New 2017 Kia Niro at Dulles Kia for Frederick, MD
Bursting onto the scene in 2017, the front-wheel drive, 5-door Kia Niro is here to compete in the hybrid market and offers style and sophistication to the field. Most people viewing it would say it looks like most other hatchback crossovers out there, which is Kia's intent with this vehicle: To get their owners fantastic gas mileage without (potentially) looking like a vehicle for the pompous elite. It's approachable and designed to incorporate seamlessly into what drivers are used to, plus add an estimated 50 mpg with its gas-electric hybrid system! And on top of that, the Niro's body is made of 53 percent Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) that reinforces the A- and B-pillars and the roof rails-so you are going to be safer in this strongly designed car than you would be in a plastic-lined tin can. If you have been waiting to get on the hybrid page until they started looking like a normal car that you would use, the wait is over with this sleek 2017 Kia Niro!
Under the Niro's Hood
It comes with the all-new Kappa 1.6-liter GDI four-cylinder engine, made for hybrid applications, and generates 103 horsepower. A 43-hp tractive motor, known as the transmission-mounted electric device (TMED), works together with the gasoline engine to achieve a robust 146 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. This engine combines the Atkinson Cycle, cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), GDI and a long-stroke-narrow-bore condition to make the most efficiency. A second-generation six-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) powers and drives the Niro very well, plus is a bold choice in the hybrid field, as it is currently awash in a sea of CVT transmissions. The handling is improved by the body design and gets a coefficient drag of 0.29, which is pretty great for slicing through the wind and getting better fuel economy.
Design of Kia Niro
On the front, Kia's signature grille appears here and is fringed by tested headlights and fashioned contouring. Large wheel arches, rocker panels, a rear skid plate, and roof rails build to a decidedly athletic look. Inside the Niro reveals a modern and yet utility-minded focus: The instrument panel is neat and lively, gauges are well-placed for quick assessment and interactions. Seats can have an increased cushion density for a comfortable ride, helping to prevent fatigue on longer outings. The elevated seat position will be appreciated by drivers who need to see over snowbanks and shrubs, while also allowing easier entry/exit from the vehicle. There are 25.5 cubic feet of space in the Niro's hatchback cargo area, because the rear seatback can be folded down flat. A quiet interior ride was important to Kia on this model, as hybrids can still be loud with hums and road noise. There is a lot of additional insulation, expanding foam in the A- and B-pillars, an acoustic windshield, insulated under-hood pad, a steering-wheel road vibration damper, sculpted side-mirrors, fine-tuned suspension bushings, and a higher standard of body sealing was applied. All of this is so that drivers can focus better and passengers can enjoy the entertainment systems without distraction! Kia's 'UVO3' comes with it and has been tested on other Kia models, so no new hiccups to navigate. It has all three capabilities here: Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and UVO eServices featuring 14 telematics services, all on a 7-inch capacitive touch screen.

The Niro has a collection of progressive driver assistance and convenience technologies, to match its futuristic goals, such as Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist, Smart Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, and Autonomous Emergency Braking. The all-new Eco-DAS (Driver Assistance System) features Kia's first use of their Coasting Guide (an interactive coach for the driver) and Predictive Energy Control, which uses the natural ups and downs of the road to maximize energy efficiency. So you are going to be able to get great gas mileage while being protected, and also be able to blend in with the regular gas-only cars on the streets today. The hatchback on this hybrid utility vehicle is a popular design choice, and Kia has truly put in the work to get you the ride you have been waiting for here today.
