2017 Kia Niro Hybrid Specs & Features

The Kia Niro has finally arrived right here at Hometown Kia, so we figured now would be the time to fill you in on some of the specs & features we didn’t touch on when we covered the crossover’s price and fuel economy ratings a few weeks back. We’re extremely excited to offer this Guinness World Record-winning vehicle – it received the record for lowest fuel consumption by a hybrid vehicle when it made the trek from LA to NYC clocking in at 76.6 miles per gallon – so be sure to give us a call if you’re interested in a hybrid crossover of your own.

“We’re excited about the Niro. It’s fantastic – exceptional fuel economy, great looks, the usefulness and security of a compact utility and it’s fun to drive. The Niro really does set a new standard in the market.”

– Orth Hedrick, Vice President of Product Planning, Kia Motors of America

Important Specs

Obviously the most important specifications in this subcompact crossover are going to be power, space and, of course, fuel efficiency. Unfortunately, you’re probably not going to be able to achieve 77 mpg every time you get behind the wheel, but you will get an average of 50 mpg combined across city streets and the highway, while still achieving 139 horsepower and 159 pound-feet of torque.

If space wasn’t important to you, you probably wouldn’t be looking at a crossover. So even though the Niro is a subcompact, it’s still important to have plenty of space for cargo and passengers. The 2017 Niro Hybrid offers 19.4 cubic feet of space behind its rear seats to fill with whatever you need, and folding the back seat flat opens up 54.5 cu. ft. Furthermore, you’ll have 97.1 cu. ft. of space for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in.

Exciting Features

The Kia Niro is packed with great features, from entertainment bonuses like UVO3, Apple Carplay, Android Auto and an available Harmon Kardon premium audio system, to driver-assistive safety features like Autonomous Emergy Braking and Lane Change Assist. But perhaps the most exciting to us, is Kia’s new Eco-DAS, a Driver Assistance System that features Coasting Guide and Predictive Energy Control, to features that help you to enhance and maximize the Niro’s fuel efficiency.
