TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Kia Seltos pairs a superlative warranty and a low price to step to the front of Kia’s small-crossover lineup. The 2021 Toyota RAV4 is the meat-and-potatoes crossover for many buyers; the RAV4 Prime supplies the all-electric range. The Taos offers a winning combination of value, technology, and spaciousness that other small SUVs can’t match.
