Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Genesis GV70 than in the Kia Niro EV. The Kia Niro EV offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Genesis GV70, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

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). The Genesis GV70 is somewhat more expensive 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 Genesis GV70 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Kia Niro EV.

Dimensions
Since the Genesis GV70 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 Genesis GV70, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Kia Niro EV.

Handling
The Genesis GV70 has a larger turning radius than the Kia Niro EV, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Genesis GV70 greatly out-muscles the Kia Niro EV.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Genesis GV70 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Kia Niro EV.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Genesis GV70 more than the Kia Niro EV, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. The Genesis GV70 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Kia Niro EV.

Warranty
The Genesis GV70 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Kia Niro EV.
