Why choose a Kia Niro?

The first Kia Niro was launched in 2016 and since then several new models have hit the market, with the latest due this summer. 

Drivers can choose from a 100% electric car or a hybrid and it’s one of the three most popular cars drivers search for when looking for car insurance on MoneySuperMarket. 

One of the reasons it’s so popular is the additional features that it come with. This includes a seven-year (or 100,00 mile) warranty and its forward collision-avoidance assist technology, which alerts drivers to potential dangers and automatically breaks if they don’t respond.

 You can also navigate the fastest routes, check for parking and charge points, and even get the weather forecast with the Kia Connect on-board and live services. 

For more information on the Kia Niro, see the Kia website.
