Expert reviews: 

The Niro isn't our favorite car to drive, but it's perfect for drivers who care as much about fuel efficiency as they do about their budget.

Pros
Efficiently rated up to 52 mpg,
affordable,
practicality of a crossover.

Cons
Some trims lack basic amenities,
uninspiring performance,
plug-in hybrid has limited EV range.
