I love this car its by far the nicest car i have owned. We took it on a 1000 kilometer trip last summer and got 5.9 litres to 100k going 120 kph. when we took smaller highways at say 95 to 105 we got around 5.1 per 100k. Thats about 44 us mpg. That may not be stellar mileage but its better than the cars that we have owned before. It gets better mileage ln the city by the way .

Fantastic commuter car!

I bought my Niro Touring new during Labor Day weekend, 2018. My 26 mile commute each way to work takes typically 1-1.5 hours. Traffic is stop-and-go and is at times nothing less than horrendous. The Niro has proved to be a perfect car for this type of commute. I average around 52 mpg. With 22,500 miles on it, the car has been amazingly dependable. No problems experienced at all. It’s very comfortable.

It is a car worth considering.

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.
