The Niro is a compact crossover showcasing all of Kia’s electrification technologies at the moment.

It also boasts a surprisingly roomy and attractively styled cabin. As far as the driving experience goes, the ride is comfortable and the powertrain proves fun and flexible—whichever you choose. There’s no AWD option, though.
