2017 Kia Niro vs. 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid vs. 2017 Kia Optima vs. 2017 Kia Sportage

The newest arrival on the lot among the hybrid crossover class is the red-hot 2017 Kia Niro, which averages more than 50 MPG in its base FE trim. But we've shown off its features elsewhere; here we will compare it with similarly-sized vehicles in the Kia stable so you can see which model has the proper performance and features you need.

A similarly-sized model among Kia hybrids would be the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid, which provides great fuel economy for a sedan with 39 mpg city, 46 mpg highway, even if it is a few miles per gallon less than the 2017 Niro. The Optima Hybrid does have more performance, with 192 combined horsepower between its combo gas engine and electric motor. The 2017 Kia Optima gas-only model has a higher peak HP at 245 and more cargo room in its trunk than the 2017 Optima Hybrid, but comes with a reduction in fuel economy to a peak of around 32 combined MPG.

The closest Kia crossover to the 2017 Niro would be the 2017 Sportage, which is also a crossover vehicle, but with a gas-only powertrain. While the 2017 Niro has 139 HP and 54.5 cubic feet for cargo, the 2017 Sportage has 181 HP in its base trim and a throaty 240 HP in its top-line trim, as well as a bump up in cargo room with 60.1 cubic feet.
