Kia Niro vs VW ID.4: Performance

Niro 1Performance is a main focus for many drivers, as you want something that operates as efficiently as possible. You’ll also want something with plenty of horsepower (HP) and torque—and these models deliver. They actually produce the same amount of horsepower, at 201 HP, so you’ll be driving a powerful vehicle no matter what. However, if you’re looking for more torque, the Niro manages to show its muscle in this department.  It will provide you with 291 lb-ft of torque, while the ID.4 falls short at 229 lb-ft of torque. All-electric range is yet another important metric to consider. The two models are close when it comes to this figure. For example, the VW ID.4 offers an EPA-estimated 280 miles of range. The Kia Niro isn’t far behind, with its own EPA-estimated 239 miles of range.1 In fact, the Kia Niro was tested by AMCI (Automotive Marketing Consultants Inc.) and achieved an AMCI Testing Certified range of 293 miles! That incredible range will have you cruising along the highway in no time.

Kia Niro vs VW ID.4: Technology

An electric model is designed with lots of innovative technology. It makes sense that you’ll also find innovative advancements in these machines too. Both models come with touchscreen systems that support built-in navigation. In the Kia Niro, you’ll find a 10.25-inch touchscreen, while the ID.4 offers a similar and slightly smaller 10-inch touchscreen. Many of the same features are compatible with these screens, including the following:

  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™
  • SiriusXM®

Connect your phone via Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ integration so that you can safely use your smartphone apps while driving. Also standard is a wireless phone charger so that your device is ready to go at all times.

Kia Niro vs VW ID.4: Amenities

Amenities are an important factor in your driving. You’ll want comfortable seats and upgraded features to give yourself and your passengers an optimal experience. Luckily, both the Niro and the ID.4 come decked out with the latest options. For starters, both models are equipped with heated front seats and dual-zone climate control. You and your front-seat passengers will be treated to customized comfort as you each decide on the settings you prefer. That customization continues with the position of the seats. In the Niro, you’ll enjoy 10-way adjustable front seats with 2-way power lumbar support. The ID.4, on the other hand, comes standard with seats that only move four ways. They also come with power recline instead of lumbar support, so you may find more comfort in the Kia SUV.
