Thanks to its high stance, conservative styling, and a more normal, traditional-acting automatic transmission, the Kia Niro is a genre-splitting hybrid that combines fuel economy with versatility. It uses the same drivetrain as its sibling hybrid -- the Hyundai Ioniq -- and also suffers from some of that car's shortcomings.
When compared with conventional wagons and small SUVs, the Niro's 43 mpg overall is impressive. But that falls 9 mpg shy of the Toyota Prius and Ioniq, our current hybrid fuel economy champs, and that's due to the Niro's extra weight and less aerodynamic body shape.
