Kia Niro Hybrid vs. Hyundai IONIQ: Dimensions & Cargo Space

Due to its SUV frame, the Niro Hybrid is the best choice for Macclenny-area drivers in search of a hybrid that’s as adventurous as it is practical for everyday driving. The IONIQ offers impressive cargo space for a hatchback, but it can’t come close to matching the Niro for cargo space. As you’ll see below, the Niro’s cargo hold is nearly double the size of the IONIQ’s:

Kia Niro Hybrid

  • Total Passenger Volume – 100.9 cubic feet
  • Max Cargo Space – 54.5 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume Behind Row 2 – 19.4 cubic feet
  • Leg Room (Front/Rear) – 41.7/37.4 inches
  • Head Room (Front/Rear) – 40.1/39.1 inches

Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid

  • Total Passenger Volume – 96.2 cubic feet
  • Max Cargo Space – 26.5 cubic feet
  • Leg Room (Front/Rear) – 42.2 / 35.7 inches
  • Head Room (Front/Rear) – 39.1 / 37.4 inches

Kia Niro Hybrid vs. Hyundai IONIQ: Performance Specs

The Niro runs on a 1.6 L 4-cylinder engine paired with an AC synchronous permanent magnet electric motor. Alone, the electric motor generates 43 hp and 125 pound-feet of torque, while the gasoline engine contributes 104 hp and 109 pound-feet of torque. The IONIQ powertrain is identical: a .6L GDI DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine paired with an interior permanent magnet synchronous motor. The gasoline and electric components generate the same power here as they do for the Niro.

The IONIQ has the edge when it comes to efficiency, but smaller vehicles like hatchbacks and sedans typically get better fuel economy than larger body types like SUVs—and that’s as true for hybrids as it is for gas-powered models. Actually, the difference is smaller than you’d expect, with the Niro Hybrid SUV nearly equaling the IONIQ’s fuel efficiency for city driving.

If you’re looking for something even more fuel-savvy, don’t forget the Niro is also available as a plug-in hybrid and as an EV!
