All-new Kia Niro named 2023 ‘Car of the Year’

Kia Niro Hybrid (

The most popular website for getting cars,, says that the newest Kia Niro is the best new car on the market.

Three out of the 18 categories were won by the Niro, which comes with a choice of hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or fully electric powertrains.

The judges at Carbuyer couldn’t believe how much Kia has changed this second-generation Niro. Editor Richard Ingram said, “The fabulous new Niro builds on everything we loved about the old one, but with sharper styling and a cutting-edge interior. It’s our favorite small family car, our top hybrid, and of course our overall Car of the Year.”

“It’s still a useful, fuel-efficient, and simple-to-drive family car, and there are different powertrains to choose from.” We are very proud to give our 2023 Car of the Year award to the Kia Niro.

Kia wasn’t the only Korean car company that stood out at this year’s Carbuyer Best Car Awards. The Hyundai Tucson, which was named Carbuyer’s overall Car of the Year just one year ago, won the award for Best Family Car. For the second year in a row, the Hyundai i20 N won the award for Best Hot Hatchback. Finally, the SsangYong Musso won the Best Pickup award because it was a good deal, very useful, and came with a lot of extras.
