Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Terrain than in the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid. The Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the GMC Terrain, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

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 GMC Terrain or the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid, 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. The GMC Terrain will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid.

Dimensions
The GMC Terrain is a little wider than the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the GMC Terrain, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the GMC Terrain does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid.

Handling
The GMC Terrain has a larger turning radius than the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the GMC Terrain greatly out-muscles the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the GMC Terrain and the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid. The GMC Terrain has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the GMC Terrain is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid.
