Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln MKC than in the Kia Niro EV, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Kia Niro EV and the Lincoln MKC.

Convenience
With the Lincoln MKC, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Niro EV, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Kia Niro EV will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lincoln MKC. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Kia Niro EV is much higher than that for the Lincoln MKC.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Niro EV is much slimmer than the Lincoln MKC, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Kia Niro EV is slightly shorter than the Lincoln MKC, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Kia Niro EV transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Lincoln MKC.

Handling
The Kia Niro EV has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Lincoln MKC, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Kia Niro EV has a little less horsepower than the Lincoln MKC.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Kia Niro EV and the Lincoln MKC. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Kia Niro EV as you will in the Lincoln MKC.

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