Power Ranked 2019 BMW i3 120 Ah RWD with Range Extender better.
"More powerful electric motor, bigger battery pack"
Back Seats Ranked 2019 BMW i3 120 Ah RWD with Range Extender worse.
"The Kia Niro has real back seats with traditional back doors. More roomy than the BMW i3, though the i3 is not terrible for back seats. The Kia is more likely to be used by a family. The BMW is more suited to empty nesters who do not need to use the back seat more than once or twice a year."
