Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XT4 than in the Kia Niro EV. 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 Cadillac XT4.

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). Whether you pick the Cadillac XT4 or the Kia Niro EV, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac XT4 is much wider than the Kia Niro EV, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac XT4, which is slightly longer than the Kia Niro EV.

Handling
The Cadillac XT4 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 Cadillac XT4 has a little more horsepower than the Kia Niro EV.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Cadillac XT4 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 Cadillac XT4 more than the Kia Niro EV, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. The Cadillac XT4 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 Cadillac XT4 than that of the Kia Niro EV.
