Electric and hybrid vehicles are all the rage these days, a sharp contrast from the comedic way people viewed them in the early 2000s. They used to have a certain stigma associated with them, often cited as being slower, weaker, smaller, and generally less viable than their counterparts. However, these days many hybrid vehicles stand toe-to-toe with conventionally-powered vehicles, even surpassing them. One example of a vehicle that does this is the 2019 Kia Niro, a crossover that stands toe-to-toe with most other vehicles in its segment.
This vehicle is competent, large, and packed full of features for you to enjoy. However, as a crossover how does it compare to other hybrid models? That’s what we’re looking to answer today by pitting the new Kia Niro against a veteran hybrid, the 2019 Toyota Prius. Continue to see how they compare!

As you can see from the chart, the new 2019 Kia Niro more than stands up to the veteran Toyota Prius. While they may not be the same class, the new Toyota Prius does provide a tough competitor, offering many great features. However, the 2019 Kia Niro does take the lead in nearly all categories. It offers amazing horsepower, great standard technologies, and a ton of space.
Not only that, but the 2019 Kia Niro also features an exceptional limited bumper-to-bumper warranty compared to its competitor. It offers a 5-year and 60,000 miles warranty compared to the 2019 Toyota Prius’ 3-year and 36,000 miles warranty. This warranty, combined with its many features, makes the new 2019 Kia Niro the better deal between these two models.
