Kia e-Niro, Most popular reviews January

Top 20 most popular new car reviews on whatcar.com

The surge of the electric Kia e-Niro to the top of January’s most popular review table, primarily reflects the power of What Car?’s Car of the Year Awards. However, it could also reflect the shape of things to come. The e-Niro and it’s Hyundai Kona Electric cousin are some of the first reasonably affordable electric cars. Both of which, can genuinely travel a generally acceptable distance between charges.

Henceforth, we can expect electric cars to regularly appear in this top 20. The Hyundai Ioniq, in 14th place, is also available as an electric car.

Still, older habits are strongly evident in the Volkswagen Golf’s position at number two. Which, is impressive given that the seventh-generation model is mere months away from retirement.
