2017 Kia Niro – the best of both worlds 

So, is the crossover a hybrid?  The answer is yes!  The 2017 Kia Niro takes a whole new approach to what a hybrid crossover can be.  The entire design is unique and offers amazing fuel efficiency. 

Unlike other hybrids, the 2017 Kia Niro offers more space and a highly responsive, smooth-shifting dual-clutch automatic transmission, changing the way a hybrid feels while driving.  And unlike other crossovers, the Niro has a unique aerodynamic shape and offers superior fuel economy.  Looking at the chart below, you can really see how the 2017 Kia Niro surpasses both a typical hybrid and crossover in fuel efficiency and meets the competitive edge with its engine.
