Hello forum, my name is alexsala and i love the niro.

but

i will state my case, i currently own an 2012 petrol hyundai i30, i drive daily, for work 14 miles of wich 7 are uphill and i get o consuption of 6 liters/ 1.6 gallons per mile. my question is, am gonna be able to reduce that consuption with the niro or not.

best regards,


M. Irvine.

You would have difficulty in buying any car that would not give a better result. Are you sure your present car uses 1.6 gall. of fuel per mile?

yes, that´s what it says on the dashboard. i would gladly attach a picture if it´s possible.
to be clear, my car is non turbo petrol and do daily 7 uphill miles, maybe that´s the cause ence why i´m looking for an hybrid or diesel car.

Normally car's display litres per 100km.
Which would work out at about 47mpg

oh right, it is per 100km, but still i find the comsuption quite high. isn´t it?
and my question still stands, would the consuption be better with this car given my case?

pd: please excuse the mistake.

One more question when you guys and girls talk about niro 1st editio 2 and 3 what are you refering to?
I also heard something about a connectable version, if so when is it due?

In the UK there are four levels of trim: Niro 1, Niro2, Niro3, and Niro FE. 1 and 2 have 16"/40cm wheels. 3 and FE 18"/45cm wheels. They have increasing levels of equipment, and the FE has ADAP and smart cruise control. 16" wheels supposedly give a more comfortable ride. In the UK originally the 1 and 2 had zero annual excise duty. From April all Niros are £140 annual charge . Connected means the ability to connect a smartphone for hands free operation and traffic/camera information for the navigation.

Oh so they are the different trims.
By connectable i meant plugable as in being able to plug the car to recharge the batteries.
Any info on that?
