Kia Seltos Interior Space

Kia Seltos vs Honda CR-V: Interior Space

Whether you’re taking your kids and their friends to the movies or playing tourguide for visiting friends or family, you’re going to need a Kia vehicle that supplies you with comfortable space inside the cabin. The Seltos certainly shows that it’s capable of fulfilling this requirement. The following table illustrates how the Seltos and the CR-V stand up to each other when it comes to first-row legroom and second-row hip room.


Kia Seltos

Honda CR-V

Front Legroom

41.4 inches

41.3 inches

Rear Hip room

52.8 inches

49.5 inches


While the CR-V does come close, it simply doesn’t offer the kind of comfort you’ll find in the Kia Seltos.


Kia Seltos Interior Technology

Seltos vs CR-V: Technology

The Seltos continues to pull away from the CR-V as we move on to the topic of technology. It manages to make your time behind the wheel quite convenient by providing you with a standard 8-inch touchscreen as well as an available 10.25-inch touchscreen. With either one of these, you’ll have the ability to adjust all your settings and channels just the way you like them while still being able to devote the majority of your attention toward the road in front of you.

The screens that you’ll find in the CR-V aren’t nearly as accessible. For instance, the one that comes standard only comes to five inches, and the largest available screen measures at a mere seven inches.

Kia Seltos vs Honda CR-V: Safety

The Safe Exit Assist is one particularly useful aspect of safety that you’ll only find in the Kia Seltos. This available feature keeps an eye out for objects coming from the rear of your Kia vehicle and stops the rear doors from opening if it considers such an action to be necessary.

Another feature that’s missing from the CR-V is the Rear Occupant Alert. This standard Kia Seltos feature warns you as you’re exiting your Kia vehicle that there might still be a passenger or pet in the rear seats.


Kia Seltos vs Honda CR-V: Which SUV Will You Choose?

With specs and features like the ones that the Kia Seltos provides for you, there’s no wonder that it successfully takes the spotlight away from what the Honda CR-V has to offer.
