If you are in the market for a compact SUV that is styled more to the likeness of a hatchback, consider the 2017 Kira Niro LX. This hybrid crossover is everything the modern family wants in a daily driver.
Powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine coupled with an electric motor, it generates 139 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The most attractive aspect of this unique ride is its impressive gas mileage. Getting 50 mpg combined, it is comparable to several hybrid sedans, including the Toyota Prius.
The LX trim level incorporates 16-inch alloy wheels and LED taillights for a sophisticated style. Roof rails are perfect to bring along luggage for a road trip. Storage has been optimized with an underfloor tray for the rear cargo area and a center armrest in the back with cupholders. The kids won’t spill their drinks again!
According to Edmunds, dual-zone automatic climate control keeps everyone at a comfortable temperature. Bluetooth connectivity enables hands-free calling, and smartphone integration allows you to listen to your favorite songs.
