The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Niro EV offers a roomy layout and a long driving range, but it might not add up to the stunning value elsewhere in the Kia lineup. The 2020 Tesla Model Y adapts the formula of the best-selling Model 3 and applies it to a more popular crossover style for a winning combination.
