Comparison Review

Comfort
The Dodge Journey offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Kia Seltos, with comparable head- and legroom. The Dodge Journey will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Seltos.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Dodge Journey, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Seltos.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Dodge Journey will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Seltos. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Journey is much higher than that for the Kia Seltos.

Dimensions
The Dodge Journey is a little wider than the Kia Seltos, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Dodge Journey, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Kia Seltos.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Dodge Journey transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Kia Seltos.

Handling
The Dodge Journey has a significantly larger turning radius than the Kia Seltos, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Dodge Journey has a little more horsepower than the Kia Seltos.

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Kia Seltos, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Dodge Journey has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Kia Seltos.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Journey is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Seltos.
