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

By:

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

By: 
edmunds.com

The official line is that the Mokka is a traditional SUV, with butch looks and the option of four-wheel drive, whereas the Crossland X is intended to be a more family-friendly choice.
To that end, all versions are front-wheel drive, which means there isn’t a driveshaft to the rear that robs the interior of usable space. The Crossland X also has deeper side windows than the Mokka to help create an airier feel inside, and it has smaller wheels, which have the potential to improve space, ride comfort and fuel efficiency.

The Vauxhall Crossland X is practical and comfortable, but it’s let down by an underwhelming driving experience.

Pros
Spacious and comfortable
Eager 1.2-litre petrol engine
Plenty of standard safety kit

Cons
Is it a genuine SUV?
Steering too sensitive
Wind noise at speed

By: 
carbuyer.co.uk

Crossland X is not at all, an off-roader and is aimed, quite simply, at two markets: one is the young family and the other is the older couple whose children have left home and who might want to downsize to a sensible, smaller, yet still practical vehicle.

Pros
Sensible and practical family car
A range of customisation options
Large choice of engines

Cons
Tough competition, but will come out fighting
