The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.2
5.8
6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Honda HR-V oozes with practicality, though gas mileage and safety equipment have room to improve. The 2021 Kia Seltos combines the practicality of the hatchback Soul in a larger package with the automaker’s low price and superlative warranty. The 2021 Subaru Crosstrek flexes a more potent available powertrain but still prioritizes safety and capability.
