Buying

What should I be paying?

Here’s where the old Niro excelled, and thankfully all this new style hasn’t added too much in the way of cost. 

The cheapest Niro is a Hybrid in the base spec ‘2’ trim. That starts at £27,745 in the UK, with an upgrade to the substantially better-equipped ‘3’ trim commanding a £2,750 premium. That adds the larger 10.25-inch infotainment screen but (in all but the EV) you stick with a smaller 4.2-inch dial display.

Upgrading to the top-spec Hybrid – the ‘4’ trim – means a £33,245 base price, or £33,395 if you want the sideblade painted in a contrast colour. Which you do. Top trim also brings a 10-inch head-up display, the 10.25-inch instrument cluster, heated rear seats and additional vented front seats. It also adds an electronically-opening boot, an electric sunroof and aluminium pedals.

The Niro is super safe too. It gets a five star Euro NCAP rating and many advanced driver assist systems as standard fit. Another upgrade that ‘4’ trim brings though is something called HDA 2.0. That stands for Highway Driver Assist and allows the car to change lanes itself on the motorway – all you need to do is flick the indicator on and the Niro will do the rest. 

Plug-in hybrid prices start at £33,525 for the ‘2’ trim and head right on up to £39,175 for ‘4’ trim with the contrast blade.
