We are migrants from other hybrids (Honda, then 2012 Prius V). We would have purchased a new Prius V, but in their wisdom they dropped the car and expected us to buy a RAV 4 which is a baby SUV and has much worse gas mileage than the Prius V. That wasn't gonna happen! So I found the Kia Niro, which is similar in shape (we needed a station wagon type car) but a bit smaller. Smaller is a problem, but we kept the Prius V for when we need to transport something larger.
We just drove from Texas to Maine and back and absolutely love the car. We appreciate the new technology which makes driving easier and much safer. No more blind spots! We love the smart cruise control. The very bright easy to use screen is lovely.
I don't miss driving the Prius V at all and I reallly thought I would.
We wanted a plug-in hybrid, but, well, there weren't any anywhere near our home by the time we decided we wanted a new car. Next time...
