Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia EV6 than in the Nissan ARIYA. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Kia EV6 and the Nissan ARIYA.

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 Kia EV6 is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan ARIYA.

Dimensions
The Kia EV6 is a little narrower than the Nissan ARIYA, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Kia EV6 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan ARIYA.

Handling
The Kia EV6 has a larger turning radius than the Nissan ARIYA, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Kia EV6 is clearly the choice over the Nissan ARIYA for pulling heavy loads. The Kia EV6 has a little less horsepower than the Nissan ARIYA.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Kia EV6 and the Nissan ARIYA are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Kia EV6 and the Nissan ARIYA. The Kia EV6 has less cargo space than the Nissan ARIYA, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
