Kia Niro 1.6 GDI plug-in hybrid: the SUV is so economical
We louts from the last bank did everything at school. Just not a 1.5 cut. How good that we can catch up on that now. At least when it comes to consumption.
Pretty quiet, pretty comfortable
First impression: pretty quiet, pretty comfortable; even his 18-inchers don’t get on the intervertebral discs. Some excitement comes in the steering and suspension only on short breaks, then the driving event becomes slightly shaky, but never annoying. The Niro gets up to speed well, but responds to violent acceleration with a loud howl of its 1.6-liter petrol engine; unfortunately a sucker and no turbo, that would be more fun.
The trunk of the plug-in quickly runs out
Length Width Height
Exhaust gas CO2
Four-cylinder, transverse at the front, plus electric motor
134.6 kW (183 hp) at 5700 rpm
1.3 l S/100 km plus 10.5 kWh
The plug-in costs at least 36,690 euros, and the bonus (7177.50 euros including tax) is only available until the end of the year. It’s complicated with a 1.5 cut. Like back then.
