2017 Kia Niro vs. 2017 Honda HR-V

The 2017 Kia Niro is a brand-new hybrid crossover which is made in the mold of prior revolutionary vehicles, blended with the youthful style of Kia vehicles to make the ultimate fuel-friendly hybrid. It is the first vehicle in the hybrid utility vehicle class to average more than 50 miles per gallon in any trim option, which it achieves in its base FE trim, at 52 mpg city, 49 mpg highway. The 2017 Honda HR-V hybrid crossover gives you starting fuel economy of 28 mpg city, 34 mpg highway, which is basically what a gas-only crossover will give you.

Since the 2017 Niro and 2017 HR-V are in the same category of eco-friendly hybrids, the 2017 Kia Niro is hitting a new fuel-efficiency level that others will struggle to match in coming years and model variations. In addition, the 2017 Niro has a potent torque output of 195 lb.-ft., which utterly blows away the 2017 HR-V's 127 torque rating. Not only do you have a powerful vehicle in the Niro, you have one that will save you more money than the competition.
