Have you heard? There’s a new SUV on the block representing Kia—the all-new 2021 Kia Seltos in Concord, CA! This new SUV, which sits between the Soul and the Sportage in the Kia lineup, is designed to be rugged yet efficient, ready for adventure in the great outdoors and capable of the daily grind in the city. Tailor-made for those who seek to think outside the box, the Seltos has much to offer.
This versatile and spirited crossover is available in five trims: LX, EX, S 2.0L, S 1.6T, and SX. Front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive variants are available, and you can even take advantage of the available all-wheel drive torque vectoring for a more dynamic ride. Its 7.2-inch ground clearance and sculpted, athletic design make it an ideal vehicle for your drives off the beaten path.
The 2021 Kia Seltos offers a long wheelbase and hood for a stronger appearance, and the lower front bumper allows for a sharper approach angle. You’ll also be able to fit the Seltos with 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels for an even more sophisticated appearance.
For efficiency, you’ll have the 2.0-liter four-cylinder MPI engine that produces 146 power and 132 lb-ft of torque. For more power, equip the Seltos with the available1.6-liter Turbo GDI engine, which doles out 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.
The Seltos was designed with a cabin tailored to the driver experience. A wide instrument panel makes things clear, while the surprisingly roomy interior will offer generous leg room in both of the rows to help ensure each passenger is comfortable.
These days, technology for safety, convenience, and entertainment is vital for any vehicle, and the new Seltos delivers the goods. The Seltos supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as a standard feature, so if you have a compatible device, you’ll be able to synchronize your phone to the vehicle and use select applications and send and receive messages and calls hands-free. Speaking of smartphones, you can take advantage of the available three USB charging ports or even go with the available wireless smartphone charging feature so you won’t have to worry about running out of battery life while on the road.
Safety is also key, and the Seltos offers the available Kia Drive Wise system, which includes such available features as Blind Spot Collision Warning, Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist, and more.
