2017 Kia Niro Touring 1.6 Liter + Electric from North America


Very well made, with good fit and finish and many premium features


So far nothing. Lots of premium features.

General Comments:

Many premium features. Power folding side mirrors. Heated/cooled front seats. Rear cross traffic alert. Only disappointment is that I thought the Touring model included the automatic emergency braking feature, which this vehicle did not have. I should have 'looked more thoroughly'.

Averaging between 42 to 48 MPG. Ride is firm but good. Some road noise but for the most part quiet. The car has 6 speed automatic vs. most hybrids use CVT. It performs better and the engine is somewhat quieter because of this.

Was shopping for a Honda CR-V, but they don't have a hybrid available yet.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
