2018 Kia Niro in Calgary

The Kia Niro is a spacious and versatile hybrid
SUV. What gives it its high fuel-efficiency rating is the 1.5kWh lithium
battery that works in a partnership with a lightweight electric motor and a
1.6l GDI engine that delivers 195 pound-feet of torque. This innovative SUV
proves that a powerful vehicle doesn't have to be extremely harsh on the
environment.
