I'm really looking forward to seeing and test driving the new Niro as soon as it becomes available here in So Cal. I love the way it looks. I've had my very dependable little Ford Escort SE Wagon for 17 years now and I'm ready for a change. I think I would really enjoy a small practical 50 mpg Hybrid wagon. My concerns are Ingress/Egress, front seat comfort and price. since it is a totally new model I will be hoping that I don't have to use that long warranty very often, if at all.
