Should you buy one?

The Kia Niro starts at less than £24,000, is available with very competitive finance, and presents as an entirely companionable proposition. It’s quiet, practical and undeniably spacious, drives smoothly and handles reasonably tidily.

The all-electric E-Niro represents what we think is the best of the bunch, with a solid feel, peppy performance and low running costs.

However Kia struggles to offer promising finance and the E-Niro in particular is suffers relatively high APR on its PCP deals. This may in theory be mitigated by a deposit contribution but make sure you do your sums and find out exactly what you’re going to be in for each month.
