Winter driving

The cold is fast approaching! How does the niro handle snow and ice? I've never drove an automatic in these conditions, anyone have any tips?

Re: Current Car?

My car was a nissan dig-t pulsar which in many ways was a fine car. My commute of only 40 miles per day did however cost me about 45 per week. One day while having a sick child glued to my knee I saw an ad for a hybrid mondeo. I took a test drive and loved it, although the cost meant I would have no...

Just curious....

Wont be relevant for me for at least a few years. How practical are e-niros if you cant easily charge from home? I am on a hill with no drive so I would be dependant on public charge stations. Does the charge take long? Is this a viable situation?

Re: Hello all

One week in. Mondeo, what Mondeo? I haven't found anything not to like about this car. Still in the learning phase but after a weeks commute to work I have used a third of a tank compared the usual full tank, about 50mpg.

Re: Eco v Sport mode

Thanks for all the info and helping me get the most of the car. I haven't felt the need to use sport yet other than a quick test. I do 20 miles each way to work and back on the busy A1 near Newcastle and have this week averaged 50mpg. At this rate I think this car will pay for itself 😀

Re: New Member

I picked up my nero2 on Saturday. It's my first kia and I've been extremely impressed so far. Previous had a 66 Nissan Pulsar DIG-T and even though my 2 has a lesser spec, my appreciation remains.

Re: MPG

I have a new niro 2. From the touch screen theres a hybrid button which you can enter to give details on mpg, battery usage etc.

I've had the car under a week so there may be further info lurking, I'll try and send a screenshot later
