Kia Niro

Price $26,995 – $54,695
Fuel consumption < 5.6 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 84%(view ratings)
Now featuring Kia’s new logo along with updated equipment, the Niro is a small crossover that attracts buyers for many reasons starting with a trio of powertrain options from a single platform—hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric. The last one delivers a healthy 291 pound-feet of torque and a range of up to 385 kilometres. None of them are available with all-wheel drive, though. The interior proves fairly versatile given the compact exterior dimensions.
