Powering the 2023 Kia Niro Hybrid is a 1.6-liter gasoline direct-injection (GDI) 4-cylinder engine teamed with a 32 kW electric motor to produce a total of 139 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Although possessing the same mechanicals from the previous generation, the Niro Hybrid receives improvements to increase efficiency. Power gets sent to the front wheels via a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission. The hybrid will reach 60 mph in about 10.4 seconds, according to Kia. What it lacks in power it makes up for in fuel economy. U.S. EPA fuel-economy ratings for the 2023 Kia Niro HEV come in at 53 mpg city / 54 mpg hwy / 53 mpg combined with a total range of 588 miles. These figures drop to 53 / 45 / 49 respectively for the EX Touring and SX Touring versions, which are equipped with larger wheels.
