It has only been a couple of years since Kia shocked the world by introducing its new hybrid crossover. The vehicle was so impressive that it even broke the Guinness World Record for the lowest fuel consumption by a hybrid vehicle as it traveled cross country from LA to NYC. Now, two years later, the 2019 Kia Niro in Carrollton TX is just as efficient and just as popular.
While very little has changed since the model’s introduction – because it hasn’t needed to change anything – the Kia Niro remains as impressive as ever. With incredibly affordable price points for a vehicle of its nature and plenty both inside and out to get excited about, it makes a great option for any driver looking to save money at the gas station while having enough space to fit a combination of cargo and friends.
There is one thing that has changed for the 2019 model year, and it’s actually pretty exciting. Last year, there was a Niro Graphite Edition special trim level that was expected only to run while supplies last. Its popularity has led to the top brass at Kia to turn the special edition model into a trim level of its own, this year being renamed to the S Touring. The new trim level slides right between the EX mid-level trim and the top-of-the-line Touring level.
The most exciting specification the 2019 Kia Niro has to offer is, of course, its hybrid fuel economy. Regardless of trim level, you know you’re going to be getting something special in terms of fuel efficiency. The most efficient model is the base Niro FE, at 52 mpg city and 49 mpg highway. The LX & EX both achieve 51/46 respectively, while the S Touring & Touring achieve 46/40. What the top trims give up in economy they certainly make up in content.
