The 2018 Kia Niro is a smarter kind of crossover. From the stylish wheels to the rear spoiler, the Niro mates upscale style with athletic appeal, pushing the limits of what a hybrid can be. More than a cabin, the interior features an available power driver’s seat with lumbar support that adjusts up to 10 ways, heated and ventilated front seats and heated steering wheel. The Niro comes with available concealed storage and seats that fold down to give you more room for larger items. At the core is the pure power of our hybrid-optimized engine with a highly efficient, lightweight electric motor and a powerful lithium-ion polymer battery. But don’t forget about the 1.6L, gasoline-direct injection engine offers both high efficiency and a sporty feel. The Niro is packed with cutting-edge technology, including a built-in 7- or 8-inch color infotainment system, send and receive texts, access your favorite apps, smartphone capabilities, connection to Google Home or Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto support, voice-activated technology, a premium sound system and available wireless charging. It also offers a suite of safety features, including electronic braking, traction control, blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert, lane keep assist, smart cruise control, park assist and forward collision warning.
