The 2019 Kia Niro at Lee Johnson Kia is a worthwhile investment if you are in the market for an affordable and fuel-efficient compact SUV. The Technology of the 2019 Kia Niro is sure to impress you, as will its fuel efficiency, performance, driving dynamics, interior comfort, and convenience features. Let’s explore the technology of this SUV.

Hybrid Technology of the Kia Niro


The 2019 Kia Niro is driven by an advanced parallel hybrid system that combines the output of a naturally aspirated 1.6 liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with that of an electric motor. For optimal fuel efficiency, Kia have optimized the gasoline engine of this system for hybrid-vehicle application. Also, this Atkinson cycle engine utilizes technologies like cooled exhaust gas recirculation, gasoline direct injection, and dual continuously variable valve timing to improve fuel economy. This engine also benefits from an exhaust heat recovery system that improves thermal efficiency by speeding up engine warm-up; it does so by routing coolant to a heat exchanger in the vehicle’s exhaust system.

The 43-horsepower electric motor, on the other hand, is linked to a 1.56 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack. This battery pack is recharged continuously by a regenerative braking system that harnesses the kinetic energy that is generated at the front wheels when the brakes are applied. Thanks to the above innovations, the 2019 Kia Niro offers an EPA-estimated fuel economy of up to 52 mpg in the city and up to 49 mpg on the highway.
