Kia Niro Hybrid (2016-2022) running costs

A Toyota Prius may be a little more economical, but the Niro Hybrid still impresses

The Niro hybrid looks like great value thanks to its high specification whatever trim level you choose, and the Benefit-in-Kind rate for company-car drivers is reasonable, too. You can also consider the more stylish Hyundai Kona Hybrid, which gets the same powertrain and also has a high standard specification.

Kia Niro Hybrid insurance group

The Kia Niro falls into insurance groups 11 to 13 depending on what trim you choose, so it'll be an affordable car to insure and comparable with other family hatchback likes the Volkswagen Golf, as well as alternative hybrids like the Toyota Prius or Corolla.

Warranty

The seven-year/100,000-mile warranty handed out by Kia covers the whole car, including its hybrid powertrain. You won’t find better cover on any rival.

Servicing

The Kia Niro has 10,000-mile service intervals, or requires annual servicing if you don’t drive that far. Costs will be reasonable, with Kia offering a three-year all-inclusive deal at around £450.

Road tax

As none of the Kia Niro hybrid range crosses the £40,000 threshold, road tax (VED) is £145 a year after the first year of ownership.

Depreciation

Experts reckon a Kia Niro hybrid will be worth between 45 and 49% of its new price at three years/36,000 miles – higher-spec versions losing the most in both percentage and real terms. It’s a decent performance, though, and compares well to rivals.
