The 2017 Kia Niro is Kia's first compact hybrid SUV, and it's making quite a stir. The first in its line, the 2017 Kia Niro is proof that a vehicle doesn't need to sacrifice style to become a hybrid. Kia aims to subvert the traditional hybrid expectations. While the Kia Niro still gets good gas mileage as a hybrid, the bulk traditional to hybrids is absent. Kia calls their new creation an "un-hybrid;" the focus isn't that it's a hybrid, but that it's a useful hatchback that also happens to get great gas mileage. Kia set out to make a quality, fuel-efficient hatchback, and they certainly succeeded.

The 2017 Kia Niro brings a host of technological features to the table. The rearview camera comes standard, as do Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There is an available navigation system, as well as available wireless charging.

Kia took the un-hybrid concept to the interior of the Niro as well. While most hybrids have a continuously variable automatic transmission to improve fuel economy, the 2017 Kia Niro has a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. The Kia Niro drives and sounds like a regular car. While many hybrid have reduced trunk space due to the battery, the battery of the Kia Niro is hidden under the back seats. If it weren't for long time between trips to the gas station, you might even forget that you're driving a hybrid.

Despite the marketing, the 2017 Kia Niro is a hybrid at its heart, and that means it gets great gas mileage. The least efficient Kia Niro model gets an EPA estimated 43 mpg combined. The most efficient model gets a whopping EPA estimated 50 mpg combined. You'll go so long between refueling that you might forget where the gas station is located.

The 2017 Kia Niro is the first of what we think will be a long line. Kia's compact hybrid SUV is a quality vehicle, and we think it's here to stay. Visit our Baltimore Kia dealership today for a test drive.
