I've been slowly looking into the possibiliy of replacing my aging 2007 RAV4 and decided to include the Niro in my shortlist. Last week I test drove the Hyundai Ioniq and this weekend I got a chance to drive both a Niro and Sportage. So far out of the three vehicles I mentioned I really liked the Niro and is probably (as of now) the leading candidate. The Ioniq felt a bit bland in terms of looks. To be honest the Niro is nothing special either but I really like the features the Touring trim has (ventilated seats should be useful here in Florida). Not sure if I'm ready to pull the trigger and I figured at this point I should probably just wait for the 2018s to come in and see what's up.
