2016 Chicago Auto Show - 2017 Kia Niro Hybrid
Another new SUV, this time with added battery power, from Kia.

Hybrids and SUVs have come hand-in-hand over the last few years and Kia is throwing its hat into the fray. Being one of the first debuts of the day, the Niro is a dedicated hybrid SUV which they call an HUV or Hybrid Utility Vehicle. First glance though, you probably wouldn't know that this is a hybrid. This is a good thing.
Other than some badges to suggest this is a hybrid, the Niro Hybrid looks like...your everyday SUV. Even with its not dull looks, the Niro Hybrid has some large goals. Thanks to a 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine and hybrid engine producing 146 engine, Kia wants the Niro to get a whopping 50 MPG!
The 2017 Kia Niro Hybrid will be available later in 2016.
