If you're interested in upgrading to a small crossover and the new Toyota C-HR has piqued your interest, then why not see how it stacks up against the competition? Our North Little Rock, AR, Toyota dealership has put together a model comparison for you to consider when shopping subcompact CUVs like the new C-HR. Let's look at the 2021 Toyota C-HR and the 2021 Kia Sportage to see which model takes the cake in the small crossover segment.
To ensure this is a fair comparison, we'll put the 2021 Toyota C-HR LE and the 2021 Kia Sportage LX base trims against one another to see how these affordable CUVs stack up in key areas that matter to drivers.
The 2021 Toyota C-HR comes standard with automatic climate control with dual zones. This feature is only optional on the new Kia Sportage, not standard. The Toyota CUV also boasts a cargo area cover to shield your valuables from prying eyes, adding a level of security that does not come standard with a new Kia Sportage. Both models offer thoughtful amenities like a cargo area light and split-folding rear seats, but the new C-HR sets itself apart from the competition with an interior day and night electrochromic rearview mirror that reduces glare and enhances rearward visibility. This standard Toyota feature is, once again, only optional on Kia's Sportage. So, which new compact crossover gives you more? You be the judge!
Toyota's new 2021 C-HR subcompact crossover comes standard with front knee airbags, a features that the 2021 Kia Sportage does not offer. Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.5 (TSS 2.5) is a next-generation suite of driver-assist and safety technologies included on every 2021 C-HR, including the well-equipped LE base edition. This advanced safety package includes such crucial modern technologies as Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and a pre-collision system that can both help keep the C-HR a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. While Kia offers some similar driver aids as Toyota, it does not package them together in a standard safety suite on the Sportage. In other words, you'd have to pay extra and upgrade to another Sportage trim to get the full list of available driver-assist features.
When you drive a brand-new Toyota, you're treated to a complimentary no-cost maintenance plan, called ToyotaCare. This free package includes two years or 25,000 miles of routine scheduled maintenance like oil changes, as well as two years with unlimited miles of roadside assistance. That's right; Toyota backs up its legendary quality and dependability with complimentary routine maintenance, saving you money during your new Toyota lease or initial ownership period.
