"Kia Niro lights a fire with looks, and performance"
Introducing the Niro. Recognized by USA TODAY as the vehicle that “lights a fire with looks and performance.” A new approach to what a hybrid crossover can be, the Niro FE achieves an EPA-est. 50 mpg combined and a near-600-mile range. And its high-efficiency 1.6L GDI engine and smooth-transitioning dual-clutch automatic transmission deliver pure joy behind the wheel.
A GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ achievement.
With record-breaking performance, the Kia Niro was driven in the achievement of a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for lowest fuel consumption driving across the USA from coast to coast in a hybrid car. Wayne Gerdes and co-driver Robert Winger achieved the record by driving the Niro LX 3,715 miles—from LA to NYC—using only 4.1 tanks of gas. That’s a record-setting mark of an incredible 76.6 mpg.
The best of both worlds.
The Niro is the no-compromise vehicle. Thoughtfully designed to combine the benefits of the crossover and hybrid worlds. Like the forward-looking engineering and optimized fuel economy of a hybrid. And the versatile design and practicality of a crossover. It’s the high-style, high-MPG adventure vehicle made for the no-compromise driver
Make a bold entrance.
The wide stance. The sleek, dark trim. And, face to face, available High-Intensity Discharge (HID) projector beam headlights and LED positioning lamps for crisp illumination. From the stylish wheels to the rear spoiler, the Niro mates upscale style with athletic appeal, pushing the limits of what a hybrid can be.
Clean lines, cleaner air.
The Niro is smart aerodynamic design—from front to back, from top all the way to bottom. Meticulously sculpted to minimize drag, the Niro’s shape helps improve fuel efficiency.
It’s a destination all on its own. Loaded with available amenities like soft leather seating and a heated steering wheel, the Niro is designed for maximum comfort. Plus, it boasts more interior volume than the Toyota Prius and more headroom than the Honda HR-V. That means more room for you to enjoy the ride.
More than a cabin, it’s your space to relax. Featuring an available power driver’s seat with lumbar support that adjusts up to 10 ways. And an available power sunroof that offers fresh air and sunlight at the push of a button. The Niro is a welcoming getaway tailored to you.
Flexible, functional, and fitting for your lifestyle. Along with a spacious cargo area, the Niro comes with available concealed storage and seats that fold down to give you more room for larger items. It’s on-the-go versatility for everyday driving.
Just ask Google™.
Explore Niro without lifting a finger. Google™ Home can answer all your Niro questions—with no downloading and no additional setup. Just start by saying, “Ok Google™, talk to Kia Niro.” Then ask what you’re interested in, like the Niro’s powertrain, miles per gallon, dealerships, or pricing. Your Google™ Home will take care of the rest.
You know you’re in no ordinary crossover when you can wirelessly charge your smartphone while it plays your favorite song, on an available Harman/Kardon Premium Sound System. And those are just a few of the high-tech innovations to keep you charged and connected.
Command more than road.
With UVO, Kia’s free infotainment system, you can send and receive texts, access your favorite apps, and connect to your smartphone via Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™—all through the Niro’s built-in 7” or 8” color touchscreen display. Plus, voice-activated technology gives you ultimate convenience with both hands on the wheel. Learn more at www.myuvo.com.
Music in motion.
Every adventure should have its own rich soundscape. That’s why the available Harman/Kardon Premium Sound System delivers crisp, custom-tuned audio. And it features Clari-Fi™ technology that intelligently restores compressed tracks for dramatically clear music as it’s meant to be heard.
Recharge your smartphone with the ingenuous power of available wireless charging. And with multiple ways to power your devices throughout the cabin, the Niro provides convenient charging no matter where you sit.
A smarter state of mind.
Drive confidently with Kia Drive Wise, Kia's very own suite of available driver-assistive technologies. Explore the available systems Niro offers, like Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection which automatically applies the brakes if it anticipates a frontal collision.
Blind Spot Detection
Available Blind Spot Detection (BSD) is advanced technology that helps reduce the blind spots on the side and rear areas of your Niro. The radar-based detection system sends out visual or auditory signals to help warn you of objects not in your field of view.
Rear views that look ahead.
Whether you’re starting your commute or in the middle of a road trip, Niro’s got your back on every mile. Available Lane Change Assist (LCA) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) offer a second set of eyes for rear viewing. So that you can focus on the road ahead.
Smart Cruise Control
Meet the system that does more than set your pace. Available Smart Cruise Control (SCC) adapts to your driving environment by automatically applying the brakes, or accelerator, to help maintain a predetermined distance from the vehicle in front of you.
Forward Collision Warning System
It’s advanced tech that anticipates and responds automatically. The available Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) gives audible and visual alerts when it detects a potential hazard in your path.
Lane Keep Assist System
The available Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS) helps you stay on course by monitoring the position of your Niro and may apply corrective steering if it senses you drifting outside your lane.
Park Assist System
This advanced drive-assist technology helps you stay informed while you park. Using sonar sensors integrated in the Niro’s bumpers, the available front and rear parking assist gives an audible warning when you near other vehicles or objects.
Ahead of the curve.
Cross over to a new kind of hybrid. From the Parallel Hybrid System and regenerative braking system, to the impressively efficient and fun-to-drive dual-clutch automatic transmission with Sport Mode, the Niro is the perfect pairing of optimized fuel economy and dynamic driving performance. And with a 10-year/100,00-mile warranty that covers the hybrid system, including the electric traction motor, you can drive the open road with confidence.
At the core of Niro’s innovative powertrain is Kia’s Full Parallel Hybrid System. It combines the pure power of our hybrid-optimized engine with a highly efficient, lightweight electric motor and a powerful lithium-ion polymer battery. The result is a smooth, reliable performance that delivers outstanding hybrid efficiency.
Changing the rules of hybrid.
Meet the automatic transmission that raises the bar for how a hybrid should perform. Where many hybrids use a continuously variable transmission (CVT), the Niro features a highly responsive, 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) that shifts gears smoothly and quickly. The result is a crisp, exhilarating drive.
Any time you slow down, the regenerative braking system charges Niro up. During deceleration, the electric traction motor captures the kinetic energy to recharge the battery. It’s one of the many energy-smart technologies that help maximize fuel economy.
