5 reasons to buy the 2023 Kia Niro

1. Fuel-sipping performance

If you're looking for an SUV that can help you enjoy more time on the road and less downtime at the pumps, the 2023 Kia Niro is a hybrid worth considering. This model sports a 1.6L four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that creates a combined 139 hp. Pairing with the hybrid powertrain is a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel drive, which helps the 2023 Niro return an EPA-estimated 53 mpg in the city and 54 mpg on the highway.

This SUV is ideal for long-distance commuters, frequent road trippers, and everyone in between.

2. Cushioned ride

The 2023 Kia Niro is tuned for comfort, providing a cushioned ride over bumps and other road imperfections. This engineering makes the Niro well-suited for city driving, where potholes often lurk around every corner. The SUV's steering is also lightweight, making this Kia enjoyable to drive with its easy maneuverability. You and your passengers are in for a nice ride in this hybrid SUV.

3. Handsome cabin

The Kia Niro was fully redesigned for its 2023 model year and features an attractive interior design with a fresh, modern look. The SUV's cabin includes thoughtfully placed controls, making it easy for the driver to access and adjust the Niro's many systems. There is also comfortable seating for five passengers with generous legroom in the front and rear rows (41.5 inches and 39.8 inches, respectively), ensuring this hybrid SUV is one you'll want to climb into.

4. Useful storage

Whether loading up luggage or making room for grocery bags, the 2023 Kia Niro offers plenty of practical storage to fit your lifestyle. With all seats in place, you'll have 22.8 cu-ft of cargo volume to carry your daily essentials. Folding the 60/40-split second row opens up 63.7 cu-ft for special trips, like a day on the slopes or a weekend at the campground. The 2023 Niro also includes a multi-level loading floor to help you maximize space when you need it most.

5. Latest tech

Are you searching for the latest in-car technology? You're in for a treat with the Kia Niro. Wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto connectivity are standard on the 2023 model, providing seamless smartphone integration as you drive. An eight-inch touchscreen display is found in the base level, while EX and higher trims include a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen display, navigation, and a wireless charging pad. In addition, there is no shortage of driver assistance features with standard automatic emergency braking, blind-spot detection, rear-cross traffic collision avoidance, and lane-following assist on every model.
