Having just picked up a Niro after pitting Ford and Kia against one another, I must say that a purpose-built hybrid is better. The Ford had some nice bits (programmable passenger seat, brake coach, code unlock on the door, built-in garage door opener), but the engine kicked on more aggressively and more quickly, the trunk was worthless, and the front seats were narrow.
Ride was pretty smooth and quiet in the Ford, but I take trips long enough that I need a comfortable seat and a trunk. Kia also gets the nod for having multiple trim levels in the PHEV vs Ford's model of offering it for a small markup over standard, but only with all the options.
