Comparison Review

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

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Ford Flex, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Niro EV.

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 Ford Flex or the Kia Niro EV, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford Flex and the Kia Niro EV have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Flex is much wider than the Kia Niro EV, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Flex, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Kia Niro EV.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Flex doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia Niro EV.

Handling
The Ford Flex has a significantly larger turning radius than the Kia Niro EV, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Flex greatly out-muscles the Kia Niro EV.

Utility
The Ford Flex offers greater seating capacity than the Kia Niro EV, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Ford Flex, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Kia Niro EV.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Flex is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Niro EV.
