About the Kia Niro

Cartoon guy pointing left

What is the Kia Niro?

The Kia Niro is a family-friendly SUV that you can lease as a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid or a fully electric car. A few of its most notable plus points are monthly cost, impressive 0-62 mph times and economical running costs. 

Its fuel economy is jaw-droppingly good, even at over 50 mph (and let's face it, who wants to constantly drive around at a snail's pace?). It's equally at home cruising around town or taking on the open roads. It handles twisty country lanes with ease and is comfortable enough to enjoy as a road partner to take on the length and breadth of the country.

In fact, with fuel efficiency this impressive, if long-distance road trips aren't currently on your to-do list, they might well be in the future. This is a comfortable car with plenty of space, it looks good both outside and in, and it has an outstanding infotainment system designed to keep everyone happy on even the longest of journeys.

Charging up is hassle-free too. Take advantage of 40-minute rapid charging times and enjoy fuel-efficient, economic electric driving thanks to Kia's innovative design and commitment to improved electric motor performance. 

Talking of economy: leasing a Kia Niro Estate offers drivers the benefit of complete cost certainty too - and that's something that we know our customers love.

Kia Niro models explained

The new Niro range is simple. Choose: 

  • Niro Hybrid

  • Niro Plug-In Hybrid

  • Niro All-electric

The family comes in three different trims: 2, 3 and 4. You can select from the most popular trims or choose the base model trim. We offer the best electric lease deals across the full range, leaving you free to decide on the trim that's right for you without worrying that you could get a better lease deal elsewhere.

If fuel economy and efficiency are near the top of your list of priorities, the hybrid offers big fuel savings for a combustion fuelled car. Looking for even bigger savings? Check out the plug-in's improved fuel economy or the all-electric for 0 combustion fuel usage and 0 emissions!

Is the Kia Niro a reliable car?

Kia is a manufacturer that is widely known as having one of the best warranties out there. All new Kia cars come with a 7-year/100,000 mile warranty. Of course, that might be outside the usage terms of your lease but the bottom line is that leasing a Kia Niro means very few mechanical problems.

And not many drivers have to make use of that outstanding Kia warranty anyway. 

The Niro Estate performs superbly when it comes to reliability. While other manufacturers have reported problems with electric vehicle reliability - there's a lot more to go wrong in an alternatively-powered vehicle - Kia models have bucked this trend. 

Perhaps it's because Kia was a frontrunner when it came to electrical power innovation or maybe it's because this Korean super-manufacturer is almost obsessed with perfection and continual development we think that it's a bit of both.

All the top features of a Kia Niro

Leasing a Kia Niro is a fantastic choice, not just thanks to the well-known reliability of the brand but the additional considerations that their manufacturers have included during the model's design. 

Let's take a look at some of the top features that you can expect from a brand-new Kia Niro:


The infotainment features in the Kia Niro Estate have all been given a makeover and the layout improved compared with earlier models. The graphics are good, clear and easy to read. The infotainment system is simple to find your way around - there's nothing worse than having to spend ages fiddling around with settings to find what you want!

The driver's display is equally straightforward. You have different data options to choose from which intelligently cycle depending on your driving mode. All in all, the Kira Niro Estate provides you with all the information you could need close at hand. 

The kind of attention to detail that Kia has afforded this system is of the level that makes every journey a real pleasure - there's nothing missing and everything is designed to please.

Parking Assistance

Awkward parking spaces are an unfortunate part of modern life. Even rural towns have problems with providing enough parking, so being able to squeeze into what's available is vital. That's why Kia has worked really hard to make sure that no parking space is a problem for its drivers. 

Kias are fitted with nifty features to guide you into the perfect spot including, as standard, rear parking sensors and a reversing camera system featuring dynamic guidelines, which is integrated with your touchscreen control.

And, if you want to make parking even easier, leasing a Kia Niro model gets you remote parking and parking collision avoidance. 

Size and space in a Kia Niro Estate

So, we've established that the Kia Niro Estate is an outstanding car to take on longer journeys or away for the weekend. But, is leasing a Kia Niro a good idea when it comes to onboard space for a larger family? We think that it is.

In fact, the Niro is blessed with plenty of space throughout. Providing tonnes of room to stretch out and enjoy the miles seems to have been pretty high up the design team's priority list.

In the front, you'll enjoy lots of headroom and legroom for drivers, even those on the taller side. With scope for seat and steering wheel adjustment, we think most drivers will find a really comfortable driving position. 

Passengers in the front fare well too with plenty of space and comfort adjustments on hand. There are lots of storage bins, cupholders and phone spaces all making it easy to keep the cabin tidy and everything you need close at hand.

Climb into the back and you'll find enough space for three adults to travel in comfort. Again, there are plenty of clever storage spaces for snacks, phones and suchlike. You'll also find USB ports scattered about to keep devices charged up and ready to go.

City, motorway and country roads - How does the Kia Niro perform?

Of course, you shouldn't be limited to just one terrain when driving your car. 

The way you use it may vary between the weekends and weekdays, for example, and the good news for Kia Niro drivers is that you'll find no restrictions on where this set of wheels can take you.

City driving

The versatile Niro Estate performs well in a range of settings with city driving being one of its highlights. It has precision-balanced, intelligent suspension that does a great job of ironing out potholes in the road and takes kerbs or speed bumps in its stride. You'll cruise over all but the very roughest roads with minimal effect on driver or passenger comfort.

Mirrors are plentiful and sizable, giving good visibility for parking and swift lane changes. The small turning circle gives the Niro the manoeuvrability of a ballet dancer while the light steering makes getting around town stress-free. 

Plenty of parking assist features make sliding into a space outside your favourite shop a doddle and you have the added benefit of acres of space in the back to fill with goodies purchased with your fuel savings!

Country roads

Estate cars aren't usually known for their ability to take on the twisty roads of our rural areas. Sharp bends and uneven road surfaces call for a particular blend of features that many larger, longer cars lack. 

However, the Kia Niro Estate has minimal body lean and optimised suspension that makes sweeping around country road corners as simple as taking on the straights. Engaging, responsive steering, great balance and robust grip means that you'll feel secure on the road, even being able to take on farm tracks and loose gravel without a hitch. For a car of this capacity, the Niro isn't too wide and that makes accessing even narrower roads easy.

There's nothing quite like having a car capable of taking on some out-of-town adventures for opening up new weekend worlds of fun  and the Niro gives you that along with the space to cram in as much leisure equipment as you need. Leasing a Kia Niro means venturing out of town and enjoying the countryside.

Motorway driving

Kia is a company that works on a solution for any issues identified by its fan base of loyal drivers. That's why the design team has put an incredible amount of research into making the Niro's cabin quieter at high speeds. 

The new Niros have more sound-deadening features and insulation than ever before, making motorway driving quiet and peaceful. Both wind and tyre noise are barely perceptible, so there's no need to have your favourite music maxxed out to mask all that irritating noise. Cruise in virtual silence, relax and arrive at your destination unflustered.

The Niro also offers plenty of driver assistance features specially designed to make long-distance motorway driving simpler and more enjoyable. You'll get lane keep assist, lane follow assist, forward collision assist and smart cruise control fitted as standard.

Maintenance packages

If you're leasing a Kia Niro, adding a full maintenance package to your contract can make life even easier for you. Adding a little extra to your monthly cost can take care of maintenance issues and services that fall outside of your warranty
