Introducing the 2017 Niro. A new approach to what a hybrid crossover can be. It achieves an EPA-est. 50 mpg combined and a near-600-mile range. And it features a high-efficiency 1.6L GDI engine and a smooth-transitioning dual-clutch automatic transmission that deliver pure fun behind the wheel.
The Niro is the no-compromise vehicle. Thoughtfully designed to combine the benefits of the crossover and hybrid worlds. Like the forward-looking engineering and optimized fuel economy of a hybrid. And the versatile design and practicality of a crossover. It’s the high-style, high-MPG adventure vehicle made for the no-compromise driver.
With record-breaking performance, the Kia Niro was driven in the achievement of a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for Lowest fuel consumption driving across the USA from coast to coast in a hybrid car. Wayne Gerdes and co-driver Robert Winger achieved the record by driving the Niro EX 3,715 miles—from LA to NYC—using only 4.1 tanks of gas. That’s a record-setting mark of an incredible 76.6 mpg.
