How Does The Kia Niro Compare to its Competition?

If you are in the Watertown, Waterbury, Bristol, Milford, or Naugatuck, CT, areas and you are looking for a highly-capable crossover, perhaps you should take a test drive in one of our new Kia Niro models! The Kia Niro is a hybrid crossover that gets outstanding gas mileage, is comfortable for passengers both in the front and in the rear, and contains enough space for any luggage, packages, or groceries that you need room for, but how does it stand up to its competition? Take a look below to see.

The 2017 Kia Niro Takes on The 2017 Honda HR-V

  • Perhaps the biggest difference between these two wonderful crossovers is the fuel economy. The Kia Niro is a hybrid and so it contains an outstanding EPA estimated 52/49 city/highway miles-per-gallon rating. The Honda HR-V provides about half of the Kia Niro's fuel economy.
  • Even though the Kia Niro receives better gas mileage, the initial price tag is still lower than that of the Honda HR-V. The base MSRP of the Kia Niro is $22,890 while the base MSRP of the Honda HR-V is $23,615.
  • Besides the money at the gas station and the upfront cost, the Kia Niro also saves you money with its basic and powertrain warranties. The basic warranty is good for 60 months/60,000 miles and the powertrain warranty lasts for up to 120 months/100,000 miles. The Honda HR-V's warranties are only around for 36 months/36,000 miles and 60 months/60,000 miles.
  • The Kia Niro has a larger over-all passenger volume that provides you and your passengers with more leg, head, and shoulder room. The cargo volume in the Kia Niro is slightly less than that of the Honda HR-V, but not so much that you will notice a huge difference.
  • In the base Kia Niro model you will find a few features that are either not available in the Honda HR-V or have to be added in the later trim levels. These features include: an auxiliary jack, overhead console storage, satellite radio, and a dual zone temperature control.
