Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Kia Niro Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid breathe new life into the hybrid segment, with a practical wagon shape and excellent interior you’d never know was a hybrid.

Pros
Utility vehicle styling
Good noise suppression
Handsome, intuitive interior
40-mpg-plus fuel economy
Plug-in version priced well

Cons
AWD unavailable
Sluggish acceleration at speed
No crash-test data yet
Plug-in range now only average

The 2018 Kia Niro ranked #5 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Kia Niro has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 14 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Magnificent fuel economy
Spacious, comfortable seats
Generous cargo capacity
Upscale cabin

Cons
Less athletic than rivals
Not available with AWD
High base price

The most significant change for the 2018 Niro is the addition of lane keeping assist, replacing the previous lane departure warning system. It's included in the Advanced Technology package available on LX and EX trims, and it's standard on the top Touring trim.

PROS
Impressive fuel economy from the base trim model
One of the more affordable hybrids in the segment
Batteries are hidden under the rear seat and don't affect cargo space

CONS
Feature-laden Touring trim sacrifices fuel efficiency
Less cargo space than most rivals
Feels lazy when driving in the default Eco mode
All-wheel drive isn't offered despite crossover styling
