Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XT4 than in the Kia Niro EV. The Cadillac XT4 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Niro EV.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Cadillac XT4, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Niro EV.

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 Cadillac XT4 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. Both the Cadillac XT4 and the Kia Niro EV have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac XT4 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 Cadillac XT4, which is slightly longer than the Kia Niro EV.

Handling
The Cadillac XT4 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 Cadillac XT4 has a little more horsepower than the Kia Niro EV.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Cadillac XT4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia Niro EV.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Cadillac XT4 and the Kia Niro EV. The Cadillac XT4 has less cargo space than the Kia Niro EV, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Cadillac XT4 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Niro EV.
