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

Immense cargo hold
Comfortable ride
Great fuel economy estimates

Turbocharged engine delivers a rare combination of thrift and zest
Roomy interior with cavernous cargo capacity for this class
Rides comfortably yet handles corners athletically
Plentiful and thoughtful storage areas

Cons
Touchscreen can be finicky to use and lacks a separate tuning knob
Underwhelming base engine on the LX trim
