Black Kia Niro from the front sitting side on

Introduced in 2016, the Kia Niro entered the competitive crossover market with plenty to set it apart from the crowd. The standout difference was the fact that the model came equipped with an economical, efficient and clean 1.6-litre petrol hybrid engine – the first of its kind in an SUV. Not only that, but this particular engine is self-charging through regenerative braking, meaning there was no need for installation of a home-charging unit or regular visits to public charging stations.

Since this first edition, the Niro lineup has been joined by both a plug-in hybrid option and a fully electric model, offering even cleaner and more economical motoring. It also resulted in the Niro being able to compete with a wider range of competitors, making it a high-quality alternative to everything from the Hyundai Ioniq to the Peugeot 3008 and the Toyota Prius.

In addition to its environmental credentials, the Kia Niro offers an impressive level of practicality that appeals to a wide range of motorists. The vehicle boasts ample interior space, making it ideal for families tackling the school run or those who require extra room for weekend adventures away. It comes equipped with some of the latest advancements in automotive technology, enhancing both its functionality and driving experience. 

The Kia Niro also offers a variety of trim levels to suit different needs and preferences, each complementing the various power options available. Whether you’re interested in the base hybrid model or looking to go fully electric, there’s a used Niro that fits your requirements.

Kia Niro updates and facelifts

The launch of the Kia Niro in 2016 represented a unique proposition in the sector, being the first hybrid powered option on the market. This was subsequently joined by plug-in hybrid (in 2017) and all-electric (2019) options, building on the reputation of the vehicle. The arrival of the second-generation Niro in 2022 saw a refreshed aesthetic, greater size, and more technology than before. In fact, the vehicle would go on to be named the 2019 Affordable Electric Car of the Year and Small SUV of the Year award in 2022 with Auto Express, as well as Car Buyer’s 2023 Car of the Year shortly after launch.

Practicality and style of the car

Sitting within the Kia lineup between popular models like the Ceed and the iconic Sportage, the Niro is a compact crossover designed to appeal to those seeking a combination of efficiency and practicality. With a boot space ranging from 324 to 451 litres, depending on the trim selected, the Niro will ensure you have plenty of storage for daily needs.

Beyond boot space, the Niro's interior is designed to ensure that passengers, whether seated in the front or the rear, have a comfortable and spacious experience. The cabin offers plenty of head and legroom throughout, allowing everyone to relax during both short commutes and longer journeys. Adding to its family-friendly credentials further, the Niro comes with ISOFIX anchor points on the rear outer seats. This simplifies the process of fitting child seats, making it an especially convenient choice for those with young children.

The Niro boasts a large tailgate that facilitates easy loading and unloading. The minimal loading lip is a design element that contributes to the vehicle's overall utility. These features, combined with its spacious interior and ample storage capacity, make the Kia Niro the perfect solution for those seeking a vehicle that doesn't compromise on either efficiency or practicality. 

Running costs

In terms of road tax, the Niro sits in a reasonably low-cost range from £0 to £170 annually. Insurance-wise, the models tend to fall within groups 20-24 (out of 50). This placement in the middle-tier insurance bracket means the Niro is relatively cost-effective to insure, making it a viable option for a wide range of drivers, from young adults to more experienced motorists. The efficient engines also help to ensure that day-to-day running costs are kept low.

How a used Kia Niro drives

The Niro is available as a self-charging hybrid and a plug-in hybrid, with the former option combining a 1.6-litre petrol engine with a 32kW electric motor to produce a combined 139bhp. This setup ensures impressive fuel efficiency that hovers around 53.3–61.4mpg. The plug-in hybrid, meanwhile, with its larger battery, can drive up to 31 miles purely on electric power, boasting an impressive fuel efficiency of up to 201mpg.


If you're looking for even greater efficiency and clean performance, the e-Niro is the ideal choice. Powered by a 64kWh battery, the all-electric e-Niro offers a robust 198hp and torque of 395Nm. This achieves 0-62mph in just 7.5 seconds. Plus, with a range of up to 282 miles, range anxiety is a thing of the past. 

The Niro’s nimble handling, combined with features like adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and autonomous emergency braking ensure that you're always in control. The regenerative braking system in the e-Niro even allows for one-pedal driving in certain scenarios, making city drives even more convenient.
