2020 Honda CR-V vs. 2021 Kia Seltos
Anyone who has been out on the road in the last several years has probably noticed the breadth and depth of the crossover SUV segment. These vehicles are flexible and are coming increasingly well-equipped. Potential buyers visiting the Meridian Honda showroom and who are interested in experiencing this automotive phenomenon often turn their attention to the latest Honda CR-V. For the current model year, a comparison of the 2020 Honda CR-V vs. 2021 Kia Seltos will help customers choose the best crossover SUV to meet their needs. The 2020 CR-V is available in four primary trim grades, LX, EX, EX-L and Touring. All of them offer more standard performance and cargo volume than its new Kia Seltos rival. Additionally, independent reviews have praised the 2020 CR-V for its eager acceleration without sacrificing fuel economy* as well as its spacious and adaptable interior.
The clearest difference between the 2020 CR-V and 2021 Seltos is physical size. Both crossover SUVs have two rows of seating that can hold up to five passengers. A driver and front passenger in the 2020 Honda CR-V will have about as much legroom as what is available in the 2021 Seltos, however, the Honda crossover SUV is able to make several more inches of legroom available to rear passengers. When it comes to cargo volume, the 2020 Honda CR-V holds a clear advantage over the 2021 Seltos. There is 39.2 cubic-feet of cargo volume available in the 2020 CR-V when people are using the rear seat. That cargo space can be expanded to 75.8 cubic-feet when the seat is folded down.
