Here at Huffines Kia Corinth, we have a selection of cars and SUVs that can fit your unique driving needs. You’ll find a variety of engine options, including gas, electric, and hybrid, to consider depending on your lifestyle. Let’s look at some of the Kia models that offer the best gas mileage and fuel efficiency.
This hybrid crossover offers excellent gas mileage. The 2019 Kia Niro boasts a 51 mpg fuel economy when driving in the city and slightly less on the highway at 46 mpg. The plug-in electric versions of this car can get a combined fuel economy of 105 mpg. With several charging stations around Corinth, this may be your most efficient option.
The Kia Niro comes with the standard 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine that can put out up to 139 horsepower with its hybrid technology. With blind-spot detection and a lane-keeping assist system, you’ll be kept safe while driving long distances. When you’re driving on cruise control, you can maintain certain speeds with less impact on the gas, which can help you maximize your fuel efficiency. The Niro’s regenerative braking also helps pump energy back into the battery when you slow down, increasing the efficiency of the lithium-ion battery.
SUVs aren’t typically known for their fuel economy, but you’ll find a combined fuel economy of 26 mpg on the 2022 Kia Sorento. When you are driving around a city, you can expect up to 24 mpg, and cruising on highways can get you to 29 mpg.
With all-wheel drive and available turbo powertrain, the Sorento is built for performance. You can also get an engine upgrade for the 2.5-liter turbocharged engine to put out up to 311 pound-feet of torque and gain additional off-roading capabilities. With cornering control, higher clearance, and tons of storage space inside, this could be the fuel-efficient car that takes you on your next adventure.
The 2022 Kia Telluride boasts a 23 mpg combined fuel economy, which is a little lower in gas mileage than the other SUVs. This means you’ll see 20 mpg when city driving and 26 mpg on the highways.
