All-new Niro hybrid complements Kia range at Jennings

Customers visiting Jennings Kia, part of the multi-award winning Jennings Moor Group, are taking advantage of the latest model to join the popular range – the all-new Kia Niro Hybrid Utility Vehicle.

Kia’s first dedicated petrol-electric hybrid, which combines crossover looks with hybrid technology, is on display and available to test drive at Jennings Kia’s Concorde Way branch in Stockton and the Parsons Road site in Washington.

Priced from £21,295 the all-new Niro is the ultimate choice for those who care about the environment, with a parallel hybrid system that switches between petrol and electric power, or uses a combination of both, and charges the battery whenever it can. 

A new 1.6-litre GDI (gasoline direct injection) petrol engine, which has been engineered specifically for hybrid applications, is paired with a 32 kW electric motor and a lithium-ion polymer battery pack.

The durable and lightweight 1.56kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack is the lightest and most efficient pack used by Kia to date.  Efficiently controlling electrical energy and cooling more effectively, the battery pack also comes with the manufacturer’s seven-year warranty.

Kinetic energy produced when decelerating or coming to a stop is captured and turned into electricity.  This in turn is used to help recharge the battery.

The new model also includes the latest connectivity and active safety technologies, including Kia Connected Services featuring TomTom®, wireless smartphone charging, autonomous emergency braking, smart cruise control and lane-keeping, blind spot and rear cross traffic warning systems.  The Niro also offers Android Auto – a first for Kia – which links Android smartphones to Google Maps navigation, Google Play music, hands-free calls and texts and voice recognition via pre-downloaded apps.

Available in a four model line-up badged ‘1’, ‘2’, ‘3’ and ‘First Edition’, all are comprehensively equipped with comfort, luxury, connectivity and driver assistance features.  Every version has a Lane Keeping Assist System, Hill-Start Assist Control, Cruise Control and Speed Limiter.  Every model also comes with a DAB radio, Bluetooth smartphone connectivity and music streaming as standard.

In keeping with every Kia model in the line-up, the all-new Niro comes with Kia’s seven-year or 100,000 mile warranty, subject to wear and tear conditions.  The warranty – the best on any hybrid available in Britain – is fully transferable should the car be sold before the time or mileage limits have been reached.

Other models in the range and on display at the Stockton-based dealership include the Picanto, Rio, Soul, Venga, cee’d GT, new cee’d, cee’d Sportswagon, new pro_cee’d, pro_cee’d GT, Carens and all-new Optima, Sportage and Sorento.

Customers who purchase a new car from Jennings Kia, can also take advantage of a range of aftersales facilities, with a service, MOT and parts department on site at both dealerships.
