Beats The Competition
Attractive styling inside and out.
Avoids looking like a spaceship, instead opting for more conventional but good looks.
Excellent fuel efficiency in the top of its segment.
Drives better than most dedicated hybrid models.
Our Take
The Niro is very un-hybrid in how it drives and looks. The crossover look is clean and fresh, while the driving dynamics prove solid.
The roomy cabin makes the Niro suitable for a family of five.
The higher ride height and easy to use cargo area make this a good CUV despite the lack of AWD.
The design of the interior is top notch and eye-catching with bright blue accents and great build quality.
