How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Kia Niro
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Kia Niro invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
The Kia Niro offers some surprises. As the smallest SUV in Kia's lineup, it manages to have a good amount of cargo space, and perhaps more importantly, it's only available as a hybrid or an all-electric vehicle. The Niro has a lot of practical features as well as a reasonable price tag, so it'll likely be able to attract certain types of buyers.
For the 2022 model year, nothing really has changed. An exception is that the Kia logo has been revamped to look more futuristic.
Hybrid and All-Electric Versions
The five hybrid trims all use the same type of full parallel hybrid system, which relies on an electric component and a 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine. The system can generate a net horsepower of 139 and provides 195 pound-feet of torque. The amount of torque is definitely respectable, but the same can't necessarily said about horsepower. In addition, the hybrid Niro is only available with front-wheel drive. Clearly, this SUV isn't really intended to be used in difficult conditions.
What the Niro is good at, on the other hand, is being efficient. Its base trim is the most efficient out of the five options in the lineup, and it can earn 53 miles per gallon in the city and 48 miles per gallon on the highway. The Touring Special Edition has the lowest numbers out of the group, but they're still very good. This trim can earn up to 46 miles per gallon in the city and 40 miles per gallon on the highway.
The electric version of the Niro, which is called the Niro EV, has much more capability. Thanks to an electric motor and a decent-sized battery, it's able to make 201 horsepower and 291 pound-feet of torque. These numbers are pretty impressive and will certainly help this version attract attention from performance-oriented drivers. Keep in mind, though, that the Niro EV is also only offered with front-wheel drive.
Electric Range and Charging
Since the Niro EV relies exclusively on electric power, it's important to discuss its range. Fortunately, it does well in this area with an estimated range of 239 miles.
It's quite easy to charge an electric vehicle, in case anyone reading this was concerned about that aspect of owning an EV. The Niro EV can be fully charged using a 240-volt system in about nine and a half hours. Using a DC fast charging port, which can be found at public charging stations, cuts that time dramatically. Kia estimates that it takes an hour and and 15 minutes to get an 80% charge using this method. The SUV can even be charged at a regular 120-volt outlet. It's reassuring to know that this type of outlet can be used if necessary, even though it would take a few days to get a full charge.
Note that the hybrid Niro doesn't have to be charged, as it's not a plug-in hybrid. People can just fill up their gas tanks as they're accustomed to doing.
Technology and Safety
Kia has given every Niro model a large touchscreen with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Bluetooth. With the hybrid version, the first three trims have eight-inch touchscreens while the two higher trims have 10.25-inch touchscreens. The larger touchscreen comes with integrated voice-command navigation as well as SiriusXM Radio, so it's definitely an intriguing feature. Having that larger touchscreen also means that the Niro would receive wireless charging and a Harman Kardon premium sound system. There are only two Niro EV trims, and both of them have the 10.25-inch touchscreen with navigation and the other advanced components.
With the Niro EV, both trims have several driver-assist technologies to keep people safer. The standard systems include forward collision-avoidance assist, pedestrian and cyclist detection, and blind-spot monitoring. The Niro EV can help drivers stay centered in their lanes and be aware of traffic crossing behind them when they're backing up. The adaptive cruise control system can adjust the vehicle's speed to maintain proper distancing, and it can use information from the navigation program to determine if it needs to slow down for upcoming curves in the road.
Unfortunately, the Niro doesn't have all of these components as part of its standard package. Its base trim doesn't have any driver-assist systems. However, all of the others do have at least some of them, and the top two trims of the hybrid Niro have adaptive cruise control, too.
Though the Niro is small, it doesn't feel that cramped. It offers 37.4 inches of rear-seat leg room and has a maximum cargo capacity of 54.5 cubic feet when the rear seats have been folded down. The dimensions on the Niro EV are slightly smaller, as it has 36 inches of second-row leg room and a maximum cargo capacity of 53 cubic feet.
The interior package depends on the exact trim selected. In general, there are some nice amenities that are available. They include heated and ventilated front seats and smart key entry with push-button start. Seating upholstery can either be cloth, cloth and SynTex, cloth and leather, or just SynTex, which is a synthetic leather. Plus, the steering wheel could be wrapped in leather and heated.
The Kia Niro and Niro EV are interesting options for those who want to reduce their gas consumption. They feel modern and stylish, and the Niro EV is also pretty powerful.

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.
