Crossovers are all the latest rage due to the fact that these cars bring together the best aspects of an SUV and a sedan. It’s even better when that crossover is a hybrid like the Kia Niro FE. According to the EPA, it’s earned a place as one of the top 10 top fuel sippers.


The Kia Niro FE scored high on the list

RELATED: 5 Hybrid Cars That Offer the Most Value

While there are some drivers who want a big vehicle and don’t care how much they have to pay, that doesn’t apply to everyone. Buying a fuel-efficient vehicle could be a necessity, even if it’s not exactly your dream come true.

That being said, the EPA comes out with a list of the best vehicles that won’t break the bank every year. This particular list excludes EVs and PHEVs, so keep in mind that there are vehicles out there that get better mileage when viewing this list. Mdr sophos.

The Kia Niro FE came in 5th place on the list, with an estimated 50 combined mpg. The cars that beat it out include the Hyundai Ioniq Blue, Toyota Prius Eco, Hyundai Ioniq, Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Blue, Toyota Camry Hybrid LE, Toyota Corolla Hybrid, Toyota Prius, and the Honda Insight. Several of the cars tied for fourth place, since all get 52 mpg.

It’s important to note that the Niro FE is the only crossover to make the list, which is quite the accomplishment. Consumers these days want to have their cake and eat it too when it comes to space and fuel-economy.

It’s tough to beat the Kia Niro’s specs

The Kia Niro is getting some major upgrades. It’s been a hybrid model since 2017, but Kia is releasing an all-electric version. The hybrid isn’t getting sidelined, however. It’s just getting a little better than it was before.


The Kia Niro FE is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. This combination gives it 139 hp. It’s front-wheel drive, so driving in severe snow storms or going off-road probably isn’t going to happen.

Unfortunately, it isn’t very powerful by any means, and you can forget major speed. It can only go from 0 to 60 mph in 8.6 seconds. For those who feel the need for speed, that’s probably a deal-breaker. For many people, however, this level of speed is something they can live with.

To make up for the lack of speed, Kia has added more space, bringing the cargo area up to 54.8 cubic feet. This is perfect for anyone who values space over speed. The Niro FE also comes with an 8-inch infotainment center and optional steering-wheel shift paddles that gives the driver more control when braking.

The 2020 Kia Niro FE is also shockingly inexpensive. It starts at $24,590 for the base model and starts out at $39,090 for the EV model. For anyone on a budget, that’s hard to beat. The fuel economy is probably the best part, however.

Goodbye high gas bills

The 2020 Kia Niro Fe has some seriously stellar fuel economy. It has 595 miles total range with only a 12-gallon tank, making it the perfect road trip vehicle. It’s large, roomy, and doesn’t consume gas like a camel guzzling water in the desert.

According to the EPA, “You save $2,500 in fuel costs over 5 years compared to the average new vehicle.” That’s a lot of money for many people, especially growing families who need a larger vehicle, but can’t afford the higher gas prices.

The EPA further described the gas savings drivers will get by pointing out they’ll save $650 each year, can fill the tank for only $25, and can drive 25 miles for only $1.05. No other hybrid crossover can boast of fuel savings like that for such an affordable price. It just shows how far Kia has come in recent years.
