Kia Niro Owner Reviews
She works in Human Resources and also runs her own business teaching CSEC and SEA Classes. You can check her out on Facebook, Instagram or web: ashleysclasses.com. Ashley says the Niro has ...
"... adjustable seats, sun roof, wireless charging port, clean music and safety sensors. This makes the ride feel very comfortable and safe. The car is extremely quiet and makes you feel like you're driving on the clouds. What I like most about the Niro is my ability to drive to work and back home everyday without having to stop by the gas station for the entire week! To fill the tank is about $150 and that can last you between 1 week to 1 month depending on the distance. It's really cost efficient."
What about Derek & his family?
They're camera shy but this finger family pretty much sums them up. He's a project supervisor and enjoys volunteer work. Derek says:
"I do a lot of driving for work. I get 850km per tank. Great value! It's also very quiet and I love the way it greets me with open wing mirrors. Really though, best part is no one beats me off the line at a traffic light!"
His wife Stacey says:
"My husband always likes the car cold cold but with dual ac he could freeze as much as he wants. I would love to have the car to do groceries etc, but my husband loves it more than me."
Kayleigh, his daughter, has her say as well:
"I love the spacious back seat and I can sleep easily. Very comfortable!"
Spends her day making sure numbers add up. She's an accountant and has been keeping a close eye on the numbers of her Niro dashboard. This is what she has to say:
'My Kia Niro offers me so much savings, savings on time and money. Two trips to the gas station at $160 for the month. The average mileage is 1018 km per tank. Sleek, stylish, quiet, saves the environment and saves me time and money.'
Ricky and Roshelle work in the music industry
'This Kia Niro was the best present ever. The commute between Pos and San Fernando is now so much less stressful. The gas bill has reduced tremendously and the drive is super quiet and very comfortable. Why didn’t we get this vehicle sooner!'
