A hybrid with genuinely mass-appeal

The 2022 Kia Niro is an exclusively hybrid compact crossover SUV that delivers exceptional fuel efficiency without the polarizing style of some rivals that can be off-putting to some potential owners. The Niro appears to combine the best aspects of hatchback and SUV design to create a vehicle that’s perfect for all sorts of circumstances, whether you’re nipping around the streets of Gainesville, Buford, Cumming, and Duluth or commuting a little further to Atlanta or Athens.

Trim levels

There are five different trim levels to choose from in the 2022 Kia Niro family that offer something for a wide variety of different consumers and budgets, but there are also plug-in-hybrid and fully electric versions too. The whole hybrid lineup gets the same highly-efficient hybrid powertrain, so the trim levels are all about how much you want to spend on extra features and equipment. The first model in the family is the Niro LX, but most retail purchasers will probably look at higher trims which are the LXS, LXS Special Edition, Touring Special Edition, and the top-of-the-range EX Premium. Plug-in versions of the Niro come in LX, EX, and EX Premium trims.

Powertrain and fuel economy

2022 Kia Niro powertrain and fuel economy

Every version of the 2022 Kia Niro uses the same hybrid powertrain, but don’t forget that there are also plug-in-hybrid and full-electric versions of the Niro too. The regular Niro makes use of a 1.6-liter inline-four gas engine that’s mated to a 1.6 kWh battery and a 43 horsepower electric motor that produces a combined 139 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. The power is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Plug-in versions get a bigger battery and an electric-only range of up to 26 miles.

Despite all using the same hybrid powertrain, there are some sizeable differences in the fuel economy ratings between different trim levels, but they all still deliver stellar fuel economy. The most frugal version is the entry-level Niro LX which is rated at 53 mpg in the city, 48 mpg on the highway, and 50 mpg combined. The Touring Special Edition is the least efficient version, but it’s still rated at a sensational 46/40/43 mpg, respectively.

Features and equipment

The Niro LX is a great price, and it does offer that incredible fuel economy, but non-fleet customers will probably start at the LXS or higher most of the time. Even so, the base LX version still comes with standard 16-inch alloy wheels, a 6-speaker audio system, a rear-view camera, cruise control, a USB port, a 12-volt power outlet, Drive Mode System w/ Shift Paddles, keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
