2019 Kia Niro FE, LX, EX, S Touring, and Touring Trim Level Comparison

Kia’s beloved hybrid is back with the 2019 Kia Niro. However, for its new year model, Kia has added an additional trim level to the Niro. Now with 5 trim levels, we thought it’d be helpful to differentiate the trim levels of the new Niro. So, that’s exactly what we’re going to do. Here are the differences between the 2019 Kia Niro FE, LX, EX, S Touring, and Touring trim levels!

2019 Kia Niro Powertrain

Before we get into the differences, know that every 2019 Kia Niro trim level has the same powertrain. That consists of a 1.6L inline 4 engine, a full parallel hybrid system, and a lithium-ion polymer battery. Combined power outputs equate to 139 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.
