Hello from Albuquerque
Former Prius owner (2007-2014) turned Honda Accord owner very much interested in a 2019 Kia Niro.
I have not test drove this vehicle yet, but I am impressed with all the videos on the Niro on YouTube. I am also impressed with its gas mileage.
Call me a tree-hugger; I don't want to burn fossil fuels any more than I have to. That's why I am currently focused on the Niro. I would go the all-EV route, but, for a variety of reasons, an EV for me is not practical at this time (2018).
If I buy the Niro, I plan to keep it for seven years. Hopefully in the year 2025 or so, owning an EV will be practical for me.
