2017 Kia Niro vs. 2017 Honda HR-V vs. 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid
Hybrids are a heck of a lot more versatile and powerful than they were when they first hit the mainstream around 20 years ago. What we once thought of hybrids – poor design, low-powered, and not affordable – has made way for models like the rapidly-growing hybrid crossover class, which includes the 2017 Kia Niro, 2017 Honda HR-V and the 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid. We'll compare these three vehicles to see which is the best eco-friendly vehicle in its class!
What are two things you look for with a hybrid? You want fuel economy and eco-friendly behaviors. The better the MPG, the lower the emissions, for one, and the 2017 Niro averages 50 combined MPG in its base FE trim, while the 2017 HR-V averages about 30 MPG combined and the 2017 Rogue Hybrid norms 34 combined MPG. In addition, the Niro has a cool (and environmentally-friendly) feature that neither of the other two do: Regenerative Braking, where the crossover stores energy from braking power / activity for later use.

While we all want our hybrids to be fuel-efficient and eco-friendly, we also want our vehicles to have killer tech. Which the 2017 Kia Niro has, to be sure: With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility standard and an available 8-inch touchscreen, you will drive circles around the tech and eServices of the 2017 HR-V and Rogue Hybrid, neither of which can sync up with a compatible iPhone or Android smartphone like the Niro can. And both of the non-Niro hybrids have a smaller max-size touchscreen, so everything from musical selections to directions will be harder to manage and see, with seven inches of screen, as compared to the Niro's larger available screen.
When you combine the style, environmentally-friendly features and technology of the 2017 Kia Niro, you know you have the ideal vehicle in the hybrid crossover class, and one that comes with 54.5 cubic feet for cargo to boot!
