Ok what is it we are actually getting for $24,995.00 for the new Kia Niro. Is it worth its money? Well here we go......the new Kia's are all equipped within and for their price point. Niro base model L comes with standard 16-inch alloy wheels. For those who don't know what a nice size wheel is, Niro has it. To put it in perspective a full size truck usually has 17 inch wheel. Niro has a sturdy base to dig deep and a wide spread to grip where it needs. The heated front seats and steering wheel are awesome perks for those who live in colder climates. It also has a nice added safety feature of LED daytime running lights. You think the list of goodies might be over but no, the base model L also comes with a seven inch touchscreen infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The electric motor (1.56 kWh lithium-ion battery) is coupled with a 1.6 litre direct injected four cylinder engine. It releases 139 horses and 195 lb or torque. That torque gets to the front wheels by a six speed dual clutch through and automatic transmission. It gives you the giddy up you need every time it's needed. The fuel economy is almost as good as the power at 4.5L per 100 kilometers. The drive is smooth and responsive. With an ample interior and great features, you bet, the car is worth every penny of the price tag
