The Kia e-Niro and Hyundai Kona Electric are among the best compact electric SUVs: practical enough for family life and with enough range to cover most journeys without you having to worry too much about the battery running out of charge.
There are, however, some significant differences between the two cars that could prove crucial to deciding which one could best meet your needs. You can find out everything you need to know in this guide, where we’ll compare the Kia e-Niro and Hyundai Kona Electric in the most important areas to help you decide which one is best for you.
Both the e-Niro and Kona Electric were first sold in 2018. A brand-new version of the e-Niro (renamed Niro EV) was introduced in summer 2022 but we’re focusing here on the original, sold from 2018 to 2022. The Kona Electric was updated in 2021 with a few design and specification changes, but it’s fundamentally the same car that it was in 2018.
