2018 Kia Niro: Small Vehicle Delivers on Big Promise


It may be little, but the 2018 Kia Niro delivers more than many bigger vehicles promise. From price to fuel economy, the well equipped Niro will save you a bundle, and you won't miss out on comforts and conveniences to do so.

AJAC voted the Niro 2018's Green Utility Vehicle of the Year, and we can see why. It's versatile, comfortable, and ridiculously good on gas. This all-in-one hybrid crossover definitely deserves a closer look.

First, it's powertrain. The Niro is powered by a 1.6-litre GDI engine that runs alongside a lightweight electric motor and an energy-dense lithium-ion battery, delivering 195 lb-ft of torque and high efficiency performance. When driven at low speeds, it runs in electric-only mode. The battery can be recharged while driving at fixed speeds or while decelerating.  During periods of acceleration or climbing, both the engine and electric motor run simultaneously. A highly-responsive, 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission ensures that gears shift smoothly and quickly.

Inside, the Niro's cabin is roomy, with comfortable seating for four. It's filled with comforts and conveniences, including fully automatic climate control, power windows, automatic headlights, tire pressure monitoring, power locks, keyless entry and Idle Stop & Go to save power and fuel.

If you're looking to save money, the 2018 Kia Niro may be one of the most economical vehicles around. It starts at less than $25,000 and sips a mere 4.5/4.8 L/100 km (city/highway). That means you'll save money at purchase, and for years to come at the pump. With a quick visit to Orangeville Kia, you'll quickly see how much value you're getting for your money.

Standard equipment on the Niro is generous. Even the base model comes with heated seats, LED daytime running lights, 7" display audio, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto integration, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel and Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity. As one escalates through the trim lines, the number of amenities increase. These features include wireless phone charging, smart key with pushbutton start and LED rear combination tail lights on the EX model. On the EX Premium, you'll get yourself a power sunroof, and some extra safety features: Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Finally, the top trim, the SX Touring model adds 18" alloy wheels, leather seats, premium audio, an 8" multimedia interface with navigation, Hyundai's Driver Attention Alert system and an autonomous emergency braking system. These great safety features have helped the Niro to be chosen as a Top Safety Pick + by the IIHS, making it one of the safest vehicles on the road today.

With it's low sticker price, outrageously good fuel economy and high level of standard equipment, the 2018 Kia Niro is a great deal, plain and simple. This fantastic little crossover boasts a low cost of ownership, which is only enhanced by Kia's outstanding warranty. Drop by the Orangeville showroom of Orangeville Kia for a test drive, and to let a knowledgeable Kia team member show you why the Niro may be the perfect compliment to your lifestyle and budget.
