March 1st, 2017 by

Are you shopping for a hybrid vehicle? The 2017 Kia Niro is the hottest hybrid in town! Now Available at Southern Kia - Lynnhaven in Virginia Beach, the All-New 2017 Kia Niro packs a 1.6L inline 4 parallel hybrid engine system into a subcompact crossover, creating an exciting new choice in the hybrid market!

Like the Kia Optima Hybrid, the Niro features a four-cylinder engine and a single AC electric motor-generator, as well as a six-speed automatic transaxle. However, the engine and gearbox have been redesigned for the Niro. The Niro has a new Atkinson-cycle 1.6L four-cylinder engine with an exhaust-heat recovery and dual cooling circuits to warm up the cylinder heads quickly. The gearbox features a dual-clutch, six-speed unit with two hydraulically actuated multi-plate dry clutches that make launches and shifts happen smoothly.

The Niro’s gas engine paired with the electric motor has an output of 139hp and an excellent fuel economy rating of up to 52 mpg city and a combined EPA estimated 50 mpg. So you’ll not only be saving time at the pump, you’ll be saving money over the course of owning the vehicle!

Kia designed the All-New 2017 Niro Hybrid Crossover with safety at top of mind. You can drive confidently with DriveWise, Kia’s suite of available driver assist technology features which include Autonomous Emergency Braking, Smart Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning System and their advanced Park Assist System. Standard Safety features include Advanced Airbag Systems, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution, Vehicle Stability Management and much more! You’ll safely navigate the highways and byways of Virginia Beach, Norfolk and the surrounding Hampton Roads area in this advanced crossover hybrid.

The Niro Hybrid will keep you well-connected as you travel the streets of Virginia Beach and beyond. With Kia’s free infotainment system, UVO, you can connect your smartphone via Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™ and instantly access your favorite apps, as well as send and receive texts, while both hands are still on the wheel!
