Performance, specs and features

The 2017 Kia Niro near Birmingham, AL is powered by a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine and is mated to a powerful electric motor. When the system is working together, the vehicle will be able to make 139 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. Kia has adopted a new set of engine technology to help the Niro achieve a combined city/highway fuel economy score of about 50 miles per gallon. Power is sent from the engine to the front wheels via a second-generation six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. While on the road, the new gear-changer quickly shifts for a very smooth handling profile.  

As important as fuel economy is to the 2017 Kia Niro, available at Serra Trussville Kia, it still must function as a compact crossover SUV; this means having an adaptable interior. With the rear seats in place for passengers, there is still a little more than 19 cubic-feet of cargo space to use. Simply folding those seats down opens up the available cargo space to 54.5 cubic-feet. On a smaller scale, independent reviews have also praised the Niro for its abundance of convenient storage spaces located throughout the cabin. 

Just as no person is an island, today's digital devices cannot just exist in a vacuum. Kia has built the UVO3 infotainment system to be compatible with the latest smartphones on Apple and Android platforms. By using Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the standard seven-inch touchscreen in the 2017 Kia Niro will allow drivers and passengers to use many, if not most, of their favorite applications.
