Stylish efficiency

The 2022 Kia Niro is a stylish, practical, and desirable compact crossover SUV that strongly emphasizes fuel efficiency without being preachy or polarizing. The Niro is an exclusively electrified model that comes in hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all-electric versions, which makes it one of the most efficient ways you can get you and your family around Tuscaloosa and Birmingham, and it takes some of the financial pain out of commuting to Montgomery, Huntsville or further afield.

Trim levels

You have five different versions of the 2022 Kia Niro to choose from that cover a pretty wide variety of different drivers and budgets, and that’s before you even start to consider the plug-in-hybrid and fully electric derivatives. Every 2022 Niro employs the same highly-efficient hybrid powertrain, so the various trim levels come down to what features you want and how much you want to spend for higher levels of standard equipment. The entry-level model in the 2022 Niro lineup is the LX, and from there, you go to the LXS, LXS Special Edition, Touring Special Edition and finally to the range-topping EX Premium. Plug-in versions of the 2022 Niro are available in LX, EX and EX Premium variants.

Powertrain and performance

2022 Kia Niro powertrains and performance

All 2022 Niro models, apart from the available Niro EV, use the same hybrid powertrain, but there are standard and plug-in versions of this powertrain to choose between. The standard Niro Hybrid has a 1.6-liter inline-four gasoline internal combustion engine coupled with a 1.6 kWh battery and a 43-horsepower electric motor, which together produce a combined 139 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. The power goes to the front wheels through a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, while the 2022 Kia Niro Plug-in-Hybrid gets a larger 8.9-kWh battery that helps deliver an electric-only driving range of up to 26 miles.

There are notable differences in the fuel economy ratings between different trim levels and between the Hybrid and PHEV versions of the Niro, but they all still deliver outstanding fuel economy. The most economical model is the entry-level Niro LX which the EPA rates at 53 mpg in the city, 48 mpg on the highway and 50 mpg combined. The Touring Special Edition is the least efficient version, but even this one is still rated at a sensational 46/40/43 mpg, respectively. The Niro Plug-in-Hybrid is rated at 48/44/46 mpg, respectively, but the ability to run for up to 26 miles on purely electric power means a combined MPGe rating of 105.

Features and equipment

The Niro LX has an extremely affordable starting MSRP, and it’s also cheap to run thanks to its incredible fuel economy, but even the most basic version comes standard with a very decent level of standard equipment. Even the entry-level Niro LX comes with standard 16-inch alloy wheels, a 6-speaker audio system, a rear-view camera, cruise control, a USB port, a 12-volt power outlet, Drive Mode System w/ Shift Paddles, keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. So if that’s the base model, you can imagine what you get with the top-of-the-line EX Premium.
