The 2021 Kia Niro is a compact crossover that’s offered with three high-tech drivetrains, including gas/electric hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and pure electric (EV).
The Niro gas/electric hybrid earns EPA-estimated fuel economy of 51 mpg in the city and 46 on the highway. All Niro models (except for the base trim) come with driver drowsiness monitoring, lane keep assist, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. Blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert are also included.
The Niro plug-in hybrid can travel up to 26 miles on electricity alone before seamlessly switching to traditional hybrid operation.
Opt for the Niro EV, and you’ll have an EPA-estimated range of 239 miles on a single charge.
Because of incomplete predicted reliability data, the Niro is not currently scored in our hybrid and electric SUV ranking.
