2018 Kia Niro the Subcompact Crossover Hybrid to Go the Distance

Vehicles of myriad builds are heading into a greener convergent future. The 2018 Kia Niro, in fuel-efficient FE, LX, EX and go-getter Touring trims, looks to be the hybrid to take you there, and with a subcompact design that nonetheless showcases a comfortable, spacious interior replete with advanced convenience and safety tech to make the ride more than enjoyable. Let our Kia aficionados here at Murray Kia introduce you to the crossover to take you that extra mile.

A Model of Fuel Economy No Matter What the Trim

2018 Niro kicks off with quite the centerpiece - a 1.6-liter, inline-4 Full Parallel Hybrid System putting out 104 horsepower via a 16-valve DOHC engine, augmented by a 43-horsepower electric motor churning power to a 1.56-kilowatt-hour, lithium-ion polymer battery. That means a combined 139 horsepower and 195 combined pound-feet of torque, making for zippy travels. And you can rest assured of optimal fuel efficiency coupled with a sporty feel and cabin quietude alike thanks to an Active Eco System, Sportmatic-equipped dual-clutch 6-speed automatic transmission and independent multilink rear and front MacPherson strut suspensions, each with a stabilizer bar. So hop in and hit the road, because if the exceptional estimated 52 mpg city/49 mpg highway/50 mpg combined fuel economy of Niro FE has anything to say about it, your day trip may soon become your extended vacation. Even LX, EX and Touring weigh in at an impressive, trim-dependent 46-51 mpg, 40-46 mpg and 43-49 mpg respectively.

Each Iteration Speaks to Unique Style to Capture Attention, and Below it, Luxurious Comfort and a Host of Tech

If you're going to be cruising from highway to off the beaten path, you might as well turn heads doing it. 2018 Kia Niro's sleek steel unibody shows off a chrome-trimmed glossy black radiator grille, black fender and rocker rail cladding, and an aggressive rear spoiler to do just that, and body-color power outside mirrors and door handles and 16" alloy wheels with full covers deliver striking accents. Step up to Niro Touring and you'll truly get the double-take with 18" alloy wheels

On the inside, 2018 Niro's just as pleasant, and it brings with it more than a few perks for the drive-time experience, including mood lighting to create the right ambiance for the trip. Soft cloth seating bedecks lower trims, topped off by a 4-way adjustable driver's seat, with upper-trim cloth seating showcasing touches of leather and heated options. The apex of comfort presents in Niro Touring, with a full leather deck-out complete with a 10-way-adjustable driver's seat with 2-way lumbar support.

Niro's console setup's a breeze for the duration, its UVO eServices -inch color touchscreen with AM/FM/MP3/SiriusXM support  and Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ compatibility putting infotainment and peripheral connectivity at your fingertips, flanked by crystal-clear metric readouts on a Supervision Meter Cluster with a 4.2" LCD trim computer. Higher trims deliver an extra inch on Niro's touchscreen, reaching a whopping 8 inches, as well as a Voice-Command Navigation System to get you from point A to point Anywhere with reliability. The 6-Speaker audio system in lower trims easily graduates to those upper in the form of an 8-speaker, subwoofer-equipped Harman/Kardon® premium surround sound system with Clari-Fi technology to keep your tunes thumping with audiophile-grade quality. And with standard offerings like Bluetooth, steering-wheel-mounted multifunction controls, USB and aux input jacks for media players, and dual front 12-voilt power outlets to charge devices, it's easy to keep everyone connected and entertained on the go.

And 2018 Kia Niro Doesn't Skimp on Storage Capacity or Safety Features

With all these amenities in tow, wouldn't you want to stretch your legs and remain able to take as much luggage and road swag with you to boot? 2018 Niro can make it happen, boasting a roomy 97.1-to-102 cubic feet of passenger volume, so keep a few friends close by. Loading up's a snap thanks to the up-to-54.5 cubic feet of cargo space made possible by Niro's 60/40 split folding rear seat, but should you take those buds with you instead, a center armrest and adjustable rear headrests ought to keep them reclining comfortably.

Rough terrain and adverse weather on the horizon? 2018 Niro shows itself a model to tack into it, with Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), a dependable Traction Control System (TCS) and roll-preventative Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) to help get the job done. Upper trims provide the welcome additions of a Blind Spot Detection System (BSD) with Lane Change Assist as well as Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), so it's easy to keep an eye on vehicles and obstacles in close proximity during maneuvers. Every iteration even features a standard rearview camera, making parking and reversing a mere matter of course.
