Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Niro than in the Hyundai Venue, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia Niro will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Venue.

Convenience
With the Kia Niro, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Venue, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Clearly, the Hyundai Venue is a better financial choice over the Kia Niro, when considering MSRP.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Venue is much slimmer than the Kia Niro, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Hyundai Venue, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia Niro.

Handling
The Hyundai Venue has a smaller turning radius than the Kia Niro, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Hyundai Venue has a little less horsepower than the Kia Niro.

Powertrain
The Hyundai Venue has much lower torque than the Kia Niro, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Venue and the Kia Niro. The Hyundai Venue has significantly less cargo capacity than the Kia Niro.
