As of its unveiling, the 2017 Kia Niro Hybrid is the only one of its kind in the market today, making it a pioneer in the dedicated subcompact hybrid crossover segment. As a forerunner, it already strikes the sweet spot by welcoming car shoppers with engaging driving dynamics, fantastic mpg, incredible utility, and stellar design that makes it one of the most stylish hybrid vehicles you’ll find.
A Wonderful Place to Spend Time In
Inside, the 2017 Kia Niro Hybrid is warm, inviting, and thoroughly modern. The dashboard is clean and uncluttered, and various black and white inserts round off the tidy design. You’ll find an informative and colorful instrument cluster, plus an infotainment screen that’s user friendly and offers large visuals. Unlike its more cramped counterparts, the 2017 Niro Hybrid is extremely roomy thanks to short overhangs, a 106.3-inch wheelbase, and wide stance. Elevated seated positions give passengers an open view of the outside.
On the convenience and tech side, you have great features like the UVO3 system equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There’s also UVO eServices with 14 telematics services, all of which are accessible with a 7-inch touchscreen located on the center stack.
In addition, the 2017 Kia Niro Hybrid is powered by a 1.6-liter “Kappa” four-cylinder engine under the hood. It produces up to 103 horsepower, paired with a 43-HP electric motor. Due to its brand-new platform, the 2017 Niro Hybrid is lightweight without compromising on power. It’s expected to earn top honors from the IIHS and NHTSA thanks to its use of durable structure and high-strength steel.
