TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Kia Niro is a dedicated subcompact hybrid crossover, the only one on the market, and it offers a good way to combine high fuel efficiency with ever-more popular crossover styling. The 2017 Toyota Prius V is the largest Prius model offered, though it's now also one of the oldest. The 2017 Toyota Prius closes the gap between "driving a hybrid" and "driving a normal car," even though it still looks like nothing else on the road.
