Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Seltos than in the Toyota C-HR. The Toyota C-HR will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Seltos.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Seltos as you will with the Toyota C-HR, 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). The Kia Seltos is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota C-HR. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Kia Seltos will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota C-HR.

Dimensions
The Kia Seltos is about the same width as the Toyota C-HR. When looking at overall length, the Kia Seltos takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota C-HR.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Kia Seltos doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota C-HR.

Handling
The Kia Seltos has the same turning radius as the Toyota C-HR, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Kia Seltos and the Toyota C-HR.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Kia Seltos and the Toyota C-HR. With the Kia Seltos, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota C-HR.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Seltos than that of the Toyota C-HR.
