My 2018 Kia hybrid: the keep lane assist is great.

I have a 2018 Kia Niro. It is a very nice hybrid vehicle. It is very comfortable to drive. I had a Prius before this. The Kia is probably better than the Prius. The Kia has everything including cooling seats and heated seats, I love these features. I love the keep lane assist. It will actually keep you in the lane if you veer off by turning the wheel! It handles very smoothly. It is very quiet. It gets great gas mileage! So far it has been reliable but I only have 12,000 miles on it. Problems are few. I wish it were a tiny bit bigger.

The Niro is a great size vehicle, with smooth ride and unbelievable gas savings!

The Drivability of the Niro is top notch. For being a hybrid there is plenty of pick up and very little sound so it's a peaceful ride. The gas savings is so worth the price tag and I can make road trips without having to map out so many gas stops along the way. The interior is well thought out and space is sufficient for a weekend road trip for four. The steering wheel and controls are accessible and intuitive and the control screen is appropriately sized for the car.

An interesting detail is a backup camera which I love, especially because I live on a street where I have to parallel park every day. The camera is very accurate.

My car is very roomy, comes with a backup camera which I love, and is all around very convenient to use. It has a button unlock feature, and I love that if you leave the key in the vehicle it will beep to let you know you forgot it. Also because the car is so quiet sometimes you might leave it on, if you leave the car while it is on it also beeps. The only thing I do not like about my car is the dealership where we bought it because they provide mediocre service.
