The handsome Kia Niro is easy to drive and particularly adept at coping with the hustle and bustle of busy town and city life. Moreover, thanks to its plug-in hybrid powertrain, the Niro is rather frugal when it comes to fuel bills
Entry-level ‘2’ trim lines are fitted with a 1.6-litre 139bhp petrol-electric engine, which delivers a notable 76.3mpg (combined) figure and CO2 emissions from just 86g/km. Plug-in hybrid electric variants, meanwhile, return as much as 217.3mpg and produce emissions as low as 29g/km. Very impressive statistics, especially considering the same engine allows the Niro to proceed from 0-60mph in approximately 10.6 seconds.
With its crossover good looks and five-door body, the Niro blends style and practicality perfectly. The vehicle also boasts eye-catching features as standard, such as body-coloured, powered and heated door mirrors, and lightweight, efficient 16-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the Niro offers plenty of room in both compartments – certainly for four adult travellers, or a young family of five. A wide range of stowage cubbies are on hand, making it easy to keep tabs on drinks, books and mobile devices. The car’s 427-litre boot space expands to as much as 1,425 litres with rear seats folded, and a low load sill makes placing and retrieving shopping, luggage and other items as simple as possible.
Automatic air conditioning (featuring dual-zone climate control) and all-round electric windows ensure that arriving at an ideal cabin temperature is always plain sailing. Also included as standard are a six-speaker sound system, a seven-inch touchscreen navigation system, and Bluetooth connectivity. The latter enables music streaming and safe, hands-free telephone communication. Speaking of safety, the Niro boasts a maximum five-star crash-test rating, as awarded by Euro NCAP. This is in recognition of the vehicle’s range of standard driver aids and passive safety features. Included is Lane Keep Assist, which helps you to keep the car in lane, unless you indicate an intended left or right turn.
