An all-new low-emissions hybrid crossover, the Kia Niro offers the practicality and curbside appeal of a spacious crossover, together with the high fuel efficiency of an advanced hybrid powertrain. Engineered from the ground up as a dedicated hybrid vehicle, its attractive, modern design helps the car stand out among conservatively-styled hybrid rivals.
The Niro’s hybrid powertrain – made up of a 1.6-litre GDI (gasoline direct injection) engine, lithium-ion polymer battery pack, 32 kW electric motor and six-speed double-clutch transmission aims for CO2 emissions of 89 g/km.
Michael Cole, Chief Operating Officer, Kia Motors Europe, commented, “The Kia Niro will offer buyers a compelling blend of crossover practicality with the cool, modern styling for which Kia is famous, and an efficient new hybrid powertrain to keep running costs down. The Niro fills a gap in the market for a crossover with typically low hybrid emissions, and will appeal to a broad range of European buyers.”
The new model occupies a new space within the brand’s model line-up in terms of its size. The Niro is smaller overall than the all-new Kia Sportage, though occupying a larger footprint than the cee’d hatchback.
The Kia Niro is now available for test drive at Airton Kia and – as with every Kia sold – comes with the brand’s unique 7-Year, 150,000 km warranty.
