There's Plenty to Go the Distance Out of Ramsey, NJ in the New 2018 Kia Niro

Coming off a 2017 redesign, the latest Kia hybrid crossover continues to make the grade in a gamut of trims for the long haul from FE and LX to EX and top-tier Touring. But what takes our automaker's new compact SUV the extra mile?

Right out the gate, from prominent radiator grille to striking LED positioning lights and rear spoiler, 2018 Kia Niro does more than look the part. It promises energetic drive-time enjoyment for all manner of excursions, from that day trip to Spring Valley or Fair Lawn to your getaway to Mahwah or Chestnut Ridge.

A six-speed dual-clutch auto transmission with Sportmatic technology smooths shifting, helping you take advantage of 195 pound-feet of torque to make quick work of diverse terrain and inclines. Plus, the SUV's Parallel Hybrid System eliminates the need to locate nearby electric charging stations along the way, as it incorporates a spirited 139 net-horsepower, 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine. All in all, in models like Kia Niro FE, you can count on up to 52 MPG city, 49 MPG highway, and 50 MPG combined according to EPA estimates. That means far fewer trips to the pump.

The Kia commitment to safety is also on proud display. Available driver-assist elements in Kia Niro include Blind-Spot Detection and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Change Assist and a Lane Keep Assist System, Smart Cruise Control, a Forward Collision Warning System with Autonomous Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Detection, and a front and rear parking assist system. That means intelligent help remaining aware of other vehicles, staying on course, staying at a safe distance from and avoiding obstacles, and slipping into that premium spot at your destination.

What's more, the hybrid SUV's EPA-estimated 101-cubic-foot interior remains inviting and accommodating. You'll find your choice of cloth, cloth-and-leather, and leather seating appointments, optionally heated and ventilated in front, 7- and 8-inch UVO touchscreen infotainment options, standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, available Voice-Command Navigation, and more.

These elements aren't all to which you have to look forward.
