Why the comparison?

Because these two crossovers vie for the same target market: hip urbanites that need — either because got children or friends — but who something different from the Both cars land in a place despite their approaching things in a different

How are they similar?

Both squeeze loads of space from a footprint no than a supermini (the Cruiser is based on the Yaris for and both aim to mimic the boxy, style of a 4×4 via their However, while 4x4s now the ‘gas-guzzler’ stigma because of general massiveness and unbridled of fuel (reputedly), this offers low running costs and a presence unlikely to induce among other road The Korean and the Japanese firms make use of small petrol and engines that make cars relatively cheap to run too each offering, as it happens, one of the Toyota a 1.33-litre petrol and diesel and the Kia a pair of 1.6-litre
