When will the 2017 Kia Niro be available?
Kia attracted a significant amount of attention at the 2016 Chicago auto show with the reveal of the all-new Kia Niro. This special hybrid crossover promises to deliver impressive fuel economy ratings with a fun-to-drive nature and stylish looks. So when will the 2017 Kia Niro be available?
2017 Kia Niro Release Date
The 2017 Kia Niro will be making its debut at dealerships throughout the country during the first quarter of 2017.
Kia has designed this special vehicle to bridge the gap between the hybrid electric and crossover classes. Powering the Niro will be a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that is paired with an electric motor and a 1.56-kWh lithium ion polymer battery. The two systems work together to create 139 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. Very respectable numbers for a hybrid power system. But fuel economy is where the Niro is really expected to shine. Kia has designed the crossover to earn up to 50 miles per gallon in combined fuel economy.
The special battery pack designed for the crossover is both powerful and dense, allowing the Niro to save size without sacrificing performance. And don’t think the Niro is lacking in performance. The power from the hybrid system is seamlessly transferred to the front wheels, giving the crossover sporty performance and adding to the driving fun of the Niro.
