Comparison Review

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

Since the Dodge Hornet 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 Dodge Hornet, which is slightly longer than the Kia Niro EV.

With the Dodge Hornet, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Kia Niro EV. When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Hornet greatly out-muscles the Kia Niro EV.

Due to its much higher torque, the Dodge Hornet does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Kia Niro EV.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Dodge Hornet and the Kia Niro EV.
