Comparison Review

The BMW X2 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Kia Niro EV, with comparable head- and legroom. The Kia Niro EV will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X2.

Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the BMW X2, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Niro EV.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the BMW X2 or the Kia Niro EV, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X2 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Kia Niro EV.

The BMW X2 is about the same width as the Kia Niro EV. When looking at overall length, the BMW X2 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Niro EV.

The BMW X2 has a larger turning radius than the Kia Niro EV, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

The BMW X2 has a little more horsepower than the Kia Niro EV.

With its lower torque engine, the BMW X2 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia Niro EV.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X2 and the Kia Niro EV. The BMW X2 has less cargo space than the Kia Niro EV, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The basic warranty of the BMW X2 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Niro EV.
