2019 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid Review

2019 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid

The 2019 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) brings hybrid technology to new levels. It carries the crossover perks of the Niro Hybrid, but also allows you to plug in, charge up, and go fully electric if you'd like to avoid gas entirely. 

Maguire Kia features the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid at our dealership, which serves Ithaca, Corning, and Binghamton motorists. In this space, learn all about plug-in hybrid technology and what that means for your travels around the region, along with interior amenities and safety features this vehicle carries.

Plug-In Hybrid Technology

This crossover offers versatility, right down to the way it's powered. A push of a button allows you to go all-electric, with the lithium-ion polymer battery providing up to 26 miles of all-battery driving1. Equipped with a 120-volt charger, this vehicle can be charged using the same style outlet you use for home appliances for easy overnight charging at home. A full charge can be completed in about nine hours. A 240-volt charger can be installed at your home, for a fast charge in less than three hours.

This vehicle is equipped with a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine, paired with a 60-horsepower electric motor. A 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission comes standard, and shifts smoothly to provide a sporty drive. The Hybrid Starter-Generator will shut the gas engine off when the vehicle is at a complete stop, and restarts when pressing on the accelerator.

Interior Amenities

2019 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid

The Niro Plug-In Hybrid will take good care of you. With the available 10-way power driver's seat and memory seating system capable of handling settings for up to two drivers, you'll feel at home. The dual-zone air conditioning with driver-only mode comes standard, allowing you to dial up the perfect temperature inside the cabin.

Whether you're out driving or just hanging out at home, the UVO system puts you in charge. When you're on the road, this system allows you to enjoy hands-free calling and texting, or music management with voice commands. At home, the UVO eco app can be used to set charging schedules, lock the doors, or find charging stations nearby.

Safety Features

Safety doesn't sleep. You need to feel protected out on the roadway, and the 2019 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid packs a range of standard and available features designed to be your guide. Standard Autonomous Emergency Braking uses radar to detect a possible collision, with the brakes automatically applied if you aren't able to stop in time. Available Blind Spot Detection tracks the blind spots on the side and rear of the car, letting you know if there are objects not in your line of sight.

Available Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert offer a bit of extra assistance for rear viewing. Use these features to your advantage and gain a leg up while driving.
