This car has a lot of interesting and useful features but and it is a big but it does have some basic safety issues. Because of this I would not recommend it to any other user, though from my own perspective I am content to live with them in the short term until I can contact Kia and inform them of the issues. Hopefully they are already aware of them.

Love the gas mileage

by Happy Kia owner from Fort Washington MD | October 04, 2019

I traded in my Volvo XC60 2015 for this hybrid. I wanted a all electric Tesla, but didn’t have Tesla money. My X husband suggested I look at this car because it was higher up which maKes it easy to get in and out. The Volvo was running me $50 a week in gas and the Kia runs me about $100 month. This alone saves me money and you wouldn’t compare a Volvo to a Kia, overall I’m happy that I purchased the car and have over 50,000 miles on a 2018 Kia Niro Hybrid and have not had any mechanical issues with the car.

Love my Kia Niro Hybrid!

The car is great. The customer service has been great. Great warrantee. I have owned the car for 2 months, and am still getting used to the lag of the hybrid engine when I am at a full stop and put my foot on the accelerator to go -- but this seems to be a common issue with current hybrid motors, and is not particular to the brand. I am committed to spending my money in support of green initiatives, so I prefer to "get used to it" rather than view this as "an issue". Otherwise, really enjoying my new car!
