Photos of the Kia Niro

Kia Niro Photos: Kia Niro Touring front view

Stylish but not funky front end. Crossover height. Current Kia grille.

Kia Niro Photos: Kia Niro Touring front quarter view

Handsome lines with a hint of Audi. Just enough height to pass as a crossover.

Kia Niro Photos: Kia Niro EX front quarter

The Niro EX has smaller wheels, 16s rather than 18s.

Kia Niro Photos: 2013 Ford C-MAX front quarter view

The Ford C-MAX (2013 in the photo) has odd front-end styling and dorky proportions.

Kia Niro Photos: 2012 Toyota Prius v front angle view

Lacked both equipment and skills for good pics in 2012. But you get the idea. Prius v ain't pretty.

Kia Niro Photos: Toyota RAV4 Hybrid XLE front quarter view

It's a current Toyota, so the RAV4's styling is overdone and lacking in elegance.

Kia Niro Photos: Kia Niro Touring side view

Top-trim Touring with 18-inch wheels. Note short rear overhang--not good for cargo volume.

Kia Niro Photos: Kia Niro EX side view

Mid-level EX with 16-inch wheels--actually plastic covers over hidden alloy wheels.

Kia Niro Photos: Kia Niro EX rear quarter view

Rear end design puts style ahead of functionality. Black wheel lip trim says crossover.

I doubt the slight diffuser beneath the rear bumper is functional...

Kia Niro Photos: Kia Niro EX interior

Tastefully styled interior. Comfortably padded armrests. EX has combination of leather and cloth.

Kia Niro Photos: 2013 Ford C-MAX interior

The C-MAX interior looks and feels more European. But intrusive center stack.

Kia Niro Photos: 2012 Toyota Prius v interior

Ugly and plasticky interior in the Prius v.

Kia Niro Photos: Toyota RAV4 Hybrid XLE interior

Toyota has upgraded interior materials in the RAV4. Still not attractive.

As in other Kias, simple, thoroughly conventional, easy to use controls.

Kia Niro Photos: Kia Niro EX driver seat

Comfortable driver seat. Cloth center panels in the EX.

Kia Niro Photos: Kia Niro EX rear seat

Plenty of headroom and legroom in back. Plus a comfortably high cushion.

Kia Niro Photos: Kia Niro cargo area

Not much cargo space behind the back seat. But how much do you often need?

Folding the second-row seat nearly triples the cargo volume.

Outstanding fuel economy, decent power, more natural feel than other hybrids.
