Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X2 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Kia Niro EV, with comparable head- and legroom. The Kia Niro EV will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X2.

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 BMW X2 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Niro EV.

Dimensions
The BMW X2 is about the same width as the Kia Niro EV. When looking at overall length, the BMW X2 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Niro EV.

Handling
The BMW X2 has a larger turning radius than the Kia Niro EV, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X2 has a little more horsepower than the Kia Niro EV.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X2 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 BMW X2 more than the Kia Niro EV, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. The BMW X2 has less cargo space than the Kia Niro EV, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X2 than that of the Kia Niro EV.
