You can’t help but notice more and more electrified vehicles on the roads and highways of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Birmingham, Montgomery, and Huntsville these days. The 2024 Kia Niro Hybrid is a second-generation vehicle that’s been a gas/electric hybrid model since its launch. Now available in hybrid and plug-in hybrid forms, the 2024 Niro has a new look, new safety tech, and greater efficiency, making it an even more attractive package than it was already.
As mentioned, the 2024 Kia Niro Hybrid is available in standard and plug-in hybrid versions. There are five different trim levels to choose between, although the Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid is only available in two choices. The most affordable model in the Niro Hybrid lineup is the LX, followed by the EX, EX Touring, SX, and SX Touring trim levels.
If you want an even more efficient Niro than the standard model, the plug-in hybrid version of the 2024 model is available in EX and SX Touring trim levels. All models send their power to the front wheels exclusively because there’s no all-wheel-drive option, which fits with the ultra-efficient ethos of the Niro that’s set it apart from the competition since day one.
The 2024 Kia Niro Hybrid is a fantastic option for urban drivers who want SUV practicality and exceptional fuel economy but have no pretensions about going off-road. If most new vehicle shoppers think practically about how they use their vehicles, it’s clear the Kia Niro Hybrid makes a lot of sense. At the heart of the new Niro is a hybrid powertrain that couples a 1.6-liter inline-four gas engine with a 32-kW electric motor to produce a combined 139 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque.
The powertrain delivers an excellent urban driving experience for the town or city, but the headline has to be the combined 53 mpg EPA fuel economy rating that’s three mpg better than the previous incarnation. The Niro Plug-in Hybrid gets a larger 62-kW electric motor and an 11.1-kWh lithium-ion polymer battery. Those upgrades increase the output to 180 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. It also increases the electric-only driving range from 26 miles to 33 miles.
As well as getting you more miles to the gallon than the competition, the 2024 Kia Niro Hybrid also delivers impressive standard features at every level. Even the most affordable Niro Hybrid LX comes with standard 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights with high beam assist, remote keyless entry, dual-zone climate control, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
However, you only need to step up one level to the EX to get upgraded to a 10.25-inch touchscreen, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, voice recognition, wireless phone charging, push-button start, remote start, ambient lighting, leather and cloth seat trim, a 10-way power driver’s seat and heated front seats. The EX also adds to the standard safety tech of the LX with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Navigation-Based Smart Cruise Control w/ Stop & Go, Highway Driving Assist, and rear parking sensors.
The 2024 Kia Niro Hybrid is a compact crossover SUV that makes sense. It has everything urban drivers need and doesn’t ask them to pay for things they don’t need, and it also delivers the stellar fuel economy that’s so important in the current climate.
