2018 Kia Niro – Fantastic Appearance

It comes in three separate trims, customized to the specifications of all customers. However, the 2018 Kia Niro only qualifies to be a crossover in the best possible superficial interpretation. Though it is about 10 inches shorter than conventional crossovers, this is one advantage it has over the standard bearers as it contributes greatly to the featherweight 3108 pounds mass. The body seems truncated and hits a sweet spot in a fashionable and handsome style. Exterior outlook takes advantage of the pronounced ambiguity, featuring a double-box wagon form and a ribbon of black plastic that rings the bottom edge of the body.

Comfortable Cockpit with Stylish Materials

The 2018 Kia Niro boasts of a comfortable cockpit with stylish materials, impressive quality and also intuitive controls. In the cabin is a dual-zone automated climate control, satellite radio as well as a 7-inch long touchscreen that comes independently packed with Android auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. The only overt indication of cheapness is concealed in the cargo area, featuring some sort of ill-fitting flimsy panel. However, the seat height is situated in the gray area, somewhere between crossovers and cars. With these, the 2018 Kia Niro has just the perfect amount of luxuries to be considered as well-equipped.

Engine Output

This model will be paired with six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission gearbox. The meager power leaves this hybrid flat-footed whenever you step on the accelerator. Overall, the powertrain accelerates the entire body mass both longitudinally and rationally while moving the crossover down the road. The Niro is trendy and understated with a subtle air of eco-credibility that comes with unmatched EPA fuel-economy ratings.
