is available and comes with an eight-inch touchscreen and real-time traffic info. Download the free UVO eServices app and use your smartphone to access your Niro. Contact roadside assistance find your car in a parking lot== and more. The Kia Niro. Connectivity comes standard.
Safety
When you think of safety think of the Kia Niro. Be more confident on the road with Kia Drive Wise. Blind-Spot Detection Lane-Keep Assist Forward Collision Warning—these are just a few of the driver-assist features available. Sick of overriding cruise control when someone’s in front of you? Available Smart Cruise Control uses radar to track your speed to the vehicle ahead. And don’t ever back out of a parking space or driveway again without the Niro’s available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. The Kia Niro. It’s the safer choice.
Performance
The Kia Niro’s 1.6-liter Atkinson-cycle gas engine was designed specifically for hybrid use. And between it and Kia’s hybrid-specific six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is a powerful gas-saving electric motor. Add smart technology like the available Eco Driving Assistance System1 and grille shutters that close at highway speeds for better aerodynamics and the result is an outstanding 52 miles per gallon—in the city! And it’s fun. Your Niro’s hybrid powertrain puts out a whopping 195 pound-feet of torque5 for immediate throttle response. The Kia Niro. It’s the un-hybrid.
