The 2017 Kia Niro Takes Home Guinness World Record Title
The 2017 Kia Niro, which isn’t set to arrive until early next year, is already breaking records with its performance capabilities. The crossover hybrid vehicle has recently taken home a Guinness World Record title for the lowest fuel consumption driving across the United States from coast to coast (hybrid car) with an astonishing 76.6 mpg.
“We’re extremely pleased with the Niro’s record-breaking performance,” stated Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning KMA. “We set out to build a vehicle that offers real-word utility, great looks and fantastic mileage, and setting the Guinness World Record title confirms our achievement.”
Wayne Gerdes of Carlsbad, California and Robert Winger of Williamsburg, Virginia trekked a total of 3,715.4 miles from Los Angeles City Hall to New York City Hall in the Niro EX on just 48.5 gallons (4.1 tanks) of gas.
Pretty amazing, huh? Be sure to be on the lookout for the 2017 Niro, which should be rolling into Jim Butler Kia in St. Louis, MO in the first quarter of next year!
