More electrified vehicles appear on the roads and highways of Bassett, Danville, and Greensboro every day, but few deliver the fuel economy and value of the 2024 Kia Niro Hybrid. The 2024 Niro Hybrid is the second generation of a vehicle that’s been hybrid-only since day one and is now available in hybrid and plug-in hybrid forms. For the 2024 model year, the Niro has a bold look, new safety tech, and even greater fuel efficiency. The standout model in its class has managed to get a whole lot better.
The 2024 Kia Niro Hybrid is available in standard and plug-in hybrid versions, with more trim-level choices for non-plug-in models. The Niro Hybrid is available in five trim levels, while the Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid has two trim level options. The entry-level model in the 2024 Kia Niro Hybrid lineup is the LX, and from there, the range goes to the EX, EX Touring, SX, and range-topping SX Touring trim levels.
The Niro Hybrid is incredibly efficient, but if you want the extra efficiency and an element of electric-only driving, the plug-in hybrid version of the 2024 model is available in the EX and SX Touring trim levels. Every Niro Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid version sends its power exclusively to the front wheels. There’s no all-wheel-drive option for the Niro, which fits perfectly with the ultra-efficient mentality of Niro philosophy, marking it as something special since its launch.
The 2024 Kia Niro Hybrid is designed for urban drivers who want the style and practicality of an SUV, along with outstanding fuel economy, but who are also honest enough with themselves to admit that off-roading isn’t on their schedule. If you know most of your driving will be on the pavement in the town or city, the Kia Niro Hybrid makes a ton of sense. Under the hood of the new Niro is a hybrid powertrain that employs a 1.6-liter inline-four gas engine paired with a 32-kW electric motor for a combined 139 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque.
The hybrid system offers an excellent urban driving experience for the town or city, but the combined 53 mpg EPA fuel economy rating, which is three mpg better than it used to be, has to be the main headline. The Niro Plug-in Hybrid features the same engine, but this time it’s paired with a 62-kW electric motor and an 11.1-kWh lithium-ion polymer battery. The result is a combined output of 180 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque and an electric-only driving range of 33 miles, another improvement over the previous Niro.
The striking new exterior styling, the impressive interior, and the staggering fuel economy are enough to grab the attention of compact crossover shoppers. However, we should pay attention to the generous standard features found at every level with the 2024 Kia Niro Hybrid and PHEV. The entry-level Niro Hybrid LX gets standard 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, 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.
The EX is one grade higher and costs a little more, but it upgrades you to a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with SiriusXM Satellite Radio, voice recognition, wireless phone charging, and push-button start. Standard EX features also include remote start, ambient lighting, leather and cloth upholstery, a 10-way power driver’s seat, and heated front seats. The EX also gets a few more standard safety features such as Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Navigation-Based Smart Cruise Control w/ Stop & Go, Highway Driving Assist, and rear parking sensors.
Our roads and highways are full of compact crossover SUVs these days, but few make as much sense in the urban jungle as the 2024 Kia Niro Hybrid.
