We bought a Niro LX for $21,000 + tax.
Here are the highlights and low lights.
Amazing MPG - I'm getting over 60 mpg.
Price without leather was great...$21,000.
The sports mode turns this into A SUPER FAST sports car.
(No kidding...it will blow almost anything away for 20 yards.)
I couldn't believe it.
Now the bad...
The front seat sucks but a good cushion will fix it.
The ride is a bit sporty...it's not horrible but could be better.
The stereo speakers are ok but you might want to upgrade.
Well, that's it.
My wife loves the car but she loves her 2014 Prius.
I'll give it a 4 out of 5.
Also, Kia has a super warranty.
3 month update:
I've driven about 2200 miles and am getting over 600 miles on a fill-up.
That's really nice.
I can hookup my phone with a YouTube app and play thousands of songs through the media button, so I won't need Sirusxm.
The car is easy to wash. Takes about 20 minutes by hand.
Car handles very nice around town and is agile.
I'm 6'4" and weigh about 290 and I have plenty of room.
So far it's been a good purchase.
I was going to buy a RAV4 Hybrid but we saved around $8,000 with the NIRO and are getting way better gas mileage.
Update at 10,000 miles.
I've had no issues with the car.
We took it on a 3300 mile road trip.
It got absolutely great gas mileage.
Drives nice on the highway.
I've enjoyed this car and I hope it lasts.
