Roomy, versatile, and fuel-efficient, the 2017 Niro is one capable crossover-hybrid.

Explore Niro

  • Make an entrance.

    Our first CUV built from the ground up as a hybrid, the Niro surprises and performs with every drive. Complementing the smart technology are sophisticated European design choices, like clean lines crafted to minimize drag and available high-intensity discharge (HID) projector beam headlights that simply look incredible.

  • A low profile that grabs attention.

    Gorgeous, even as it drives away, the Niro leaves people with an impression they won’t soon forget. Its sporty spoiler and eye-catching available LED taillights enrich its noticeably streamlined design.

  • High fuel efficiency and low drag.

    Strategically placed air vents help air flow smoothly around the Niro. What’s more, the Niro is also meticulously sculpted to minimize drag. The result? An aerodynamic marvel that maximizes fuel efficiency and provides a smoother, quieter ride.

  • Choose sporty or striking

    Decisions, decisions. With the choice of two stylish wheel designs, including the standard and sporty 16-inch rims or the available striking twin five-spoke 18-inch rims, picking one won’t be easy.

  • Your home away from home.

    Sink into a driver’s seat that feels like it was made specifically for you. Available leather and soft-touch materials, upscale finishes, and driver-focused features strike you immediately as soon as you get behind the wheel.

  • Comfort shouldn’t be conditional.

    Be comfortable, no matter the climate. With standard heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, as well as available features like automatic dual-zone climate control, heated rear seats, and air-cooled front seats, you’ll be content in any conditions.

  • You need some space.

    Life isn’t one size fits all. That’s why Niro gives you an incredible amount of storage space and multiple configurations to fit everything you need.

  • Stay in charge of charging.

    Stay charged on the go with available wireless charging. Just place your compatible smartphone on the charging pad and say goodbye to low battery and messy cables3.

  • Music to your ears.

    Get the most out of your music by connecting it to the Niro using standard Bluetooth®7. Then, hear the difference the available Harman/Kardon®2 premium sound system can make.

Made for Unmatched efficiency

Smooth and reliable performance is delivered through our full parallel hybrid system that pairs an energy-dense 1.56 kWh lithium-ion battery, a lightweight electric motor and the Niro’s new 1.6L, gasoline-direct injection (GDI) engine for a combined 195 lb-ft of torque. The result is high efficiency performance.

Made for Shifting the bar

While many hybrids use a continuously variable transmission (CVT), the Niro raises the bar by using a highly responsive, 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) that shifts gears smoothly and quickly. The result is a crisp, exhilarating drive. This is how a hybrid should perform.

Made for Every Situation

The Niro makes the most of every driving situation. At low speeds, it will operate in EV (electric vehicle) mode. When you need a little extra power to accelerate and climb, the engine and motor run at the same time. The Niro can even recharge a low battery at fixed speeds.

Made for Seizing the moment

Any time you slow down, the regenerative braking system charges Niro up. Then, during deceleration, the electric traction motor captures the kinetic energy to recharge the battery.
