WANT proof that SUVS sell? Look no further than the Kia Niro. Its petrol-electric hybrid running gear apes the Toyota Prius, but it gets a rugged look to appeal to buyers.
There isn’t much off-road substance to the styling, and no four-wheel drive, so you may as well go for the cheapest version, with company car-friendly CO2 emissions of 88g/km and 74.3mpg official economy. Plus, Kia has bolstered the range with a plug-in hybrid claiming nearly 220mpg.
