With seating for up to five and plenty of cargo space, the Niro is versatile as well. There is a total of 1,543.3 liters of cargo space in all within the KIA Niro 2019. That is a lot for the compact crossover segment and is better than nearly all competitors. Hybrid or not. Loading is generally easier as well, thanks to a lower load floor than most others offer. Buyers of the Kia Niro will be impressed with the upscale interior design and its excellent versatility and roominess.

The KIA Niro 2019 has two powertrain options. The Niro Hybrid is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor. A six-speed direct-shift automatic gearbox powers the front wheels. A small lithium-ion battery pack stores energy gained from both regenerative braking and the engine. The Niro Hybrid has received fuel economy ratings of 4.5 l/100km in the city and 4.8 l/100km on the highway. The Niro Plug-in Hybrid has the same setup but includes a more powerful electric motor and a much larger battery pack. This gives the Niro PHEV an all-electric range of about 42 kilometers per charge.
