Would you like to drive a fuel-efficient hybrid, but have yet to find a hybrid that offers enough space and versatility for your lifestyle? Well, that all changes with the introduction of the new Kia Niro hybrid crossover. Drivers will love that Kia's latest crossover comes equipped with an advanced hybrid powertrain providing impressive fuel economy, while offering the natural driving feel, cabin spaciousness, and 'un-hybrid' exterior design of any other sporty Kia crossover. If you live near New Bern and Richlands, North Carolina, you can explore the stylish and versatile new Kia Niro hybrid crossover in Jacksonville, NC at Stevenson KIA of Jacksonville. Our friendly team of sales professionals can give you a comprehensive tour of all the groundbreaking features of the 2017 Kia Niro.
The 2017 Kia Niro recently debuted as the world's first dedicated hybrid utility vehicle, and its exceptional fuel efficiency is unheard of in the crossover segment! At the heart of every Niro crossover is a new hybrid system, featuring a 103-hp 1.6-liter engine paired with a silky-smooth 6-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT). The second-generation DCT unit provides smooth and quick shifting, with a much more natural feel than that of hybrids equipped with continuously variable transmissions (CVT). A 43-hp electric motor is coupled with the 103-hp gasoline engine to produce a total hybrid powertrain output of 146 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. The Niro's simplified hybrid system delivers smooth and efficient power to the front wheels, and provides a very un-hybrid-like driving experience.
Stepping inside the new Kia Niro hybrid subcompact crossover, drivers and passengers are greeted by a modern and high-tech interior, featuring glossy white or black accents throughout the cabin. The hybrid subcompact crossover's 106.3-inch wheelbase affords ample legroom for both front and rear passengers. Its crossover design includes an elevated seating position similar to the Kia Soul, which gives drivers a commanding and expansive view of the road, and allows easy entry and exit of the vehicle for all passengers.
