Ex Toyota Hybrid now Kia Niro Hydrid

Hi all,
I’m brand new here.
I’ve just bough a second hand Kia Niro first Edition and will be interested to see, I the longer term, how it compares to my Auris hatchback on which I put 80,000 miles over 6 years, having bought it with 20k on the clock, before selling it privately and getting the Niro.
So far so good, I’m getting circa 55mpg on the 18 inch rims.
Wonder how much better, if at all, the mpg would be if it had 16 inch rims?

I did a compare and contrast posting a year or so ago after I had a Toyota C-HR as a hire car for a while.

I’d be interested in your thoughts; in summary I thought the Toyota cabin was a bit over-designed, but with better feel of quality than the Kia. The Niro is more practical (boot space) and has a far better drivetrain though.
