Exploring the Benefits and Features of Hybrid Vehicles at Huffines Kia McKinney

Choosing a hybrid vehicle is a great option if you’re interested in better fuel efficiency and saving money that would have otherwise gone to fuel costs. Hybrids are also a greener choice since they use an electric motor in addition to a gas engine, so they operate using less gasoline and emit fewer pollution-causing emissions.

Whether you’re looking for a compact or midsize SUV, we have a large inventory of hybrid models. You might also be interested in one of our plug-in hybrids. They give you the opportunity to drive using only the car’s electric motor for shorter trips, therefore providing the best of both worlds — a battery-operated car when you want it and a hybrid when you need it. Whatever the reason you’re considering a hybrid car, Huffines Kia McKinney has a great lineup of hybrid models to choose from.

Niro: Compact SUV with Exceptional Efficiency and Versatility

A compact SUV that packs a punch, the 2022 Niro pairs an electric motor with a gasoline engine to get the most efficient fuel capacity possible. It can get up to 48 miles per gallon on the highway and an impressive 53 miles per gallon in the city, which is significantly more than most cars powered solely by gasoline engines. Since the car uses a combination of gas and electric power, it has a range of up to 583 miles per tank, so you can go quite the distance without needing to stop for gas.

Its fuel efficiency isn’t its only noteworthy feature. The interior boasts a whopping 63.2 cubic feet of cargo space. It also has available heated and ventilated seats for those hot and cold months where such luxuries are a true gift. The Niro comes standard with an 8-inch touch screen display, but you can upgrade to the 10.25-inch display option if you’re looking for a more showy screen. It also has exceptional safety features, such as the rear occupant alert, blind-spot collision warning and lane following assist.

Niro Plug-in Hybrid: Elevating Efficiency with Electric Power

Some people interested in the Niro wonder what the difference is between the Niro and its Plug-in Hybrid counterpart. After charging the electric motor, the Niro Plug-in Hybrid can drive up to 26 miles solely on its electric motor. This is an ideal option for drivers who have short commutes to work and don’t want to leave emissions in their wake. It also saves them money while commuting to and from work each day.

Some of the other perks of the Niro Plug-in Hybrid include its ability to get about 105 miles per gallon when using both engines, and its notable 46 miles per gallon when using the gasoline engine alone. In addition, on one tank of gas, it has a range of over 500 miles.

It has notable interior features as well, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which make listening to music, responding to texts, and using navigation systems a breeze. It also has a roomy 54.5 cubic feet of cargo space, for plenty of space to store your groceries or supplies for a weekend getaway.

Sorento Hybrid: Sleek and Spacious SUV for Family Adventures

The Sorento Hybrid is a sleek SUV that seats six and is the perfect car for a road trip or weekend getaway for your family. When using the turbo-hybrid power of the gas engine and electric motor, its range is a remarkable 655 miles, which means you can certainly go the distance on one tank of gas. On the highway, it can drive up to 35 miles per gallon, while that number increases to 39 miles per gallon in the city.

Its interior boasts captain chairs in the second row for the comfort of your extra passengers. The third row also offers an extra two seats, which you can fold over and use for extra storage space. All Sorento Hybrids come standard with the 10.25-inch touch-screen display, which work with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Not only does it also have eight USB outlets throughout the car, but you can also choose to include a wireless charger in the front row so you don’t have to worry about bringing your USB chord every time you leave the house.

Sorento Plug-in Hybrid: Redefining Convenience with Electric Power

Like the Niro Plug-in Hybrid, the Sorento Plug-in Hybrid offers you the convenience of a fully electric-powered car. When fully charged, its electric motor has a range of 32 miles, which is perfect for running errands or getting to and from work. It has an equally impressive range of 460 miles when fully fueled and gets an average of 79 miles per gallon.

There are multiple charging options available for the Sorento Plug-in Hybrid. You can use a level one charge by plugging it into any normal outlet at home. For a faster charge, you can use a level two charge by plugging it in at a public station or having a level two station installed at home. This type of charge can charge the vehicle in approximately three hours and 25 minutes. 

Passengers can get comfortable because the Sorento Plug-in Hybrid boasts the most legroom in the second row of any hybrid SUV. Another notable feature includes the SmartPower Liftgate, which automatically opens the hatch of your Sorento, making it a lot easier to get groceries into the car. It also includes the blind spot view monitor, which uses a camera to show you a live feed of your blind spot. This is conveniently located in the dashboard gauge cluster.
