Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Envision than in the Kia Niro EV. 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 Buick Envision.

Cost
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 Buick Envision or the Kia Niro EV, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Envision is much wider than the Kia Niro EV, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Buick Envision, which is slightly longer than the Kia Niro EV.

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

Performance
The Buick Envision has a little more horsepower than the Kia Niro EV.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Buick Envision does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Kia Niro EV.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Envision and the Kia Niro EV. The Buick Envision has significantly less cargo capacity than the Kia Niro EV.
