Comparison Review

Comfort
The Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

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 Plug-In Hybrid will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Both the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
The Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid has much lower torque than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.
