Kia offers the Niro in five trims: FE, LX, EX, S Touring, and Touring. Pricing for the vehicle ranges from $24,430 to $33,090 (all prices include destination). Like other Kias, the Niro is a value-packed car with loads of standard features. Even the base model comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, a seven-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, keyless entry, and dual-zone automatic climate control.
Even with the attractive list of standard features on the entry-level trim, we'd go with mid-level EX. It comes with heated exterior mirrors, roof rails, automatic headlights, fog lights, blind-spot monitoring, lane change assist, rear cross-traffic alert, cloth- and leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, a 4.2-inch TFT trip computer, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror as standard.
