In pre-production form, the second-generation Kia Niro Hybrid shows a lot of promise. Not only is it competitively priced, but it’s also generously equipped and spacious inside. That said, we suspect the PHEV model, with its punchier performance, lower running costs and ability to run for extended period of times on electric power will be the pick of the range.
The trimSee full equipment
This range-topping trim gets you loads of kit, including a sunroof, an electric tailgate, heated seats in the front and back, and a heated steering wheel. It’s also the only Niro EV trim available with funky contrast colour rear pillars. It’s very pricey, though.
The engineSee full engine specs
All versions of the Niro EV have a single 201bhp electric motor, which drives the front wheels and is fed by a 64.8kWh (usable capacity) battery. Acceleration is sprightly and a range of 250 miles on a charge is realistic as long as you drive gently and the weather is mild.
