2017 Kia Niro Features

The 2017 Kia Niro is the latest hybrid utility vehicle to take to United States roadways. Designed to be the perfect combination of cargo space, style, and efficiency, the crossover clearly has a bright future, and since it will be available from an affordable price, the Kia Niro is a true force to be reckoned with.

 

Affordability

The 2017 Kia Niro easily undercuts its nearest competitors, the Nissan Rogue Hybrid and Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, by several thousand dollars. For the price, drivers will enjoy impressive efficiency, a vast array of standard features, and plenty of technology.

 

Technology

From infotainment to connectivity to safety, the Kia Niro does it all in style. For starters, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard across the board. Then, drivers have the option of adding more active safety technologies to the Kia Niro as well. Top features, like Lane-Departure Warning, Blind-Spot Monitoring, and Adaptive Cruise Control ensure that the Niro is a leader in the hybrid crossover segment.

Efficiency

The 2017 Kia Niro boasts a hybrid powertrain that produces 139 hp, but that is only half the story. When it comes to efficiency, the Niro rules the roost with an EPA-estimated 52 mpg city/49 mpg highway.* That puts it on par with smaller (and typically more efficient) hybrid cars, like the Toyota Prius.

We here at Gossett Kia can’t wait to see what the future holds for the Kia Niro!

Kia Earns Two Best Cars for the Money Awards

When you have a tight budget for a car, you might think that you won’t be able to get many features. However, cars today, even small ones, can come well-equipped and won’t cost you a fortune. To help you find the perfect balance between affordability and great features, U.S. News & World Report gives out its Best Cars for the Money awards each year.

This year, two Kia models came home with these great awards, the compact Soul and stylish Sorento. The Best Cars for the Money awards are given out based on a variety of criteria, including reliability, safety, industry experts’ opinions, and overall value. A vehicle’s value is measured by the average price paid by consumers along with its predicted five-year cost of ownership.2017 Kia Sorento Earns Award Of Best Cars For The Money
