Fun and economic, warms the butt and does not burn a hole in your pocketbook.

So far the car is great. I seem to average around 45 mpg and I drive mostly highway. I haven't had any problems with the car. I love that the battery disconnects if you leave a door ajar or a light on so your battery does not run all the way out. I find both the driver's seat and passenger seat comfortable. My husband and I are both 6’ and plus sized and we feel the car has room for both of us in the front, which was important to us.

The Kia Niro is a great buy.

This car get excellent gas mileage; about 45-50 miles/gallon. It is user friendly and has navigation with backup camera. It has been very reliable and is comfortable on short trips. It is a smaller car so you cannot haul a lot of items. It probably would not be comfortable for cross country road trips due to the size and it is lower to the ground than SUVs or larger vehicles.

Sporty exterior, comfortable and responsive ride.

The Kia Niro eco-hybrid is probably the best car I have had. It is sporty, 100% reliable, comfortable, great response, and the gas mileage is amazing!! Around town driving the mpg is 52-56. The highway long no stop driving mpg is 61-63. 4. I do not think I will ever go back to anything but an eco hybrid. No plugging in, it has a self sustaining battery. Truly amazing.
