At the double. But let’s talk Korean crossover compact Guide, on the streets and crowded streets between Rapallo and Chiavari. I start with 821 km range indicated, the air conditioner plugged in and the battery about halfway through. The 2018 Kia Niro, road, easy, enjoyable and intuitive, even as management of various aircraft systems. You start in EV, moves for some stretches without thermal emissions, then enters the scene as soon as it requires more power. He still manages to get about 70 hours in electric, if you have the super light foot. Charging the battery hybrid system down quickly, so that you get quickly to the level of three quarters. Uphill of course the battery helps to push the front wheels, reducing the contribution of 1.6 petrol engine. The raised driving position is comfortable, supportive seat in your hips and torso: and the steering wheel is quite sporty, like cut and design. The visibility is good, less favourable, instead, towards the tail, because of thick uprights.

To Drive the March is particularly smooth and, when needed, the kickdown switch is pretty quick, making overtaking.

Overall, when you ask all the hybrid (141 BHP in total), the performance is suitable for the car and you always have room to disengage without problems. Managed the mix between the electric motor and the heating system, which has a noticeable, but not annoying. On the highway you travel comfortable and relaxed; the potential wind noise are very content to 130 hours, while you feel more like a rolling background, especially at the rear. At the end of the test, we have 35 km path “spending” only 20 km range, 5.7 liters/100 km and consuming totals.
