April 14th, 2020 by

If you’re in the market for a family-family vehicle, chances are you’ve stumbled upon the award-winning Kia SUV lineup.

Two of our most popular options is the 2020 Kia Sportage and the all-new 2021 Kia Seltos. Although they both offer the compact storage sensibilities characteristic of the small SUV segment, they differ in key ways that might swing your decision one way or another. 

Allow the Kia experts at our Portland area dealership to explain.

What’s The Difference Between The 2020 Kia Sportage and The 2021 Kia Seltos?

A stalwart of the small SUV segment, the 2020 Kia Sportage, starting at $23,990, sticks to its roots in practicality with an updated exterior. A 2.4L, 181 horsepower 4-Cylinder engine allows the Sportage to tackle just about any road, especially when equipped with available all-wheel drive.

Extended road trips are no problem for the roomy Sportage, which offers up to 60.1 cu. ft. of storage with the rear seats folded down. When it comes to standard features, the Sportage delivers with auto emergency braking technology, lane keeping and departure technology, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration.

Making its debut on the streets of Portland is the 2021 Kia Seltos. Starting at a handsome $21,990, the Seltos packs less punch than the Sportage, yet still comes well-equipped for adventure with a 147 horsepower 2.0L 4-Cylinder engine and standard all-wheel drive capability. 

Although the Seltos technically slots into a smaller segment of SUVs underneath the Sportage, it excels in storage capacity with up to 62.8 cu. ft. of cargo volume. Like the Sportage, the 2021 Kia Seltos offers premium features as a standard, such as forward collision avoidance, lane departure warning, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, and more.
