Kia Niro SUV weight
The Niro’s hybrid technology adds extra weight to the boxy Kia and this makes it heavier than the rivals in the crossover class. The extra kilograms have an impact on the Niro’s handling and performance. But while it may be a little chunkier, it’s a good towing vehicle – with a maximum capacity of 1,300kg.
