Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Niro EV than in the Lexus UX 250h. The Kia Niro EV will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus UX 250h.

Convenience
With the Lexus UX 250h, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Niro EV, 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). The Kia Niro EV is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus UX 250h. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Kia Niro EV will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Lexus UX 250h.

Dimensions
The Kia Niro EV is a little narrower than the Lexus UX 250h, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Kia Niro EV is slightly shorter than the Lexus UX 250h, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Kia Niro EV has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Lexus UX 250h, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Kia Niro EV and the Lexus UX 250h.
