The 2017 Kia Niro is the first-ever model year for this hybrid crossover that is absolutely taking the vehicle industry by storm, with its irresistible combination of fuel economy, cargo space, fun design and eco-friendly features. Tie that up with the ribbon that is Kia’s exclusive technology – UVO3 eServices with streaming audio, navigation, and more – and you have a vehicle that is here to stay and dominate the hybrid market for years to come.

We’ll discuss what sets the various trim levels apart for the 2017 Niro, but first, some of their shared features:

  • 54.5 cubic feet for cargo.
  • 139 horsepower.
  • UVO3 in all five trim levels.
  • More than 40 mpg for all trim levels.

Now, as to the differences: The base FE trim of the Niro gets a class-leading 50 combined miles per gallon, while also providing six speakers, tech like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for syncing with smartphones, and safety features like Rear Camera Display.

The LX and EX trims ramp up the intensity with the same audio and tech features, but with new features like heated front seats in the EX trim, and available safety features like Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane Departure Warning System. They also still get extraordinary fuel economy, with 49 combined mpg.

While the base trim and the mid-level trims of the 2017 Kia Niro are certainly nice, if you would like the best available technology and interior climate control, then the Touring & Touring Launch trims provide heated front seats standard, with the Touring trim also giving you the ability to cool down with ventilated front seats. Plus, the Touring trims still give you 43 combined mpg and a leap up to an 8-inch touchscreen with voice-command navigation. However, no matter which trim level you choose, the 2017 Kia Niro gives you class-leading fuel savings, solid performance, nice cargo room, and next-level tech!
