android, kia's niro hybrid rolls into singapore with a claimed efficiency of 4l/100km

Rising COE prices have made cars really expensive these days, but that doesn't automatically make them irrational purchase. There are still economical options out there if you know where to look and the new Kia Niro Hybrid makes a strong case for being one of them.

The is a small crossover SUV hybrid and the key thing you want to know is that it has a 1.6-litre 4-cylinder engine and that's paired with a 32kW electric motor. Total output is 128hp and 144nm of torque, which means it's a CAT A COE car.

The Niro Hybrid features Kia's second-generation six-speed dual-clutch transmission. Interestingly, there's no reverse gear, which saves a couple of kilos. Instead, reserve drive is provided solely by the electric motor.

Claimed fuel consumptions figure is 4L/100km or 25km/l, which is quite remarkable for a car of its size. And with a 45L capacity fuel tank, this means owners should get over a 1,000km on a full tank. Hopefully, we'll get the chance to test one soon and see how it performs in the real world.
