Hybrids have become a stellar mode of transportation in recent years, as they combine the full functionality of sedans and SUVs with the kind of environmentally-friendly performance that promises to lead us into a happier and healthier 21st century. Because of this, we’re beginning to see more and more vehicles like the 2019 Kia Niro and 2019 Toyota Prius dominating today’s automotive landscape. They’re both worthy options for you as a driver, but as we all know, only one can come out on top.
Deciding between the Niro (an incredible choice for those looking for crossovers) and Prius (sedans) will likely come down to a matter of preference, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t show you how they match up. Come with Boucher Kia as we do just that!
