2018 Niro PHEV Braking Question

Hello. I came from driving a Toyota Prius to Kia Niro PHEV and I noticed that my brakes arent that responsive. Like I drove the Prius again last night and it is definitely more responsive than my new car. Is that just my preference or has anyone else felt this way? It just takes way longer (more deeper pressing) for it to slow down. This is my first Kia so I don't know if I just been used to driving Hondas and Toyotas.

Any input is appreciated!

If you are talking initial braking feel, that is all regen, not mechanical brakes. Only heavy braking or full stops will engage the mechanical brakes.
