Breaking a record in the Guinness Book of World Records used to be a huge thing back in the day. Kinda like setting the new high score on old arcade games, it was always a source of pride for those who achieved them. Today, it might seem like getting in the Guinness Book for a record is a thing of the past, but that doesn’t mean people or companies have stopped trying. Take the Kia Niro for instance – it just set earned the Guinness World Record title for the lowest fuel consumption driving across the U.S. from coast to coast in a hybrid car.
The Niro crossover will be Kia’s first dedicated hybrid automobile, and although they have yet to be released, drivers and Kia fans will be pleased to know that the fancy CUV shown off at SEMA has a hybrid version with as much bark as bite. With an EPA-estimated 50 mpg combined, that’s enough to set it apart from other hybrids in its class. In fact, to make things official, Kia got together with Guinness and created a new record category just for this – a sort of “come at me bro” from Kia to the rest of the auto industry.
Kia has been killing it this year. Throughout 2016, they have won awards, released new innovative models, and they even had some pretty nifty vehicles to show off at SEMA this year. However, they’re not stopping anytime soon, seeing as how they just won another award and are continuing to reach out to their consumers.
