Could the All-New 2017 Kia Niro be Your Vehicular Hero?

No matter how you slice it, there sure is an awful lot to appreciate about the 2017 Niro, Kia's all-new compact hybrid crossover.

"Such as what?" you wonder.

Allow Kelley Blue Book Senior Associate Video Editor Zach Vlasuk to explain; his critique of the Niro is as follows:

Beneath the nose of the Niro, a 1.6-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine works in tandem with an electric motor and lithium-polymer battery. Coupling with a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, the Niro's hybrid drivetrain is rated at a respectable 139 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque.

It's arguably in the realm of fuel economy, however, where the Niro really shines. When had on the entry-level FE trim, for example, it'll achieve an incredible 50 mpg combined (52 city/49 highway).
