The All-New 2021 Kia Seltos: What is it?Jan 16th, 2020
What is Kia’s Next SUV All About?
For the past ten years, Kia has been all about shaking up the stagnant automotive industry. Their line-up has been challenging the staid mass-market players to offer more for less – better value, more car, less monotony. And all with Kia’s own distinctive attention-grabbing style.
Models like the Kia Soul, Kia Optima, Kia Niro, and Kia Telluride have shown drivers that there is profound freedom in casting aside the run-of-the-mill boxes other brands have stuck to for years.
One item that has been absent from Kia’s lineup, however, has been a source of speculation even for us. It’s a subcompact crossover with the all-weather handling of all-wheel drive.
Valued not only northern and high-altitude climates where snow and ice are a consideration, all-wheel drive allows vehicles to traverse uncertain terrain with confidence. They also make great vehicles for driving on sand at the beach, or in torrential coastal downpours.
Kia’s omission in this field has been a curious one, but it’s coming to an end.
The 2020 Kia Seltos is here to bring Kia’s unique, enjoyment-driven personality to the subcompact crossover space.
And what a subcompact crossover it is.
The Seltos is your new favourite accessory that also just happens to be All-Wheel-Drive. Available LED headlamps light up the road and get attention along the way. The available 18” machine-finish alloy wheels and instantly iconic front grille compliment the overall design. It’s designed to get noticed, no matter where you take it.
The Seltos is basically a smartphone that seats five. The 10.25” multimedia screen makes navigation a breeze, and when paired with Apple CarPlay® or Android AutoTM, you can safely connect with your phone, hands-free, to access important apps, text, and music. Take your connectivity even further with UVO IntelligenceTM, our exclusive app that connects you to a world of support services that enhance security, comfort, and confidence, every time you get behind the wheel.
Seltos incorporates a whole new level of safety into every driving experience. Advanced safety technology like Forward Collision Avoidance Assist, Lane Follow Assist, Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist, and Rear Cross-Traffic Avoidance Assist can be employed when they’re needed most, giving you comfort and peace of mind on every trip.
When can you get your hands on one of these hot rides? We expect the Kia Seltos to drop early March 2020.
