Price & Warranty Comparison: 2018 Toyota Prius Two vs. 2018 Kia Niro LX
When you purchase a 2018 Toyota Prius, it comes standard with the ToyotaCare plan which includes 24-hour roadside assistance for three years and scheduled standard maintenance at no extra cost for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. Restrictions apply. See a Toyota dealer for details and exclusions.
The 2018 Kia Niro LX does not come with a no-cost scheduled maintenance plan. Roadside assistance is included with the Niro’s warranty for 60-months or 60,000 miles, but Kia will only cover these services up to $75 per incident: Towing to Kia dealer or alternative service location in the event of a warranty-related disablement, Out of gas assistance (maximum two times per year, two gallons of gasoline), Flat tire assistance, Jump start assistance, Lock out assistance, and Trip interruption expense benefits in the event of a warranty-related disablement occuring more than 150 miles from home and repairs taking more than 24 hours to complete (limited to $100 per day, maximum three days).
With ToyotaCare , you have roadside assistance with a no cost-per-occurrence limit, but the covered services are limited to Battery Jump Start, Lockout Protection, Emergency Fuel Delivery, Tire Service (impaired tire replaced with your inflated spare), Towing (to the nearest Toyota Dealership), and Winching (includes extrication from any ditch, mud, sand or snow. To be applicable for the service, the vehicle must be immediately adjacent to a regularly traveled road and capable of being serviced with standard servicing equipment). These services are covered for three years and are valid only in the continental U.S. and Alaska.
Be sure to consider the warranty comparisons between the Prius Two vs. Kia Niro LX as well as the price when you are determining which car has greater value for your investment.
