2017 Kia Niro vs. 2017 Toyota Prius v
The 2017 Kia Niro is an HUV – Hybrid Utility Vehicle. While it is similarly-sized to the 2017 Toyota Prius v, the Niro is shaped like a sleek crossover while the Prius v is designed like a hybrid wagon, with increased cargo room but a reduction in fuel economy. The 2017 Prius v also falls about 20 percent short of the 2017 Niro's fuel economy, as the first-ever Niro norms 52 mpg city and 49 mpg highway in its base FE trim, while the 2017 Prius v averages 43 mpg city, 39 mpg highway to start.
The 2017 Niro made a large splash with a commercial during 2017's Super Bowl 51, an ad that had the highest scores in the annual USA Today Ad Meter survey, which tracks commercials during the championship game. When you consider the Super Bowl this year was watched by more than 111 million viewers, the Niro got the audience it deserved, as this hybrid crossover boasts the best-ever fuel economy of a vehicle in its class, and its eco-hero ways and sleek design were on full display in the ad starring Melissa McCarthy. The 2017 Prius v is a more well-established hybrid, but one with a heavier construction, fewer trim levels, and a shorter warranty coverage period than the 2017 Niro. And we kid you not when we tell you that the 2017 Niro is available for about $22,000 at Friendly Kia with our VIP Price, while the competition is asking for nearly $29,000 to start for the 2017 Prius v.
