Owners are most impressed by the car’s audio system, giving it the highest rating in the survey. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard across the seven or eight-inch touchscreens, so drivers are very pleased with mobile phone connectivity as well.

Kia Niro review

And the Niro isn’t the only Kia in the category top 10; the Sportage SUV also features. In fact, the whole table proves that you don’t have to spend premium money to get the best infotainment, with cars like the Nissan Juke, Honda Civic and Ford Kuga joining the Kias in outscoring far pricier models. The sat-nav sub-category is always tough for manufacturers, and this year the Honda Civic achieved the highest score here.
