The 2022 Kia Niro EV is a capable little crossover with nearly 240 miles of range per charge and plenty of room for passengers and cargo. Kia’s small crossover is available in hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and electric versions. This upgrade to the base Niro adds essential driver-assist technologies and premium comfort and convenience features to an exceptional hybrid range—all in a seriously fun-to-drive package with plenty of interior space.  

The Kia Niro is a fan favorite and known for its reliability with an overall 4.6 Kelley Blue Book Rating (out of 5), and the Kia Niro EV can expect to be held to the same high standards. Full of new features including standard wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, remote start with a key fob, and smart cruise control- curve with stop and go, the Kia Niro EV brings comfort and tech to the table.  

The hybrid innovation to the Kia Niro provides a fun driving experience. The Niro’s 1.6L, gasoline-direct injection (GDI) engine provides the necessary power to the hybrid drivetrain—so there’s no sacrifice in the fun-to-drive department. Drive with fewer stops to refuel with the regenerative braking system that captures the energy produced when you slow down and uses it to recharge Niro’s lithium-ion drive battery. The dual power system pairs a gasoline engine with an electric motor to deliver up to an EPA-estimated 53/48/50 (City/Highway/Combined) MPG for the Niro LX, keeping more of your money in your wallet. 

The Niro EV got a sporty redesign compared to the base Niro, styling a bold front grille that features a diamond pattern, giving it a 3-D look that makes an exciting first impression. The interior space flexes to fit your life with a standard 60/40 split-folding rear seat that allows for up to 63.2 cubic feet of cargo space. The Kia Niro EV didn’t skimp on the tech features either. The command center in the driver’s cabin offers a standard 8.0-inch display and available 10.25-inch touchscreen display with split-screen capability to allow access to available features like the voice command navigation system. Call or send texts with ease using the standard Apple CarPlay or Android Auto that allows you to communicate while never lifting a finger off the wheel or taking your eyes off the road.  

Stay safe on the road with advanced driver assist technology featuring forward collision avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, blind-spot collision warning, rear cross-traffic collision warning, lane following assist, smart cruise control, and driver attention warning with leading vehicle departing alert. Never get in an accident again with the Kia Niro that has your back covered while you’re on the road.

Pick your poison. Stinger offers two engine options, each one paired with a uniquely optimized version of Kia’s 8-speed automatic transmission for fast, seamless shifting and decisive acceleration. The available V6 engine also features a new electronic variable exhaust valve for satisfyingly sweet engine notes. The 2022 Kia Stinger comes standard with the nimble handling of rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive with torque vectoring control is available for enhanced handling and stability under heavy cornering or a variety of low-grip surfaces. 

Enjoy a beautiful interior featuring a standard 10.25-inch touch screen that’s compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Sink into the low-slung seating profile and ergonomic, contoured bucket seats with standard front seat heating and available 16-way power controls that cradle you in every curve. Show off to your friends with the new Stinger’s refreshed interior design, featuring metallic accents and standard leather-trimmed seats, or upgrade to Chain-Volume Nappa leather seat trim, inspired by classic high-end watch design. 

The 2022 Kia Stinger offers the same advanced driver safety features as the other 2022 models in addition to the low-beam assist. A dynamic low beam assist is designed to track your steering angle and vehicle speed to help enhance directional lighting, keeping the road clear even on the darkest of nights.

Kia Telluride Wins “Triple Crown” of Prestigious Automotive Awards

2020 Kia Telluride is Award-Winning SUV

SUV Captures 2020 NACTOY Utility Vehicle of the Year, MotorTrend SUV of the Year and Car and Driver 10Best

IRVINE, Calif., January 14, 2020 — The Telluride is Kia’s winningest and most awarded vehicle in the past year and the first sport-utility vehicle to win the “Triple Crown” of the auto industry’s most prestigious accolades: 2020 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year from North American Car of the Year (NACTOY)1MotorTrend SUV of the Year; and a Car and Driver 10 Best.

The sweep caps an incredible 2019 for the Telluride, which captured not only the three most illustrious automotive industry awards, but also numerous “Best of” honors and top accolades from other prestigious online, print and video outlets.

“Winning this ‘Triple Crown’ of prizes is a spectacular achievement for the Telluride,” said Michael Cole, president, Kia Motors America (KMA), “and also for Kia Motors America. This is not just the unprecedented achievement of a terrific vehicle, but it’s also a high-water mark for the brand and places Kia at the forefront of global automakers.”

NACTOY jurors voted Telluride number one based on months of test drives, comparisons and other evaluations. Criteria for MotorTrend’s premier award are best in safety, efficiency, value, design, engineering and performance of intended function. Car and Driver 10Best winners are the magazine’s top vehicles in an array of categories, including value, driving dynamics and mission fulfilment.

In addition to being the Kia vehicle that has collected the most awards within its first year on the market, the Telluride is also one of KMA’s best-selling vehicles. Since going on sale in early 2019, nearly 60,000 Tellurides have been sold and demand continues to outpace supply. Conceived, designed, and developed in the U.S. specifically for the U.S. market, the Telluride is proudly assembled in West Point, Georgia, and is the first Kia vehicle to be exported from the United States.
