Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Seltos than in the Hyundai Venue, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Venue and the Kia Seltos.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Venue as you will with the Kia Seltos, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). Clearly, the Hyundai Venue is a better financial choice over the Kia Seltos, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Venue will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Kia Seltos.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Venue is a little narrower than the Kia Seltos, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Hyundai Venue, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia Seltos.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Hyundai Venue doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia Seltos.

Handling
The Hyundai Venue has a smaller turning radius than the Kia Seltos, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Hyundai Venue has a little less horsepower than the Kia Seltos.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Venue and the Kia Seltos. The Hyundai Venue has significantly less cargo capacity than the Kia Seltos.

Warranty
The Hyundai Venue comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Kia Seltos.
