Kia Niro wins Guinness World Record(R) title and J.D.Power Award

Kia Niro has officially received a Guinness World Record® title for the lowest fuel consumption driving across the USA from coast to coast (hybrid car).  The new record-setting mark is an incredible 76.6 mpg.
 
“We’re extremely pleased with the Niro’s record-breaking performance,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning KMA. “We set out to build a vehicle that offers real-world utility, great looks and fantastic mileage, and setting the Guinness World Record® title confirms our achievement.”
 
The Niro EX was driven by Wayne Gerdes of Carlsbad, California, and co-driver Robert Winger of Williamsburg, Virginia, 3,715.4 miles from Los Angeles City Hall to New York City Hall using only 48.5 gallons or 4.1 tanks of gas. The vehicle was not altered in any way for the attempt.
 
The Niro, an Urban Crossover Hybrid Vehicle, is the first dedicated Kia hybrid and was conceived to bridge the gap between outstanding fuel economy and compact crossover usefulness. In addition to its athletic and attractive design, the Niro’s long list of features includes: a specially-designed, innovative hybrid system to provide a more dynamic and engaging driving experience; a spacious cabin with lots of room for five occupants and their gear; a full array of advanced driver assistance features —  available Autonomous Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Change Assist and Lane Departure Warning1; and advanced telematics and entertainment equipment — UVO3 with Apple CarPlay™2, Android Auto™3 and a 7-inch touch screen and available Smart Cruise Control, navigation and a Harman Kardon®4 premium audio system.
 
And topping the quality charts earning a J.D. Power Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) award and J.D. Power’s 2017 Initial Quality Study (IQS)1 accolade in the Small SUV category, Niro carries over into the 2018 model year with minor packaging enhancements.  
 
New for 2018 is the limited-production Niro Graphite Edition, which features exclusive Platinum Graphite exterior paint colour, unique 18-inch gloss black wheels, black roof rails, metallic grille insert, Harman Kardon premium audio2 with subwoofer, 8-inch touchscreen navigation3 and a 10-way power driver’s seat. 
 
Meanwhile, the Niro Touring now comes standard with HID headlights, a wireless phone charger4 and a suite of
 
Advanced Driver Assistance Features.
