Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Blazer than in the Kia Niro EV. The Kia Niro EV offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Blazer, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Chevrolet Blazer, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Blazer will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Niro EV. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Blazer will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Kia Niro EV.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Blazer is much wider than the Kia Niro EV, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Blazer, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Kia Niro EV.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Blazer has a significantly larger turning radius than the Kia Niro EV, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Blazer greatly out-muscles the Kia Niro EV.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Blazer and the Kia Niro EV. The Chevrolet Blazer has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Kia Niro EV.

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