The 2018 Kia Niro for Lake Geneva: Leaving a Small Foot in Big Foot

Those lucky enough to live idyllic Lake Geneva get to enjoy the peacefulness of small town living most of the year along with the excitement of an active city come summer. It's a place of dualism and one with a great history and one that extends far, far back as people have been attracted to Geneva Lake's clear waters for millennia. The first recorded people that we know of to live here were the Potowatomi and a recent name for this settlement was Maunk-suck, meaning Big Foot and in reference to one of their chiefs. Since before that era to today, the beauty of Geneva Lake has sustained and entertained so many and one way to continue its legacy and help the overall environment is by committing to a smaller carbon footprint. And one way of doing that is to invest in a plug-in hybrid vehicle like the 2018 Kia Niro.

The 2018 Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid is an amazing crossover hatchback that is quite possibly the best vehicle to debut this year. It's comfortable, it's a great driver, and its plug-in hybrid capabilities make it a positive overall choice for the environment. Just see why so many people are fawning over this vehicle and why you just might too:

The 2018 Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid for Lake Geneva: Big Personality in a Compact Package

  • Long all-electric range + high fuel economy. The 2018 Kia Niro Plug-in variant gets an awesome 26-mile all-electric range. Which, given that the village of Lake Geneva is less than 7 square miles, that's plenty for the average resident's day-to-day driving. For those who need to go further, the hybrid engine will kick in and you'll still enjoy incredible fuel economy with its 46 combined miles per gallon.
  • Tons of interior space. The electric and hybrid market isn't particularly renown for being cargo-friendly, but the 2018 Kia Niro is. This model is built more as a crossover than a hatchback and that really shows in the second-row seats and the cargo area behind that second-row. The model was built on a wider and longer design than its competitors and so when you get inside, occupants will notice significantly more headroom, legroom, and hip room in all five seats. Behind those rear seats is an ample 19 cubic feet of space so that Lake Geneva owners can pack in all their gear, whether that's shopping bags or fishing supplies.
  • Fun to drive + easy to handle. Most hybrids come paired with a basic continuous variable transmission, but not this one. The 2018 Kia Niro comes outfitted with an incredibly responsive and seamless-shifting dual-clutch automatic transmission. This unique switch-up gives the vehicle a sportier feel behind the wheel and gives it a more powerful acceleration capability as it can handle climbing up steep inclines without issue. If you have avoided hybrids in the past because you didn't like how they handled on various road conditions, then you will really appreciate the big difference here and notice just how much better the Niro drives than all of its hybrid competitors.

Your Kia Maintenance Schedule

There's a lot of work that goes into owning a car, especially if you want to keep yours in good shape for many miles to come. The best way to make sure your Kia lasts a long time and runs smoothly the whole time you drive it is to schedule regular maintenance. In fact, a little bit of maintenance can save you tons of potential repair costs. One of the toughest parts about keeping up with maintenance on your Kia is knowing when it's time to take your car to a mechanic. The best thing you can do is talk with your local Kia dealer and figure out a schedule for when you can take your car in. If you're in the Madison, WI, area, the best place to schedule your Kia service is Russ Darrow Kia of Madison.

Finding Your Kia’s Maintenance Schedule

Determining how often you need to have your Kia serviced starts with figuring out the recommended intervals between various types of service. For example, your tires need to be changed a lot more often than transmission fluid but not nearly as often as you should change your oil. You can find more information about the recommended intervals between each type of service by reading your owner's manual or talking to a mechanic.

In addition to keeping up with the little maintenance tasks, you should also have a tune-up done at certain milestones to make sure you're keeping everything in good shape. A lot of mechanics will recommend you have a 30,000, 60,000 and 90,000-mile maintenance appointment at the very least. However, you should never wait until the next maintenance appointment if you think there's something wrong with your Kia.
