The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
4.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
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 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a respectable value, but it’s sluggish and dated in most respects.
