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. The Kia Seltos will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Venue.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Venue will have less of an impact on your bank account 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.

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.

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