Expert Reviews

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.

The 2020 Kia Niro's #5 ranking is based on its score within the Hybrid and Electric SUVs category. It was a finalist for our 2020 Best Hybrid or Electric SUV for the Money award. Currently the Kia Niro has a score of 7.7 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 16 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Excellent fuel economy
Spacious interior when compared with subcompact SUVs
Intuitive infotainment system

Cons
Not available with all-wheel drive
Interior not as upscale as rivals’
Unimpressive acceleration

The 2020 Kia Niro is a compelling eco-friendly car for those opposed to Prius-like looks.

Pros
Oh so frugal
Comfortable, roomy interior
Excellent value
SUV-ish looks

Cons
No AWD option
Light on thrills
High-trim version uses more fuel
Automatic emergency braking should be standard

Fresh-faced and better equipped, the 2020 CR-V is now an even more compelling choice among compact SUVs. Aside from the styling improvements versus last year's model, Honda is now offering a hybrid powertrain which consists of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and two electric motors; the base 2.4-liter four-cylinder has been dropped and the previously optional turbocharged 1.5-liter engine is now standard on all non-hybrid CR-Vs. More standard and optional equipment enhances the CR-V's value for 2020, starting with a suite of driver-assistance features that includes automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control that will be standard on all models.

Pros
Classy interior trimmings, two fuel-efficient powertrains, voluminous cargo hold.

Cons
Lackluster infotainment performance, could be quicker in acceleration testing, limited towing capacity.

By:
