What Is the 2019 Kia Niro?
The Kia Niro is a compact hatchback with room for up to five people. It’s offered with a choice of a hybrid drivetrain, a plug-in hybrid drivetrain or an all-electric drivetrain. All models have front-wheel drive, and competitors include the Toyota Prius and Hyundai Ioniq.
What’s New on the 2019 Kia Niro?
The new all-electric Niro EV has an EPA-estimated driving range of 239 miles on a charge.
What Features in the 2019 Kia Niro Are Most Important?
The Niro drives more like a conventionally powered car than a traditional hybrid thanks to its six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which it uses instead of a continuously variable automatic transmission. Standard features include a 60/40-split folding backseat, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, and cruise control. Available active safety features include blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control.
Should I Buy the 2019 Kia Niro?
The Niro offers respectable hybrid gas mileage without looking like something out of a science-fiction movie. Other practical elements include good visibility, a spacious backseat and low cargo load-in height. However, if all-wheel drive or a lot of cargo room are on your checklist, you should check out one of the many conventionally powered compact SUVs available.
