Delivering high-MPG efficiency at a targeted 50 miles to the gallon, the 2017 Niro is a completely new breed of crossover. It features Kia's all-new, high-efficiency 1.6L GDI 4-cylinder engine and a smooth-transitioning 6-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission that offers the driving feel you wouldn't expect of a hybrid.
Saved energy means increased driving range, and we've designed the Niro to take you further. We use weight-saving materialsâ€”from the body panels to the electric motor and battery packâ€”to preserve energy. We crafted the body to be exceptionally aerodynamic for a quieter, more fuel-efficient ride. And with driver-only ventilation, the Niro helps save energy when you're driving alone.
At the core of the Niro's cutting-edge powertrain is Kia's Full Parallel Hybrid System. It combines the pure power of a hybrid-exclusive engine with the dynamic efficiency of a 43hp electric motor and a lithium-ion polymer battery. All three in tandem deliver a performance so smooth and reliable, you'll get the feel of an internal combustion engine (ICE) without sacrificing hybrid efficiency.
It's the intelligent console that keeps you connected and in control. Access all your Niro's vitals, from energy distribution to fuel economy stats, right through your digital display.
ECO Driving offers fuel-efficient fun. The more efficiently you drive, the more leaves your tree grows. Maximize your mileage to make each trip its greenest.

The wide and low stance. The sleek, dark trim. And, face to face, available High-Intensity Discharge (HID) projector beam headlights and LED positioning lamps for crisp illumination. The Niro mates upscale style with athletic appeal, pushing the limits of what a hybrid can be.
Alluring from every angle, the Niro exudes attitude even when it leaves. Privacy glass offers a low-profile look while helping keep passengers cool, and the sporty rear spoiler complements the Niro's streamlined design. Available LED rear combination lamps enhance an already eye-catching departure.
It's a destination all on its own. Loaded with driver-focused features and amenities that deliver personalized comfort, the Niro is your ultimate getaway vehicle.
Dial in to your ideal seat position and lumbar support level with the available 10-Way Power Driver's Seat. And the available Integrated Memory Seat (IMS) system conveniently remembers mirror and seat settings for up to two drivers.
The Niro is packed with available driver-assistive technologies to transform your drive. Plus exceptional audio and multiple charging optionsâ€”for a better environment, both inside and out.
The available Smart Cruise Control (SCC) adapts to your driving environment by automatically applying the brakes, or gas, to help maintain a predetermined distance from the vehicle in front of you.
The Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) monitors the position of your Niro. If the system detects you veering from your lane, without the turn signal on, it will alert you with audible and visual warnings.
Six standard airbags, including dual front, front-seat-mounted side, and full-length side curtain airbags, surround you and your passengers. The advanced airbag system also features high-tech sensors that help control airbag inflation.
Every Niro comes with active safety technologies that function automatically to help keep you on track and in control. Systems like the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), which helps reduce skidding, and Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), which offers increased steering control in harsh road conditions.
