With all the 2023 model year vehicles rolling out, you might have your eye on a few of the latest EVs on the market. The 2023 Kia Niro EV is particularly impressive, getting a complete redesign across its hybrid, plug-in hybrid (PHEV,) and electric fleet. Another top contender on your list might also be the 2023 Volkswagen ID.4, which is already impressing industry critics in a big way. So, how do you know which EV model is best for you? Here’s a comparison to help you make your purchasing decision. There are three distinct advantages the 2023 Kia Niro EV has over the 2023 Volkswagen ID.4.

1. The Kia Niro EV has more value

Before diving into the specs, performance metrics, and features, the first noticeable advantage to consider between the Kia Niro EV and the Volkswagen ID.4 is the price. Kia lists the all-new Niro EV EX with a starting MSRP of $39,450. The other available trim, the SX, starts at $44,450. In comparison, you’ll have a few Volkswagen ID.4 trims from which to choose, starting at the base-level Standard trim, costing $37,495, up to the ID.4 AWD Pro S Plus, which starts at $53,745, according to VW. While the available equipment for each trim will vary, you’re getting more bang for your buck with either Kia Niro EV trim and less than $45,000 for the top-of-the-line version.

2. The Volkswagen ID.4 is less energy efficient

If you’re buying an EV, you’re likely also interested in fuel efficiency and miles of range per charge. The 2023 Kia Niro EV comes out ahead again, achieving 253 miles and quicker charging times of 10% to 80% of charge in under 45 minutes, according to Kia Media. Alternatively, VW Media says the new ID.4 Standard comes with an EPA-estimated range of 209 miles. VW did swap out batteries for other trims, including the ID.4 Pro, which now has an 82-kWh power pack, providing a range of 275 miles. Still, you’ll pay more for the bump in trims.

Car and Driver shared the details of the 2022 VW ID.4, including its MPGe of 104 MPGe city and 89 MPGe highway. For comparison, the 2023 Kia Niro EV achieved 126 MPGe city and 101 MPGe highway ratings. For combined ratings, the ID.4 received 97 MPGe, and the Niro EV received 113 MPGe. So, the Niro EV is the clear victor when it comes to fuel economy. Adding the better range to the pricing advantage, you might already be ready to buy a Niro EV.

3. Kia has a better warranty than Volkswagen

Ownership experience for the long term might also help you decide which EV to buy. When comparing Kia and Volkswagen’s warranty coverage, Kia surges ahead again. When you buy a 2023 Kia Niro EV, you’ll enjoy a standard warranty coverage of five years or up to 60,000 miles. Additionally, the Kia Niro EV powertrain has a ten-year, 100,000-mile warranty. Alternatively, the 2023 Volkswagen ID.4 comes with a four-year, 50,000-mile warranty. When it comes to the ID.4 powertrain, VW offers a four-year, 50,000-mile coverage plan. So, should things go awry with your EV down the road, the Kia warranty provides a longer set of terms and protections.

Still, before you buy any EV in 2023, take a closer look at both the 2023 Kia Niro EV and the 2023 Volkswagen ID.4. Both are worthy contenders, although the Niro EV does present these three advantages. So, if value, fuel economy, and warranty coverage matter to you, you’ll likely be ready to bring home a Niro EV of your own.
