View New Kia Niro Inventory

Kia Motor Company may have just set the bar for the ultimate car on the market right now and that car has finally made its way to the Colorado Springs area. The All-New, 2019 Kia Niro has a starting price of $23,490 and is the vehicle that is pushing through the automotive industry's conventional expectations. While it looks like just another crossover, the Kia Niro is a crossover hybrid that set the Guinness World Records™ for Lowest Fuel Consumption. The Niro completed a 3,715.4-mile trip from Los Angeles to New York City averaging 76.6 mpg. That is just 4.1 tanks of gas!

The new Kia Niro comes in 5 trim levels including FE, LX, EX, S Touring, and Touring. All trim levels are worth considering and come with nearly all the greatest features you could want in a vehicle and a crossover. Can't find the trim you are looking for? We can get it for you! Orth Hedrick, VP and product planner for KMA said, "We set out to build a vehicle that offers real-world utility, great looks, and fantastic mileage, and setting the Guinness World Record™ title confirms our achievement." Now, let's take it inside the vehicle and show you just what the Niro is all about.

Interior & Convenience

To start, the Kia Niro still maintains great comfort for all passengers decked in cloth for the FE and LX models. Leather options are available for higher trim levels. For additional comfort, potential owners can upgrade to higher trim levels to receive the heated seat option. Another fantastic feature available for the first three trim levels is the 6-way manually adjustable lumbar support for the driver, which will ensure added comfort.

As far as entertainment, the Kia Niro has everything you will need for long distance world record breaking road trips. All models have SiriusXM/Radio audio system, 6 speakers with dash mounted tweeters, a rear camera display with Dynamic Guidelines, Bluetooth wireless tech, USB/auxiliary inputs and 12-volt charging ports. Get more by upgrading to higher trim levels. Optional features include blind spot detector, rear-cross traffic alert, lane departure warning.

Safety Features

The Kia Niro didn't waste any time deciding what safety features they would include for the Niro. For all trim levels, the safety features include Anti-Lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Control, Vehicle Stability Management, Traction Control System, Brake Assist System, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution, Hill-Start Assist Control, and enough airbags to float a tanker.

Engine, Powertrain, MPG

The Kia Niro has a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder with 104 horsepower and paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. This engine is a gas direct inject engine, but it isn't the only type of engine in this vehicle. The electric motor sits at 240 volts with 43 horsepower at 125 lb-ft of torque. When the hybrid system is combined, it is configured to a full parallel hybrid system with 139 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The hybrid system configuration has a lithium-ion polymer battery at 42 kilowatts with 240 volts. No doubt, the Kia Niro has the gas and battery power to do the 3,700-mile trip across the country. On this engine, the FE level can get 52/49/50 on mpg, the LX and EX get 51/46/49 mpg, and both touring editions can accomplish 46/40/43 mpg.

Cargo Space

What is a road trip in a crossover vehicle without the appropriate storage and cargo space? Although the Niro is a crossover, it can get at least 19.4 cubic feet of cargo space when fully occupied. If you choose to fold that seats down, the cargo space expands to 54.5 cubic feet of space. That's enough room for all your dogs and suitcases.
