2021 Kia Seltos vs. 2020 Honda HR-VAug 26th, 2020
The all-new Seltos brings refreshing style and value to the subcompact segment. Owners can also count on excellent efficiency, surprising interior room, two engine options, and more. It's already proving itself against established competition such as the Honda HR-V. Here, we place both vehicles in a side-by-side comparison to illustrate that point.
The 2021 Kia Seltos is more powerful and efficient
The Seltos comes prepared with naturally aspirated and turbocharged engine options that help you personalize the Seltos to your driving style. Most trims include a 2.0L four-cylinder that produces 146 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. This edges the HR-V's sole engine in both horsepower and torque.
Despite the increase in power, the Seltos is more efficient than the HR-V in several key areas. Comparing both competitors' front-wheel drive models, the Seltos earns a highway fuel efficiency of 8.2 L/100 km, which is better than the HR-V at 8.4. Even more, the 2.0L AWD Seltos models feature a 8.8 L/100 km and 7.6 L/100 km (city/highway) rating, whereas the AWD HR-V trims are less efficient with a 9.1 L/100 km and 7.7 L/100 km rating. The savings in fuel and reduced emissions pays off over the life of your ownership.
The Seltos SX Turbo adds an extra dimension to your driving with a 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It delivers 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque, perfect for drivers who seek more response and performance during every trip.
The 2021 Kia Seltos increases capacity
With 1,778 litres of cargo volume behind the front seats, the Seltos provides 110 more litres of cargo volume than the HR-V. That will fit extra bags, gear, and much more. Occupants receive more front leg room and rear head and shoulder room in the Seltos. Whether you are entertaining friends and family, you can have a peace of mind about their comfort.
Each Kia Seltos trim features an exciting set of standard and available equipment. However, some amenities are exclusive to the Seltos and not found on the HR-V. These include: a heating steering wheel, heated rear seats, cooled front seats, driver-adjustable lumbar, heads-up display, and a blind spot monitor.
