Called an “un-hybrid,” the Niro combines a hybrid powertrain with a subcompact crossover for the best of both worlds. The interior is roomy, with an elevated seating position for easy entry/exit and a clear view of the road ahead. A gas engine pairs with an electric motor for an output of 146 hp; estimated fuel economy is 50 mpg combined. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard. Safety tech includes blind-spot warning with rear-traffic alert, adaptive cruise, and lane-departure warning.
