What Car? says...
If you've ever felt the pressure to live up to a high-achieving parent, you'll understand the situation that the Kia Niro EV is in. You see, it's a direct replacement for the e-Niro, which was the first electric car to win the overall What Car? Car of the Year award.
What made the Kia e-Niro so good? Well, along with its cousin – the rather less practical Hyundai Kona Electric – it was the first electric vehicle (EV) to democratise a 250+ mile range between charges. Yes, various Tesla models could go even further, but not by much – and the e-Niro cost a fraction of the money to buy.
Over the next few pages, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about the Kia Niro EV, including what it’s like to drive, how practical it is and what equipment you get with different versions. We'll also tell you which trim we think is the best option.
Finally, before you buy any new car, don't forget to check out our free What Car? New Car Buying service to find out how much you could save off the asking price. You won’t have to do any haggling and there are some fantastic new electric SUV deals.
