Kia Seltos 2019: Is it too small?

I've test driven a top spec 2019 Kia Seltos, and it felt roomy and up to date. What is your opinion on how it compares to the Toyota RAV4 and the Subaru Forester. Would I be going too small if I got a Seltos?

The question of whether the Kia is too small compared to the Subaru or Toyota really comes down to your individual situation, Greg. However, while the Seltos is marketed as a competitor for the Mazda CX-3 or Hyundai Kona it is much larger than both those compact cross-overs, measuring up only 40mm shorter than its larger Sportage sibling! It is a great-looking machine but I’d go for an all-wheel-drive model to avoid the 2WD’s antiquated torsion-beam rear-end.
