The debate between subcompact crossovers and traditional crossovers is a tricky one. Are subcompact crossover models using their “subcompact” title too literally? Are crossovers actually bigger than their subcompact competition or does the auto world just love classifying vehicles into smaller and smaller subsections? This 2021 Kia Seltos vs Kia Sportage size comparison is here to settle that debate once and for all.
Is the Kia Sportage Bigger Than the 2021 Kia Seltos?
By looks alone, the Kia Sportage would appear to be bigger and roomier than the latest addition to the Kia lineup. But is that size difference all that monumental, and does the same go for its interior?
The amount of cargo space inside of the 2021 Kia Seltos is actually bigger than its big sibling Kia Sportage, despite the overall size difference. Inside the Seltos drivers will have more space for cargo than the Sportage, whether the rear seats are up or down. The Sportage, however, sits taller, wider, and longer than the Seltos and offers a little extra wiggle room for its passengers.
