2023 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid Review

A plug-in hybrid vehicle will be convenient for many purposes. You can use the electric motor when you need to make short trips without fuel, or you can use the gasoline engine for longer travels while incorporating the motor to reduce fuel usage. The 2023 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid is one vehicle you can enjoy when looking for a quality PHEV that works for you.

The 2023 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid is a five-seat crossover SUV with 16-inch wheels and a 60:40 split folding rear seat setup. Everyone inside the vehicle will enjoy the mix of cloth and leather fabric seating materials. The inside also has a 10.25-inch multimedia screen, a six-speaker audio system, and a remote start engine feature.

The electric motor in this vehicle offers an estimated driving range of 55 km before the car starts using fuel. The battery doesn’t take long to charge, as you can charge the battery in about three hours if you use a Level 2 charging system. It takes six hours to use a Level 1 charger that uses less voltage, so you can charge your vehicle overnight to get it ready for the day.

The hybrid engine is a four-cylinder model that works at about 7.5 L / 100 kms, giving you the ability to go further. Kia estimates that the vehicle can travel up to 835 km on a single tank of gas, as the electric motor will reduce the vehicle’s gasoline use when charged well.

You can also use the Green Zone Drive Mode feature when you’re aiming to keep your fuel usage down. This feature identifies your navigational info and driving habits to determine the best speeds to travel in various zones. The feature helps you keep from using more fuel than necessary, plus it reduces how many emissions you’ll produce while driving.

The safety features inside the 2023 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid include multiple sensors that identify various threats near your vehicle. There’s a rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance system that monitors incoming traffic on the sides and can apply the brakes to reduce the risk of a collision. You’ll also appreciate how the lane keep assist feature will monitor how well your vehicle travels on a road while alerting you when you start to veer off a lane. The assistance feature also guides the car back to its proper lane as necessary.

All of these features come with a five-year 100,000-km warranty covering the powertrain and various other features. There’s also an eight-year 130,000-km warranty on all PHEV components. Kia also offers a five-year roadside assistance plan where you can get twenty-four-hour access to emergency care services as necessary, ensuring you’ll stay safe while on the road.
