The new Kia Niro is a hybrid crossover that sets out to offer the practicality of a crossover with the high fuel efficiency of an advanced hybrid powertrain. Source: Kia Motors Ireland Michael Cole, Chief Operating Officer of Kia Motors Europe, commented: “The Kia Niro offers buyers a compelling blend of crossover practicality with the cool, modern styling for which Kia is famous, and an efficient new hybrid powertrain to keep running costs down.” The Niro’s mild hybrid powertrain consists of a 1.6-litre GDI engine, a lithium-ion polymer battery pack, a 32kW electric motor and a six-speed double-clutch transmission. It emits just 88g/km CO2 (combined), which places it in tax band A2 which is €180 per annum and fuel consumption is a claimed 3.8 litres/100km. Prices in Ireland will start from €30,495 excluding the current the €1,500 VRT relief for hybrids. Standard equipment is generous and will include Sat Nav with Android Auto, full leather heated seats, dual air-con, Lane Keep Assist, LED front and rear lights, privacy glass and rain sensors.
