John Challen, Editor of Fleet World, said: “In a congested and competitive segment, the Sportage stands out as a fantastic all-rounder. The upgraded interior makes the cabin even more user-friendly, while the addition of hybrid technology puts it firmly on the list of cars that fleets will be considering now and in the future. 

The all-new Niro family comes electrified as standard. There is the choice of the fully hybrid Niro HEV, the plug-in hybrid Niro PHEV, and the fully electric Niro EV.

Commenting on the Niro, Challen added: “The revised version of the popular SUV that was introduced last year has been praised far and wide for its breadth of powertrain options. Whether it's hybrid, plug-in hybrid or full EV, Kia really does have something for everyone.” .
