2017 Kia Niro

2017 Kia Niro Portland Oregon

The highly anticipated new Kia Niro has arrived in the Northwest. Our eyes have finally seen its curves, our hands have finally gripped its wheel, and we can safely conclude that it’s a green machine unlike any other hybrid on the market.

Portland Kia dealers are scrambling to line their showrooms with this tour-de-force in classy and efficient driving. As Kia’s pioneering foray into the hybrid market, the 2017 Kia Niro SUV succeeds on all fronts and will no doubt seize the attention of local Portland and Vancouver area drivers who value fuel efficiency, affordability, a roomy interior, and a sporty crossover look.

The exterior of the 2017 Kia Niro is especially unique because it minimizes the features that are typically obvious in other hybrids. Consequently, drivers can reap the benefits of owning a hybrid without announcing it to all of Portland. If the body style reminds you of another Kia crossover, the Sportage, you’re not crazy. The similarities are striking – and we think that’s a good thing.

Under the hood is where the all-new Kia Niro really kicks its curb appeal into overdrive. Northwest drivers can expect a yield of roughly 50 miles per gallon, meaning a single tank will buy you quite a few trips over the I-5 bridge for those long commutes. Also, simply by shifting the lever to the left, you can engage the Niro’s “sport mode”, which delivers more gripping acceleration and perkier steering.


Altogether the new 2017 Kia Niro is a perfectly executed addition to Kia’s lineup. If you are eager to become the next Portland Kia Niro owner or Vancouver Kia Niro owner, congratulations, you’re on the cutting edge of a new era.
