Introducing the Niro. A different approach to what a hybrid crossover can be, the Niro FE achieves an EPA-est. 50 mpg combined and a near-600-mile range. And its high-efficiency 1.6L GDI engine and smooth-transitioning dual-clutch automatic transmission deliver pure joy behind the wheel – everything you need to plan the perfect escape.
The Niro is the no-compromise vehicle. Thoughtfully designed to combine the benefits of the crossover and hybrid worlds. Like the forward-looking engineering and optimized fuel economy of a hybrid. And the versatile design and practicality of a crossover. It’s the high-style, high-MPG adventure vehicle made for the no-compromise driver.
Unlike hybrids with continuous variable transmissions (CVT), the Niro comes with a highly responsive, smooth-shifting dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) that gives the Niro a fun-to-drive feel missing from the competition. Plus, it offers ample interior space you wouldn’t expect from a hybrid.
Thanks to its hybrid-optimizing powertrain, the Niro achieves superior fuel economy and range for its segment. And its refined exterior styling, with sculpted lines and an aerodynamic shape, sets the Niro apart from the rest.
Niro is not available with All-Wheel Drive (AWD). That's right! With Niro, you get a front-wheel drive system that is more than capable of tackling backcountry roads and snowy weather. Niro is also equipped with 6.3 inches of ground clearance and a rear-wheel multi-link suspension that provides a stable ride during quick turns and adverse road conditions. And last-but-not-least? Front-wheel drive results in a lighter vehicle which means better fuel economy for your Niro.
