Time for goodbye for our Niro PHEV and soon Hi to the e-Niro

Post by iwantanirophev » Mon Jul 22, 2019 9:45 am

After many thousand miles, 999mpg, just filling the petrol tank once, it's time to say goodbye to the Niro PHEV to make way for the e-Niro. The car has served us so well and has been so smooth and hassle free that it will be a shame to see it go. Cannot wait for the e-Niro though, which will definately be much faster.

I made a review of the Niro PHEV, and will make one for the e-Niro once we have it

i enjoyed the review, and agree with most of what you said, but...
I use Lane Keep Assist all the time and it doesn't bounce me from one white line to the other...it keeps me bang centre in the lane. it sounds as if yours has a fault.
You emphasise the relaxed drive, and lack of acceleration. You don't however mention that if you want the acceleration you can always engage sports mode where the car's 0-60 is significantly faster than that stated kn the Kia specifications. i get around 63mpg when driving at 70mph in HEV mode...not the 50 or so that you suggest.
you didn't mention that the electric mileage is very speed dependent -I get 36 miles at 20-30mph 32 at 30-40 and 15-18 at 70mph.
