2023 Kia Niro Preview
The automotive world is speeding toward a fossil fuel-free future, but electric vehicles (EVs) won't work for everyone until infrastructure and urban planning catch up. In the meantime, models like the Kia Niro fill the gap with frugal hybrid and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrains. People who have access to chargers and want a battery-electric vehicle (BEV) can have that, too.
Kia's everything-and-the-electric-kitchen-sink approach to the Niro's powertrain offerings doesn't come at the expense of functionality, either, as it delivers reasonable efficiency and good value in all its forms. The crossover enters its second generation for the 2023 model year and gets a fresh design, new tech, and more interior space.
