Kia Niro Is Slightly More Expensive For 2024
The Kia Niro’s prices march upward for the new year.
We love the Kia Niro, it’s a solid budget hybrid crossover that does a lot of things well. But, for 2024 the model’s in for a few price-oriented changes; the price has gone up on every model grade for the latest model year.
The price changes aren’t huge, mind you. The base Niro LX now starts at $28,165, including the $1,325 destination fee – $250 more than last year’s car. That’s the lowest price increase of all the trims, EX, EX Touring, SX, and SX Touring all have a price bump of $350. With the price change, alll but the base LX model get the configurable dual-level cargo area adjustable floor. Otherwise, there aren’t any mechanical or equipment changes to the Kia Niro, aside from the removal of the Fire Orange color option.
Now, the Kia Niro is still a likable car, but even its short time on the market has seen more competitors. At $28,165, it’s a stone’s throw from the $28,545 of the new Toyota Prius. The Prius is faster, and returns better fuel economy, even if its rakish shape isn’t quite as practical. Will the Niro stay relevant against such a stalwart in the hybrid car class? We’ll just have to wait and see.
Kia has not released any pricing news about the Niro PHEV and Niro EV. Given the modest price increases of the regular hybrid version, we’d expect the EV and PHEV models to increase in price, too.
