Fuel-Efficiency-Promoting Technologies

In addition to its hybrid powertrain, how does the 2018 Kia Niro manage to put out such efficient specs?

Regenerative Braking System. Every time you press on the brakes, the Niro’s high-tech Regenerative Braking System will harness some of that kinetic energy in order to recharge its Li-Ion Polymer Battery.

Dual-Clutch 6-Speed Automatic Transmission. This is a step away from the types of transmissions that most hybrids use. The results? Smooth shifts, as well as an authentic-feeling driving experience.
