For the first time ever, one innovative vehicle brings together alluring style, perfectly-proportioned utility, sporty driving feel, and high-MPG efficiency in a hybrid-only model. Long-awaited and much-anticipated, the entirely new 2017 Kia Niro is ready to make its thrilling debut.
Every adventure starts from behind the wheel. The all-new Niro combines high style with high functionality, providing a clean, modern cockpit available with the latest tech innovations and advanced safety features. Boasting comfort-focused design and plenty of room for all your gear, the Niro is so inviting, you’ll forget you’re in a hybrid.
A just-right utility vehicle, the Niro delivers generous cargo room, effortless maneuverability, and an elevated stance, while evolving beyond the hulkiness of ordinary utility vehicles. Its sporty driving feel defies hybrid connotations and invites more adventurous journeys.
Kia targets the Niro to have a 50 MPG combined fuel-economy rating when it receives final EPA certification. The Niro's powertrain is highlighted by an all-new, extremely efficient 1.6L Kappa GDI engine and a smooth-transitioning 6-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission that's unheard-of among hybrids. It also features UVO-based telematics that help boost fuel economy via the Predictive-Energy Control and Coasting Guide, as well as lightweight advanced body materials.
