Experience the Roomy and Economical New Kia Niro

If you're shopping for an economical crossover SUV that's roomy enough to bring all your stuff, the new Kia Niro may be just what you need. The new Niro will turn heads with its smart aerodynamic design, featuring a wide stance, sleek trim, clean lines, and stylish wheels. Unlike most hybrid vehicles that carry their battery packs in their trunks, the Niro's battery pack is stored under the rear seat, giving it more cargo space than most SUVs in its class. The Niro also has spacious, comfortable seating, and people in the Westbrook and Auburn, ME areas can shop from a wide range of Niro trims at Bill Dodge Kia.

If you thought a subcompact hybrid SUV wouldn't have enough cargo and passenger room, you haven't tried the new Kia Niro. The Niro has comfortable seating in both rows and good outward visibility for the driver. Drivers in the Falmouth and Portland areas who bring a lot of supplies on the road with them will appreciate that the Niro also 19.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats in use and 54.5 cubic feet with them folded. Standard features in the new Niro include dual-zone automatic climate control, and an infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, Bluetooth, and voice recognition. Optional amenities include heated seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, navigation, and a wireless phone charger.

Unlike most hybrids, the new Kia Niro uses a smooth-shifting dual-clutch six-speed automatic transmission instead of a continuously variable automatic transmission, which helps give it a quiet ride. It also rides more gently than most hybrid crossovers, thanks to its efficient regenerative braking system. Any time you slow down, the braking system charges Niro up. During deceleration, the electric traction motor captures the kinetic energy to recharge the battery. It’s one of the Niro's many energy-smart technologies that help maximize fuel economy. The Niro comes standard with a four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that combine to produce 139 horsepower. Drivers in the South Portland and Yarmouth areas who want to save on gas will like that the Niro gets 52 mpg in the city and 49 mpg on the highway. It has four different driving modes (Regular, Sport, Eco, and Snow) you can use to customize the Niro’s ride to suit your style.

You'll feel secure in the new Kia Niro, which earned a Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It comes standard with an advanced airbag system and a rearview camera. Available driver assistance features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and lane keep assist. The new Kia Niro has spacious seating, refined cabin features, marvelous fuel economy, and a composed ride. Stop by Bill Dodge Kia and test drive it today.
