Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Bolt EUV offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Bolt EUV will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid.

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 Chevrolet Bolt EUV or the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid, 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 Chevrolet Bolt EUV carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Bolt EUV greatly out-muscles the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid.

Powertrain
