Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Kia e Niro estate?

Although the regular petrol-powered Kia Niro has been appraised for safety by Euro NCAP, this electric version hasn’t been put through the test.

You get a reasonable number of active safety aids to help you avoid an accident in the first place, though, including automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assistance. If you want blind spot monitoring or rear cross-traffic alert (the latter warns you about approaching cars when you’re backing out onto a road), you’ll need to upgrade to '4+' trim.

As for security, you get an alarm, deadlocks and locking wheel nuts as standard.

What are the most common problems with a used Kia e Niro estate?

Is a used Kia e Niro estate reliable?

Kia, as a brand, came seventh out of 31 in the 2020 What Car? Reliability Survey, one place behind Hyundai but above most other electric car manufacturers. We don't have any data for the e-Niro itself.

Just like all Kias, the e-Niro comes with a class-leading and transferable seven-year warranty from new as standard (limited to 100,000 miles).
