Driving Impression

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Kia says the FE, LX and EX models can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 8.6 seconds, while the S Touring and Touring models take 9.6 seconds because they’re nearly 100 pounds heavier.

Even with an aluminum hood, liftgate, and suspension bits, the Niro weighs 3,200 pounds—a lot for the Niro’s combined 139 horsepower. The Niro’s electric motor is just 43 horsepower, so the 1.6-liter gas engine has to do the vast majority of the work.

The Plug-In Hybrid makes the same 139 horsepower, although the plug-in has a bigger electric motor (60 hp vs. 43 hp), as well as a bigger lithium-ion battery (8.9 kwh vs 1.56 kwh).

In all-electric mode, the Plug-In Hybrid has a range of 26 miles, if you’re very easy on the throttle, and the road is level. It’s most useful for parking lots. It can gently accelerate to highway speeds, but the engine joins the powertrain going uphill or accelerating medium.

A drive mode switches between Eco and Sport, with big differences. Sport is significantly quicker but uses battery power up quickly; Eco saves money but it’s slower.

Sport mode is engaged when the driver pulls the shift lever to the left, almost like a downshift. The car comes alive, and easily keeps up with fast traffic on the freeway. The Sport mode enables sharper throttle response and transmission shifts.

As for handling, the Niro is drama-free. There is predictable body lean, as it’s a relatively heavy car with light steering. But its low center of gravity help it handle and hold the road well.

The transmission is quick, decisive and engaging in Sport mode. Kia chose a dual-clutch transmission, rather than a continuously variable transmission. The dual-clutch transmission uses gears like a manual transmission, but feels like an automatic, and can be manually shifted more sharply than a CVT.

Walk Around

The Niro is clean, tasteful and understated. The grille is upright, the headlamps stretch rearward under the sides of a long good, the roof reaches back without drama, and the stance appears low despite a relatively high ground clearance to make entrance and exit easy.

It has big wheel arches with black flares, a thick cowl, rocker-panel cladding, roof rails, and a rear skid plate that makes it resemble a Jeep Cherokee from the rear. These are hardly aerodynamic touches, yet the drag coefficient is a low 0.29.

A small flash of blue trim around the front parking lights distinguishes the Plug-In Hybrids.

Interior Overview

Editor:

“”

The quality of the cabin materials is good, and the surfaces are mostly hard matte black plastic, although there is some high-gloss plastic. The instrumentation is simple and basic, with big white-on-black gauges that give no indication it’s a hybrid, except for a big green leaf on the panel.

With seat frames that came out of the near-luxury Optima sedan, the front seating position is high. The front seats are comfortable in any upholstery; FE and LX trims get woven cloth, EX and S Touring get a cloth/leather combination, and Touring EX Premium get leather.

The cabin is wide and feels it. There’s comfortable room for four people, and enough elbow room for five, with three abreast in the rear, where there’s a solid 37.4 inches of leg room. Headroom is more limited; the rear seatbacks are canted, not upright, so the passengers’ heads don’t touch the ceiling.

There’s 19.4 cubic feet or cargo space behind the rear seat, where the cargo floor is low and flat, because the battery is under the rear seat.

With the rear seat folded, not quite flat, there’s 54.5 cubic feet.

Kia has done an excellent job of insulating the body structure and isolating engine noise. When you floor it and the engine howls, the noise stays out of the cabin.

Outward vision in the Kia Niro is generally good, although the view toward the back is compromised by thick rear roof pillars

Summary

“”

The Kia Niro hybrids offer a nifty new alternative to the usual hybrid hatchbacks on the road. We especially like the Plug-In Hybrid, because you get more for the same money, after the government rebates. The Niro is stylish and the cabin has good cargo space—and it has Kia’s excellent warranty coverage to boot.
