Canon 100D vs Canon SL3 Sensor Comparison

Typically, it's difficult to envision the contrast between sensor dimensions just by going over specifications. The pic below may offer you a more clear sense of the sensor dimensions in the 100D and SL3.

Plainly, both of these cameras have the same sensor dimensions albeit not the same MP. You should count on the Canon SL3 to offer extra detail using its extra 6 Megapixels. Higher resolution will also allow you to crop shots a bit more aggressively. The more aged 100D is going to be behind in sensor tech.
