After its debut for the 2017 model year, Kia's Niro hybrid crossover returns for 2018 with already a steady following of fans and admirers, thanks in large part to its class-leading fuel economy and surprisingly fun-to-drive nature. The 2018 Niro's fuel economy ratings are practically unheard of in the subcompact crossover segment; the innovative hybrid system makes this one unique crossover! Its 103-hp 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine couples with a 43-hp electric motor, creating a total system output of 146 hp. The Niro's hybrid system is also fitted with a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) that was engineering not only to provide smooth and quick shifting, but also to deliver a more natural acceleration feeling than that of hybrids with a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
For 2018, a new Niro Plug-In Hybrid version debuts, offering a limited range on all-electric power alone; then, the full hybrid system will kick in to deliver the crossover's extended range for longer drives.
The 2018 Kia Niro's class-leading fuel economy may not come as a huge shock, given that it is a dedicated hybrid vehicle, but what may surprise you is the 195 lb-ft of torque that makes this hybrid mighty capable! Plus, with the Niro's generous interior volume and expandable cargo area, drivers and families will find that this Kia hybrid makes for the ideal fuel-sipping daily driver or family vehicle. Folding down the Niro's second row of seating quickly converts this hybrid for cargo-hauling mode. Make the practical hybrid vehicle choice and drive a 2018 Kia Niro!
