The winner of the contest “Women’s Car of the Year” has been named. In 2023, the title of the best car for the fair sex went to the compact crossover Kia Niro. It has been praised for its stylish design, clear yet cutting-edge technology, and relative affordability. The model is sold only in “green” versions: two hybrid (HEV and PHEV) and fully electric.
Sixty-three journalists from 43 countries have chosen the “Best Women’s Car of 2023”. There were six contenders for the title: Kia Niro (aka Best City Car), Jeep Avenger (Family Crossover), Citroën C5 X (Large Car), Nissan X-Trail (Large Crossover), Audi RS 3 (Sports Car) and Ford Ranger (All-wheel drive). According to the voting results, it was Kia Niro who awarded the award, calling the SUV stylish, technologically advanced and relatively affordable.
Niro is offered in three versions: conventional hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all-electric. Its design is based on the 2019 HabaNiro concept. And the interior is designed with an eye on the Kia EV6. Both hybrid versions are equipped with a naturally aspirated 1.6 GDI, as well as a six-speed dual-clutch automatic with no reverse gear. The feature of the machines is the ability to automatically switch to electric movement in special green areas.
