After seeing the ads during the Super Bowl, I was interested in the Niro as a hybrid vehicle...knowing that my next vehicle would be a green vehicle.
After doing much research, my wife and I decided on the touring because we wanted the Deep Cerulean Blue with light gray leather interior with that neat blue stitching. Couldn't find one locally so we had our dealership order one. After almost 2 months..it finally came in yesterday from South Korea!

Thanks to all the people on here who share and helped us make an informed decision. We are coming from a 2002 Honda CRV (back when 6 disc CD changer and a moonroof was premium)...so this is like going from the stone age to the future. We went to the Auto Show this year to confirm that there wasn't another car in our price range that could compete with the features/economy/warranty.
It certainly has a WOW factor!

Nice, that's the color I really wanted for my '18 Touring but nobody had that trim in the C Blue here in Socal. I needed to get my lease going so not hating the available "Rich Espresso" I went for it. You'll love the car it's got a great ride even on our crappy LA roads. I'm getting 49-50 mpg 2nd tank...at least on the computer that is. My first fillup was 47.5 mpg, not shabby at all for a car that's EPA rated lower. Of course I drive like a Hybrid owner :}=

Absolutely! I'm learning how to keep it in EV mode as much as possible. Love that sweet spot where you're crusing in EV at 35-40mph...that's when the MPG gauge goes up! Gas up to speed, let off the gas and then feather the throttle in EV.

Congrats... Chis2k i really like this color.. better than the darker blue gravity.

You guys in the States have more color option (seats color) that we do up north. Here, its black.. all black...!!

and the Deep Cerulean Blue is called Ocean Blue over here.!
