2020 Kia Niro for Sale in West Springfield, MA
The 2020 Kia Niro is showing the fruits of a good midcycle refresh, with new projector headlights and daytime running lights, a redesigned diamond grille and rear fascia, an enhanced digital gauge cluster with sharper graphics, and even more advanced technology (a new 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment display and a revised adaptive cruise control system). One improvement that’s particularly interesting is the addition of paddle shifters (already found on the Niro EV) to create a more engaging driving experience while capturing the energy created as the vehicle is slowed down. This regenerative power is captured for storage in the drive battery, extending range.
Mechanical Features and Fuel Economy
The 2020 Kia Niro uses a hybrid system consisting of a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, an AC synchronous permanent magnet motor, and a 240-volt lithium-ion polymer battery. This powertrain puts out a combined 139 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. But fuel economy is where the 2020 Kia Niro Hybrid shines the brightest. The LX gets an outstanding 52 mpg city and 49 mpg highway, as rated by the EPA. With its 11.9-gallon fuel tank, that translates to up to a 618-mile range on a single tank of gas.
Trim Levels and Safety
The 2020 Kia Niro comes in five trim levels: LX, LXS, Touring, Touring Special Edition, and EX Premium. The LX comes standard with a rear spoiler, LED daytime running lights, 16-inch aero wheels, cloth seating, a USB power outlet, a 12-volt power outlet for the front of the cabin, an 8-inch multimedia touchscreen (an inch larger than last model year’s), Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth wireless technology, a six-speaker audio system, and a rearview camera. The LXS switches to 16-inch alloy wheels and adds high beam assist, push-button start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear shift knob, and a selection of driver aids (see the Safety Technology section for details). The Touring adds 18-inch alloy wheels, power-folding and heated outside mirrors with LED turn-signal indicators, a power sunroof, front fog lights, rear LED lights, a 7-inch instrument cluster display, adjustable mood lighting, a cloth and leather seat trim, and a 10-way power driver’s seat.
The Touring Special Edition ramps up the bells and whistles, with its standard LED headlights, leather seating, a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen, voice-command navigation, SiriusXM Radio, HD Radio, and a Harman Kardon 8-speaker premium sound system with Clari-Fi technology and an integrated subwoofer. At the top of the trim ladder, the EX Premium tacks on rear parking assist sensors, a wireless phone charger, a cargo cover, faux leather seat trim, heated and ventilated front seats, and a heated steering wheel.
