Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Seltos than in the Toyota Corolla Cross. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Kia Seltos and the Toyota Corolla Cross.

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 Corolla Cross, 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 Kia Seltos will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Corolla Cross.

Dimensions
The Kia Seltos is a little narrower than the Toyota Corolla Cross, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Kia Seltos is slightly shorter than the Toyota Corolla Cross, which may make it easier to park.

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

Performance
The Kia Seltos has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Corolla Cross.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Kia Seltos doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Corolla Cross.

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 Corolla Cross.

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