Kia Niro: Hybrid Crossover SUV With High-Tech Cockpit

When you tell Sterling Kia of Lafayette that you're looking for a hybrid crossover SUV near New Iberia, the Kia Niro will surely be a top choice. Efficiency isn't the only highlight of this five-seat family car, which is loaded with signature electronic amenities, such as the UVO multimedia system and Harman Kardon speakers.

Hybrid Performance

Powered by the Full Parallel Hybrid System, the Niro offers an efficient drive on the highways of Youngsville. A four-cylinder gasoline engine with a 1,580 cc displacement is standard in the powertrain. The maximum ratings for the I-4 engine are 104 horsepower and 109 lb-ft of torque. Supplemental power is generated by an electric motor, which comes with a classic electromagnet. Up to 125 lb-ft could be transferred from the motor to the hybrid system.

A 240-voltage rating is assigned to the Lithium-Ion Polymer battery. Some important specs of the battery are 6.5 Ah and 1.56 kWh. Instead of using a conventional torque converter, this Kia crossover SUV uses a clutch to manage six different gear ratios. Additionally, the Sportmatic technology supplements the dual-clutch transmission system.

Family Friendly Features

Besides having an economical mechanical platform, the Niro has lots of convenient features for families near Abbeville.

A wireless charging tray is set up in the multimedia hub of the front row. An illuminated indicator monitors the total charge of a phone that's placed on the induction-powered charging tray. A power inverter with a 110-volt capacity is another class-leading amenity in this Kia crossover SUV.

From navigation to music, the 8-inch UVO infotainment system provides great services in the cockpit. You could request real-time highway updates from SiriusXM Traffic. The GPS navigation software is optimized to accept voice commands from the driver or front passenger. Every Niro trim works well with Google Maps and other similar guidance apps that are supported by Android Auto. If you want personalized assistance from Siri, plug in an iPhone to the Apple CarPlay interface.

A six-speaker sound system is standard in the lower-level Niro trims. The higher trim levels come with the Harman Kardon audio system. A subwoofer supplements the eight speakers that optimize acoustic reproduction from SiriusXM and HD Radio.
