    While Niro sales fell, it is still my personal favorite given the larger cargo capacity of its CUV platform, affordable pricing, and world class HEV, PHEV and all-electric drivetrains. Here is some more detail on this fantastic offering.

    The 2024 Niro Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) is rated at 33 miles of all-electric range and 510 miles of total driving range while offering a best-in-class cargo room and an extensive list of standard features.

    The Niro PHEV comes in two trims, an EX ($34,390 + 1,375 D&H) and SX Touring ($40,140 + 1,375 D&H). Both are equipped with a 180 hp and 195 lb-ft. of torque 1.6L GDI and Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor.

    The standard across all trims Advanced Drive Assist Systems includes the following:
    • Blind Spot Warning w/Parallel Exit
    • Driver Attention Warning
    • Forward Collision Avoidance Assist
    • Highway Driving Assist
    • High Beam Assist

    A lot of space back there.​

    The standout outside of the PHEV with 33-miles of all-electric range from the included 11.1 kWh pack equipped drivetrain is its cargo volume. 19.4 cu.-ft. behind the second row with the rear seats up and 54.6 cu. ft. with the second row down.
