Going green is an electric affair when it comes to Kia and this 2020 Kia Niro EV! A prime representation of Kia’s push toward revolutionizing the future of vehicles, this electric Niro is all you’ll ever desire out of a vehicle, from its dynamic style to the crossover versatility to electric power and efficiency balanced in equal measure. Highlighted by a 385 km all-electric range, the 2020 Kia Niro EV is the perfect vehicle to make your way around the Greater Toronto Area. Come to 401 Dixie Kia here in Mississauga to learn more about our hybrid/electric vehicle lineup, including the Kia Niro as an all-encompassing highlight of this mission.
Crossover versatility and space like a larger SUV, but in the size of a smaller car to stay nimble around those tight city streets, the Niro provides the best of both worlds. It’s fun to drive not only because of its spunky style, but also knowing that through the regenerative braking system you’ll be gaining energy for the vehicle every time you brake.
Every vehicle as gorgeous as this needs wheels equally as premium to match. Framed around all four corners of the Niro are 17-inch alloy wheels, providing a dynamic look that underlines the beauty of the entire vehicle.
The cabin of the Niro is so sumptuous you won’t be blamed if you want to sit and enjoy it, but a power sunroof allows the outside world a peek in, and you out to the wonders around you. Make use of the power sunroof on the SX Touring trim and experience Ontario on every trip.

There’s no messing around when it comes to the Kia Niro EV, that’s when it comes to performance, efficiency, and just simply starting and heading on your drive. A smart key provides convenient access to your crossover, with a push button start all that it takes to bring this electric performer to life.
Maybe the only thing that feels as good as knowing you’re driving efficiently is being physically comfortable yourself, no matter the conditions outside. When winter and the cold temperatures descend here in Mississauga, drive in toasty comfort on the front/rear heated seats, all the while gripping the heated steering wheel.

The Niro EV is still a pretty fresh model, having only bowed for the 2019 model year, and thus doesn’t see too much change on its 2020 model year. It did see a slight exterior update with new headlights and taillights to keep things current, as well as the updated 8-inch and 10.25-inch available screens for the trim levels.
