Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Edge than in the Kia Niro EV. The Ford Edge offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Niro EV, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Ford Edge, 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 Ford Edge 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 Destination Charge for the Ford Edge is much higher than that for the Kia Niro EV.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Edge 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 Ford Edge, 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 Ford Edge doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia Niro EV.

Handling
The Ford Edge 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
The Ford Edge has a little more horsepower 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 Ford Edge and the Kia Niro EV. With the Ford Edge, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Kia Niro EV.

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