Excellent fuel economy is not the only thing you'll get with a Prius. For those looking for a more economical car price, look no further than the Toyota Prius. The 2019 Toyota Prius LE starts at an MSRP of $24,980.
The Kia Niro EX has a higher base MSRP of $26,400. Despite the Niro's almost $2,000 price bump, it lacks a few features that come standard on the Prius. One such feature is Toyota Safety Sense® P (TSS-P).
The base Niro model doesn't have safety features comparable to TSS-P. To have similar features come standard, Niro drivers will have to get the Kia Niro Touring model (MSRP $32,250). The mid-level Niro models, Niro LX, and Niro EX, have similar safety features, but they cost extra. To get them on the Niro LX, drivers will have to add $1,450 to the price tag. Niro EX drivers will need to add an extra $1,950.
Another feature that comes standard on the Prius is ToyotaCare. This no-cost maintenance plan lasts for 2-years/25,000-miles. ToyotaCare also comes with a Roadside Assistance plan that lasts 3-years/unlimited miles.
The Kia Niro's factory scheduled maintenance program costs extra. However, they do have a Roadside Assistance plan that lasts 60-months/unlimited miles.
