3. Kia Niro
The 2017 Niro is a five passenger car that offers great cargo space and versatility. This hybrid is rated at 43 mpg overall, which brings it below the Ioniq in fuel economy. The city mpg rating is only 33 but the highway is an impressive 52. As with the Ioniq, the handling is not as smooth, nor is it as agile as the Prius. You’ll get a bit of a choppy ride with this car, but it does come with power driver seat for greater back support than standard seats. It also comes with some decent safety features.
