The 2022 Kia Niro is a hybrid that offers a lot of style and attitude for good measure. It is largely a carryover from the 2021 model year, save for the brand-new Kia logo gracing its front fascia. That just tells you how good the Kia Niro already was in the first place, so minimal updating was needed for the new model year. Still, with that being said, it is not without its fair share of competition. Plenty of other automakers want to play in the hybrid game, too. But the 2022 Kia Niro has proven that it can roll with the big boys. Let’s take a closer look at one such instance with this 2022 Kia Niro vs 2022 Honda CR-V Hybrid comparison.

|53 City / 48 Hwy / 50 Combined

||Standard Touchscreen Display Size
We tip our hat to Honda for offering up a hybrid crossover SUV that also offers a peppy engine, which sneaks past the Niro’s net horsepower. But what drivers are really looking for in any hybrid is the kind of fuel efficiency that will save them trips to the gas station, as well as plenty of money, over the long run. The 2022 Kia Niro offers significantly better fuel economy numbers in all three areas of consideration.
It isn’t as big a deal these days to deliver Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ functionality as a standard feature in today’s automobiles, but Kia is moving ahead with the times by providing a wireless means of connection. Honda hasn’t quite gotten there yet. You’ll be able to navigate those applications a little bit easier thanks to the larger eight-inch touchscreen display, which can be upgraded to an available 10.25-inch display in higher trims.
Speaking of trims, the 2022 Kia Niro is available in five: LX, LXS, LXS SE, Touring SE, and EX Premium. The 2022 Honda CR-V Hybrid is available in just three: EX, EX-L, and Touring. You’ll have a better chance at customizing the Niro to fit your needs.
