Hello from Southern MD

Hello All. I just purchased a used 2017 Niro EX in Metal Stream. It has 25k on it.
I went down to Norfolk VA to get it, a 186 mile trip. On the trip home I averaged 52mph, and 52.8mpg.

Here's a dealer photo, I haven't had much chance to take many of my own photos yet.



eta- this is my first car purchase in almost 20 years, I've had a rock solid 1999 Ford Crown Vic since 9/99.

I could get 15-16 driving around town. 22 on the highway. I put a Mustang motor, 3.73s, and a bunch of other mods in it over the years. I only drive 50-100 miles per week so I could go 2-3 weeks between fill ups.

Welcome! Are you planning to do any mods on the Niro?

Enjoy getting triple the mpg around town! Easier parking too, but probably not as cushy.

Cool color. Nice to see another Niro in Southern MD. We've had our '18 PHEV since last April and I think I've seen one other one in the area. Like you, it had been a while (2010 for us) since we'd bought a car. Loving it so far.

I've seen a blue one in Waldorf.
