Re: What Niro to choose?

I've been demisting using cold air on the driveway at home and during the drive. It's very effective, but I do leave the steering wheel and seats warming for a few minutes with the keys in the ignition (watching from the house of course...) so it's toasty as soon as I move off. There's no tell-tale...

Re: Fuel Consumption (PHEV)

Imagine what a petrol car would do on a 2 mile journey if you've spent 10 minutes stationary to defrost. I Guess it will be about the same as running the petrol engine of the Niro for 10 minutes to defrost, and then using it for the 2 minute journey to keep the cabin de-iced. If Renault could provi...

Re: Fuel Consumption (PHEV)

Imagine what a petrol car would do on a 2 mile journey if you've spent 10 minutes stationary to defrost. Agreed, I do miss the electric heating as an ex Zoe owner and preheat while on charge is the best thing ever!!!! However with an Outlander PHEV you have to spend 40k before you get electric heati...

Re: Best and Worst Thing About Your Niro

@niroal Thanks for the dog guard recommendation. Going try without one to start with as I don't think our lab will try to jump over the back seats. So you only get 1 year Kia Assist? or as just because its a lease? @radar2018 Do you not get free map updates? Ioniq has three years of free updates bu...

Re: I'm tempted by the Kia Stinger

You got me looking on Autotrader!!!!!!
I have to admit (unlike you with your previously list) /i feel I have to own something with more than 4 cylinders before they are outlawed / priced off the road.
Can't think of many other 6 cyl cars that can avoid to 40k tax for years 2-5.

Re: Best and Worst Thing About Your Niro

We too looked at the Ioniq before the Niro & dismissed it as too small. especially as the Ioniq can't even take a roof rack. My overall economy is in the high 90s (measured on fill to fill, not the trip comp), but we do a lot of 300+ mile trips with no sensible charging. We have done over 17000 mile...
