2017 Kia Niro Review

Feb 06, 2017 - 11:47 AM - by AutoGuide.com

With a seemingly limitless ceiling on how many crossovers the market can bear, itís all but guaranteed to sell based on body style alone. Add in fuel consumption thatís almost on par with the Toyota Prius, and the Niro has an appeal thatís all its own.

Kia unveiled the new Stinger sport sedan at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show and it ushered in a new era for the Korean automaker.

Targeting a whole new tier of performance and luxury, the Stinger has a lot going for it. Under the hood, two engines are being offered: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 255 hp or an awesome twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 engine that will make 365 hp. With a zero-to-62-mph time of about 5 seconds, itís easy to see why people are getting so excited.
