2022 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid Pros

For 2022, the Kia Niro returns with minor changes, the LXS comes standard with automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, remote start, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

2022 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid Model Highlights

At the heart of the Niro is a compact 1.6L 4-cylinder gasoline engine producing 104 horsepower. This engine alone would make the Niro a poor performer, but luckily there is an electric motor as well helping to motivate the vehicle. Combined with the electric motor, the Niro produces 139 horsepower and a very robust 195 foot-pounds of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels through a 6-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. Unlike most other hybrids, which use a continuously variable transmission, the Kia's dual clutch unit helps provide strong acceleration at the cost of a slight penalty to fuel economy. The tradeoff is worth it; the Niro doesn't feel anchored to the ground like some other hybrids, while still returning up to 105 mpge in combined city and highway driving and up to 26-miles of pure electric drive. The Kia Niro comes in three trims, LXS, EX, and EX Premium.

The base LX trim has fewer amenities than its siblings but still comes with all the notable features one would expect in a compact car or SUV these days. Standard features include an 8-inch color touch screen display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, auto high-beam, satellite radio, steering wheel mounted controls for the sound system and cruise control, two USB input jack, power windows and door locks, Smart Key with push button start, remote start, dual-zone automatic temperature control, power external mirrors and 16-inch wheels.

The EX-trim primarily adds fog lamps, heated and power folding mirrors, cloth and leather seats, 10-way power driver seat with power lumbar support, heated front seats, wireless phone charger, Smart Cruise Control with stop and go, and 7.0-inch display in gauge cluster.

The top-of-the-line EX Premium trim complete the features in lower trims with a power sunroof, leatherette seats, driver seat memory, 10.25 touch screen, GPS linked navigation system, reverse parking sensor, auto-dimming rearview mirror, wireless phone charger, traffic sign information with speed limiter, heated steering wheel, and heated/ventilated front seats.

Standard safety items on the Niro includes anti-lock brakes, front seat belts pretensioners, stability control, brake assist system, 7 airbags, and hill start control system. The LXS, EX, and EX Premium trims all add a Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) and Lane Following Assist (LFA), Blind Spot Collision Warning (BCW), Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist-Cyc (FCA-Cyc), Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW), Pedestrian Detection, Leading Vehicle Departure Alert (LVDA), and Driver Attention Warning (DAW) system.

The Kia Niro includes other optional equipment such as aluminum door scuff plates, crossbars, carpeted floor mats, cargo cover, electrochromic mirror, wheel locks, and high load cargo mat.

2022 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid Model News

The Niro competes with other small SUVs and crossover vehicles such as the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V. The Niro won't break the bank, while still offering far better mileage than any of its competitors. Like all Kia's, the Niro comes standard with all the basics one would expect from a compact car and at the other end of the spectrum, the Niro is positively loaded with the kind of items that were only sold in luxury cars a few years ago.
