2022 Kia Niro Review

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 five trims starting with the LX and moving through the top-of-the-line EX Premium. The Niro was designed to be everything a typical hybrid isn’t. Its full-parallel hybrid powertrain works seamlessly using gas and electric power to maximize efficiency and get up to 53 miles per gallon—in the city! Outside its slippery shape reduces drag at freeway speeds—while looking decidedly un-hybrid-like. And it gives you plenty of cargo space. Inside smart technology like standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and available DHarmon Kardon premium audio make you feel like you’re in a luxury crossover not a super-efficient hybrid. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a Niro that’s all yours. The Kia Niro. The capability of a crossover with the benefits of hybrid.
Everybody stays connected in your Kia Niro. Standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto bring your compatible smartphone to an eight-inch touchscreen display. SiriusXM satellite radio is available for the latest music news and sports. Available Voice-Command Navigation adds real-time traffic information and a ten-and-a-quarter-inch touchscreen. UVO Link turns your compatible smartphone into a remote control for your Niro. Use Remote Climate Control to warm or cool the cabin before you get in. And with Remote Lock/Unlock you’ll always know your car is secure. The Kia Niro. Connectivity comes standard.
When you think of safety think of the Kia Niro. Be more confident on the road with available Kia Drive Wise Advanced Driver Assistance Systems like Blind-Spot Collision Warning Lane-Keeping Assist and Forward Collision Avoidance Assist. Sick of overriding cruise control when someone’s in front of you? Available Navigation-Based Smart Cruise Control uses navigation and historical data to adapt to speed limits curves and traffic. And you’ll never want to back out of parking spaces or driveways again without available Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning. The Kia Niro. It’s the safer choice.
The Kia Niro’s 1.6-liter Atkinson-cycle gas engine was designed specifically for hybrid use. And mounted between it and your Niro’s hybrid-specific six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is a powerful gas-saving electric motor. Add smart technologies like the Active ECO System and the Regenerative Braking System which captures your kinetic energy when you’re coasting or slowing down and the result is an outstanding 53 miles per gallon—in the city! And it’s fun. Your Niro’s hybrid powertrain puts out a whopping 195 pound-feet of torque for immediate throttle response. The Kia Niro. It’s the un-hybrid hybrid.
