The 2021 Kia Niro manages to do something special. The Kia Niro sneaks hybrid performance into the crossover segment without announcing itself or making a big deal about it. This might be the right approach to get a lot of late adopters to consider the hybrid way of life. Although it looks like most other compact crossovers, the Kia Niro delivers unassuming hybrid fuel efficiency.
The 2021 model year is a marker for the vehicle name that the Niro has staying power. Since its arrival in 2017, the Niro has grown in popularity not because it’s a hybrid, but because it has the features, handling, and space modern drivers are looking for when they choose the crossover body type. To review the Niro, its performance, and available features, please refer to the table below.

The 2021 Kia Niro is built around the idea that hybrids should be common, affordable, and fun. The Niro is small enough to make its hybrid powertrain worthwhile without being so small that people overlook it in favor of larger crossovers. But the Niro is so much more than a hybrid. The Niro isn’t missing out on any modern technologies and even manages to push a few boundaries at every trim, too.
