2022 Kia Niro vs. Its Competition

2022 Kia Niro
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Niro’s competition runs the gamut, from dedicated hybrids such as the Honda Insight and Toyota Prius to small crossovers including the Subaru Crosstrek.

You’ll want to consider your real-world needs, but odds are that the Niro will suit your lifestyle just fine.

If it’s a fully electric car you’re after, consider the Volkswagen ID.4, too, which has a long electric range and an affordable price tag.
