Throwing in a few convenience attributes thanks to modern technology, the 2021 Kia Niro focuses on providing a laid-back driving experience more than anything.
What's New for 2021?
The Kia Niro is a vehicle that does not sleep on the opportunity to better itself. In fact, in its 2021 introduction the Kia Niro graced its newest model with more innovative technology and standard feature inclusions than ever before. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard across all models, so if you are traveling across country or commuting to work you can do so while blasting your favorite tunes. A rear seat reminder is also standard across all models for 2021, which provides a courtesy alert when passengers are sensed in the back seat with the vehicle turned off.
Remote start is another convenience amenity that now accompanies every model with passive hands-free entry capabilities. A brand new navigation system with current road condition updates and a pairing to adaptive cruise control assists drivers with finding their way around, too. Sensing road changes and road work zones are just a few benefits this duo offers in its 2021 entrance.
As a subcompact crossover, the 2021 Kia Niro can combine the look of a hatchback with extra room that mimics that of a small SUV. Its rear door that opens upward creates an easier way to load and unload rear cargo space. Yet, its four-door layout allows passengers to easily enter and exit this model, as well. The 2021 Kia Niro also thrives on practicality, which is transferred into its exterior styling elements. Simple curves and bold black accents give this crossover an athletic appeal.
On the inside, the 2021 Kia Niro combines cloth and plastic materials as standard with a few leather accents appearing in mid-level trims. Although this model features dual zone automatic climate control, it has a button to turn this feature off in the hot summer months when hybrid models can experience a drain in fuel efficiency from this enhancement. In addition, carefully planning for its hybrid-powering battery pack, the 2021 Kia Niro has a special spot for this component that does not take away from its cargo stowage space.
In total the 2021 Kia Niro implements for trim options for consideration. These model options for the 2021 Kia Niro consist of the LX, LXS, Touring, Touring SE, and EX. The lower trims are solely powered by a gasoline engine, but mid-level trims and beyond see the introduction of hybrid variants. A major upgrade between the LX and the LXS is that the LXS is available as a PHEV. Beyond this, the Touring model adds in quite a few convenience features, and the Touring SE amplifies this even further. The top-tier EX is available as a hybrid, a premium version, or a hybrid premium model, surpassing every other trim in its versatility among its enhancement options.
The Kia Niro is a model that is simply a joy to ride. Its excellent fuel economy means you do not have to stop frequently to fill up your tank, and its premium comfort amenities improve the driving experience of owners. Remote start, app connectivity, and automatic high beam headlights are just a few quality amenities you will find in the 2021 Kia Niro.
In addition, the overall ride quality of the Kia Niro is structured and well-controlled. Its stability as a compact crossover is unmatched and every gear change is smooth thanks to different drive mode options. Accuracy in driving direction governed by those behind the wheel is a thoughtful attribute added to this model, as well. Overall, the 2021 Kia Niro is much more refined, yet agile, than you would think it would be.
As a hybrid model, the fuel economy of the 2021 Kia Niro is superb. Attaining 53 city mpg and 48 highway mpg with its thriftiest engine, this crossover was made for adventuring and commuting. The best plug-in hybrid layout can even achieve 105 MPGe, which surpasses our expectations by far.

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
