For an intelligent and sustainable driving experience, there's nothing like the 2018 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV). The Niro has a smart hybrid system that can be both fully electric in EV Mode or hybrid, and the spacious interior ensures you have room for both cargo and passengers. The exterior is aerodynamic and sleek, with a head-turning design that's bound to stand apart on the road.  

The 2018 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid is available at three trim levels: LX, EX, and EX Premium.


Powertrain and Performance

The Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid has a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with a full parallel hybrid system and an AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Motor. This powertrain is paired with a dual-clutch six-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic®. The 1.6-liter engine delivers up to 104 horsepower and 109 lb-ft of torque, but, when paired with the hybrid system, the total output rises to 139 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The Niro Plug-In Hybrid gets up to 110 city MPGe when properly equipped, saving you gas without sacrificing power.

Interior Design

The Niro seats up to five people comfortably and includes a number of features to make driving more enjoyable. For example, the dual-zone auto climate control system regulates the interior temperature, while cloth seating wraps you in comfort. There's also a 60/40 split folding rear seat that can be configured to improve storage space, and a Supervision Meter Cluster keeps you up to date about the Niro's performance and fuel consumption.

Safety Features

The Niro offers extensive safety features to help keep you and your family safe on the road. For example, there's a standard rear camera display to make it easier to reverse into tight spots. Autonomous Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Warning help to prevent damage and warn of potential collisions, while the Lane Keep Assist system ensures you don't accidently drift into other lanes. Plus, with a suite of airbags and Vehicle Stability Management, you'll have added peace of mind.

With incredible fuel efficiency, streamlined comfort, and wide-ranging safety technology, the 2018 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid is a boldly progressive car you'll be proud to own. Ready to test drive one? Stop by BillWalsh Kia and we'll get you behind the wheel.
