Pat Peck Kia Anticipates Arrival of 2017 Kia Niro Next Year

June 8th, 2016 by

One of the more exciting items of information about the new Kia lineup that we’ve learned is the arrival of a new model in early 2017. It’s going to be a trendsetter as the first hybrid-only crossover utility vehicle in our lineup, and impress plenty of people in D'Iberville, MS and beyond.

It’s the 2017 Kia Niro, and it’s here to provide a new efficient platform on a versatile frame and structure that is strong, stylish, and appealing to a widespread audience. It’s certainly relevant from the looks of the vehicle, which has style like its utility vehicle brethren in Kia lineup, and inside, you have a feeling of comfort, with available technology like blind spot monitoring, rear-cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, auto emergency braking, and more. You’re also treated to an available seven-inch touchscreen, with compatibility for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Of course, the important underpinning is the hybrid system and the 1.56-kWh lithium-ion polymer battery which helps power the electric motor and hybrid transmission pairs with the gas engine to produce an ample 146 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque.

We are looking forward to the arrival of the Kia Niro in 2017 here at Pat Peck Kia. In the meantime, we can discuss all our current models in our showroom, and arrange a test drive today.
