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 will help 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 – emits just 88 g/km CO2 (combined), and is capable of using just 3.8 litres of gasoline for every 100 km of driving.
Prices in Ireland will start from €30,495 excluding the current the €1500 VRT relief for hybrid vehicles. Standard equipment will include Sat Nav with Android Auto (Apple Play to follow), full leather heated seats, dual air-con, Lane Keep Assist, LED front and rear lights, privacy glass and rain sensors.
