First Drive: The Niro has grown up for 2023 and Kia decided to bring as much electrification as you want. This plug-in hybrid Niro competes with the Toyota RAV4 Prime, Hyundai Tucson PHEV and Ford Escape PHEV. On the outside you will discover a unique front fascia, 18in wheels, and gloss black trim. On the inside there is the same interior layout as the EV6. Under the hood is a 1.6L inline-4 paired with an electric motor to produce 180HP & is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Is the NEW 2023 Kia Niro PHEV a better SUV than a Toyota RAV4 Prime?

  1. Innovative and value. They don’t copy everyone else and when you look at interior you feel like you are getting something for your $$$
    Looks good in that color and those wheels. 👍 not loving the wide gloss black piece in back. Can you get single body color ?

  2. This seems allright. Still a little too expensive for me (Even if I could find one at MSRP and removed the dealer BS) but I’ll keep it in mind.

  3. I love how Kia doesn’t put CVTs in their hybrids (same with sister conglomerate Hyundai). I’m still a big fan of Honda’s, Subaru’s and Toyota’s CVTs and eCVTs so far, the only CVTs I’d stay away from are Nissan’s and Infiniti’s as well as Mitsubishi’s because their CVTs are nothing but trouble. Love this new Niro so far. $7500 Fed. Tax Credit, here I come!

  4. Great Kia Niro I think Kia did a great great job on the Kia Niro. Why don’t auto makers give out specs the same day it gets launched?

  5. After my experiences with multiple Toyotas..I’ll gladly take the Kia over the RAV4. Couldn’t pay me to own a Toyota ever again. Plus, I mean..the Kia just looks drop dead gorgeous compared to the RAV4 which already looks like it’s 5 years old.

  6. Time flies by still remember the Niro coming out 5 years ago. I LIKE this car when came out that year has better looks than RAV4 and better warranty.

  7. Kia and Hyundai makes the best looking rims. This Niro is absolutely Beautiful. Way to go Kia!

  8. I drive this PHEV for a day and i must say it drives very comfy and silent and the acceleration power was not bad.

  9. They have both PHEV and EV versions? I think Kia could’ve waited a bit longer before releasing the EV, to see how the PHEV would fair.

  10. That is a sweet niro I used to have a 2019 niro ex premium it was so nice I hated when I traded it for the CX-5 but we have an amazing terrain denali now Kia has done amazing with the new niro great job joe and Lori
