Hybrid Utility Vehicle

Like the Prius and the Honda Insight. The 2017 Kia Niro was designed to be a hybrid from the start. There is no non-hybrid version of this car. What really makes it one of a kind is that it is the first Hybrid Utility Vehicle. Equal care and engineering have been given to its hybrid attributes and its utility specifications. The 2017 Niro sits up high and has plenty of cargo space.

No smug factor

When Hybrids first came out, they were obviously, well, hybrids. That is to say when you drove around you couldn’t help announce to the world that you were eco-friendly. There was a certain smug factor implied with making the better more earth friendly choice. The 2017 Niro is eco-friendly but it isn’t a self-promoter. In other words, you can subtle about its engine. It is considered an un-hybrid, because it looks like a regular cross-over SUV.

Smooth Transmission

The 2017 Kia Niro boasts a dual-clutch automatic transmission. The Gas engine and electric motor work well together. They have smooth transitions and the 4 cyl engine is well insulated to preserve a quiet cabin. Overall noise and vibration have been reduced in this model. There is no constant drone that you might experience in other hybrids.

Fuel Efficiency

Whether we consider ourselves eco-friendly or not, we’d all like to save some money on gas. The 2017 Kia Niro goes a long way to making this happen. The targeted miles per gallon for the 2017 Kia Niro is 50 miles per gallon. Some test drivers have reported back an impressive 64 miles per gallon for highway driving. Why not come in and see for yourself? We’d love to take you for a test drive.
