Comparing Kia's & Toyota's Hybrid Models

One of the key advantages you'll notice when comparing the 2021 Kia Niro to its nearest competition is in passenger volume. Take the 2021 Toyota Prius. This popular hybrid car offers a versatile hatchback design, yet it still can't match the new Niro crossover when it comes to passenger space. Occupants also won't enjoy the comfort and convenience of dual-zone automatic climate control in a 2021 Toyota Prius L Eco like they would in the new Niro LX.

The 2021 Kia Niro and Toyota Prius may offer comparable pricing, but that doesn't mean these hybrids are alike in many ways.

Kia Niro Vs. Honda Insight

Can Honda's Hybrid Sedan Compete?

The 2021 Honda Insight is a formidable competitor in many ways. Honda's dedicated hybrid model sports a sophisticated design and attractive styling like the Kia model and also offers a pleasant driving experience. However, the Insight's sedan silhouette holds it back in a big way in this head-to-head comparison: it offers a mere 15.1 cubic feet for cargo. Compare that figure to the Niro's expandable cargo hold that accommodates up to 54.5 cubic feet of gear, and you can understand while many hybrid car shoppers choose the Kia model.


2021 Kia Niro LX VS 2021 Honda Insight LX
$24,690 Starting MSRP* $23,130
104 @ 5700 Horsepower @ RPM 107 @ 6000

Go the Distance with the New Niro

City and highway fuel economy are comparable in the 2021 Kia Niro and 2021 Honda Insight, that is to say, they're both highly efficient. But the Honda's fuel tank only holds 10.6 gallons, meaning you'll be able to travel further on a single fill-up of gas with the Kia Niro.

Kia Niro Vs. Toyota Corolla Hybrid in Augusta, GA

Kia's Hybrid Crossover For the Win

The second Toyota model that the 2021 Kia Niro faces in this hybrid car competition is the 2021 Corolla Hybrid, a sedan that's heavily based on the automaker's popular compact car. Like the Honda Insight, the Toyota Corolla Hybrid suffers from a cramped trunk, which holds just 13.1 cubic feet of cargo. Its passenger area isn't much more accommodating, either, as it's far more cramped than what you'll find in the Kia Niro.

Kia Niro Vs. Hyundai Ioniq

Kia Conquers the Hybrid Competition

How about Hyundai's Ioniq? The 2021 Hyundai Ioniq is a legitimate option if you're a driver who doesn't mind paying more money for a bit better highway fuel economy. Kia's Niro crossover once again outshines the competition when it comes to versatility, though, as the Hyundai Ioniq falling well short in cargo volume and passenger space.
