Under the bonnet the Kia Niro features a 1.6GDi 104bhp engine that works in partnership with a 43bhp electric motor that incorporates lithium-ion batteries for storing energy. Offering a smooth drive it offers impressive emission levels of up to 88 g/km of CO2 and MPG figures of 74.3 on a combined cycle.

Offering practicality and comfort the new Kia Niro is designed around the hybrid drive system allowing space to be created. Passengers both in the front and back get ample head and leg room. Storage is taken care of thanks to an impressive 373 litre boot capacity that can be increased to 1,371 with the rear seats folded down. This is complemented by an impressive glove box and other in car storage areas.

Leading motoring publication Auto Express commented on a resent road test “The Kia Niro is a petrol-electric hybrid model that steers clear of the normally extrovert styling cues of these sort of cars, and that alone will put it at the top of many buyers shopping lists”. It added “And in isolation, the Niro is a spacious, well equipped and efficient family crossover”. 

As with ever new Kia model, the Niro comes with the industry leading 7 year / 100,000 mile warranty as standard. Find out more about the new Kia Niro at Jennings Kia.
