2018 KIA Niro's Mechanical

The 4-wheel discs with Anti-Lock Braking System makes for solid stops, which is one answer to why buy the 2018 version of this vehicle. Motor Driven Power Steering makes every maneuver easier. To optimize smooth riding and responsive handling, the front suspension uses independent MacPherson struts. The rear relies on independent, multi-link suspension. Both front and rear have a stabilizer bar. If wheels slip or you otherwise lose control, both Electronic Stability Control and the Traction Control System can steady your hand by reducing engine power and adjusting braking power to individual wheels. Helping with steering direction control is Vehicle Stability Management. When you engage an emergency stop, the Brake Assist System applies additional braking force. Electronic Brake-Force Distribution varies the amount of brake pressure at each wheel so you gain more precise handling. When you start on a slope, Hill Start Assist Control holds the brakes momentarily. You then have time to move your foot from brake pedal to the accelerator without the Niro rolling down the incline.

This technology is protected by a 10-year or 100,000-mile warranty. Unlike many hybrids that use a continuously variable transmission, the 2018 KIA Niro relies on a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission that gives your smooth and fast gear changes for a more thrilling drive.
