Are you shopping for a roomy crossover or SUV that is highly fuel-efficient? Or, maybe you want to drive a new hybrid car that affords the space and versatility needed for your active life. Either way, the 2018 Kia Niro is the vehicle for you, since it combines the popularity of versatile crossovers with the fuel-sipping nature of an advanced hybrid vehicle. Kia's Niro is the world's first dedicated hybrid utility vehicle, meaning that this well-rounded crossover comes standard-equipped with Kia's latest hybrid technology, and was designed that way -- not as an afterthought as a way to make a typical crossover more fuel-efficient. Kia pulled out all the stops when developing the advanced Niro hybrid crossover, and it shows!

Following its debut for the 2017 model year, Kia's Niro returns for 2018 with a strong following of fans of the world's first dedicated hybrid utility vehicle. The Niro's fuel efficiency is unheard of in the subcompact crossover segment, thanks to the innovative hybrid system developed to be the heart of this unique vehicle! A 103-hp 1.6-liter inline 4-cylinder engine works together with a 43-hp electric motor to develop a total output of 146 hp. The Niro's hybrid system would not be complete without its standard 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT). This second-generation of Kia's DCT gearbox boasts smooth and prompt shifting, and delivers a more natural shift feeling than that of hybrids equipped with a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
While you certainly expect the 2018 Niro hybrid to lead the subcompact crossover class in fuel economy, it is also a blast to drive, thanks to its hybrid powertrain's 195 lb-ft of torque! Once you test drive the new Niro, you are sure to appreciate not only its fuel economy returns, but also its very un-hybrid driving experience! For 2018, Kia is debuting a Niro Plug-In Hybrid version of its hybrid crossover that can travel a limited range on electric power alone, then engage the hybrid system to deliver its extended range.
