2021 Kia Seltos First Test: Practical, Stylish, and Actually Fun



The 2021 KIA Seltos is a sub-compact SUV with plenty of smart features coupled with impeccable style and comfort to win your heart. If you’re fond of small SUVs and find the KIA brand attractive, the 2021 KIA Seltos is worth considering as a potential purchase. We review all the features this stunner from KIA promises customers, below.

Decent Engine Specifications and Two Different Trims

The 2021 KIA Seltos provides a 2l four-cylinder engine offering approximately 146hp as its base engine model. The base engine is further enabled with a two-speed constantly variable automatic transmission. 

Two different trims are made available for the 2021 KIA Seltos – the LX and the S. Pick the S for Front-Wheel Drive and improved safety features. Choose the LX if you’d rather have the Seltos in All-Wheel Drive. Plenty of additional Driver Assistance features are also made available as options for both these trims.

Enjoy Classy Styling and Design

The 2021 KIA Seltos has been designed by borrowing inspiration from its older cousin, that is, the KIA Telluride. You have your traditional SUV silhouette on the KIA subcompact SUV with a diamond-patterned grille upfront. There’s the moonroof and other plastic accents here and there to make the vehicle appear rough and rugged. You can choose to fit a two-tone roof onto your 2021 KIA Seltos vehicle as an option if you are not fond of the moonroof.

Ample Entertainment Tech to Keep You Busy

One thing is for sure, you will never get bored when you purchase this sweet sub-compact SUV offering from KIA. There are adequate entertainment features installed to ensure that you never get bored. You can use the 10.25 in touchscreen on the dashboard, powered by KIA’s UVO multimedia system, to browse through your social media or play your music when you buy the SX trim. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity features are also made available. Bose Premium Audio system makes sounds really come alive inside the cabin. You also have a 7-in infotainment screen supplied.
