Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

What you must know before buying the Kia Niro

Matthew Keegan
Contributing Editor - March 5, 2020
  • 2019 Kia Niro still available
  • Cash: Up to $2,000
  • Finance: 0.0% for 66 months
  • Lease: From $199 per month

Kia’s dedicated electrified vehicle:

The Niro is Kia's first dedicated hybrid model. It is marketed as a crossover SUV and boasts fuel economy of up to 50 mpg overall with the available FE version. Most other variants achieve 49 mpg. A plug-in version went on sale last year.

An EV version is also available, but it is limited to just 12 states: California, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas, and Washington.

Based on our analysis, the FE model is likely to be more difficult to find than other versions, a trend we are following. Besides the FE grade, the Kia Niro is available in LX, EX and Touring trims. We should see the 2020 Niro in the coming weeks.

Kia’s current offers are in place through March 31, 2020. We may see an update before then, so please check back.

Customer cash offers:

Customer cash is in place and this month Kia is offering up to $2,000 on the 2019 Niro (S and Touring trims; $1,500 on the others). The way this works is that you can claim the cash, but you can't take the promotional financing deal. However, you may qualify for standard financing with Kia.

Strong financing offers for the taking:

Choose a 2019 Niro and you’ll find 0.0-percent APR financing for 66 months and 0.9-percent APR financing for 72 months.

Kia's financing offers are strong and typically beat the competition. These offers are phenomenal.

Lease from a competitive $199 per month:

You can lease a 2019 Kia Niro and make payments of $199 per month for 36 months with $2,999 due at signing on the LX trim. Your monthly effective cost here is $282.

Choose the 2019 Niro LX PHEV and your monthly payments are $249 and your cash due at signing is $2,999. Here, your effective cost is $332 per month.

The Kia Niro continues to command a significant price advantage over the segment-leading Toyota Prius.

2020 Kia Niro: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor

Model Preview

The Kia Niro is still relatively young, having just debuted in the 2017 model year. Entering its fourth model year in 2020, this thrifty crossover will get a mild refresh. The changes are not too dramatic but are undoubtedly noticeable.

The overall shape and design of the 2020 Kia Niro carry on unchanged, but it will get a few soft-part swaps. These updates will include new projector-style headlights and fog lights, a revised diamond-pattern grille, and dual chevron-shaped LED daytime running lights. Around back, the update will continue with a wider and more pronounced skid plate and updated LED taillights. Rounding out the changes to the 2020 Niro will be revised 16- and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Kia Niro

Kia didn’t limit the midcycle changes to just the outside. It will also add a revised 7-inch instrument cluster with updated drive mode graphics, a standard 8-inch touchscreen, optional navigation with a 10.25-inch touchscreen, and a new Harmon/Kardon audio system.

Under its hood, the 2020 Kia Niro will continue unchanged with its 1.6-liter engine and electric motor combining to produce 139 horsepower. Power will head through a six-speed dual-clutch transmission and out to the front wheels. While this is far from an exhilarating powertrain, its specialty will remain thriftiness. We expect it to maintain the current model’s fuel-economy ratings of up to 52 miles per gallon city, 49 highway, and 50 combined.

The Niro Plug-In will also continue with the same powertrain that’ll include a 1.6-liter engine and a more powerful electric motor that combine for the same 139 total horsepower. It’s 8.9-kilowatt-hour battery will deliver up to a 26-mile range on a full charge before the gasoline engine kicks in.

With its optional HID projector headlights and available automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, the 2019 Kia Niro is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+. With no changes coming to its safety equipment in the new model year, we expect the refreshed model to continue with the same safety ratings.

Pricing & Release Date

Pricing will range from $25,710 to $33,910 (including destination fees).

The 2020 Kia Niro is arriving in showrooms now.

This hybrid will battle the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, Hyundai Ioniq, and the Toyota Prius.
