Kia Wins Again: Kelley Blue Book Best Buy
Fresh off the heels of winning multiple Best Buy Awards from Consumer Guide, Kia has done it again. This time around Kelley Blue Book has awarded the all-new Kia Seltos and fan favourite Telluride. The Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards are highly regarded among consumers and the industry and we’re incredibly honoured to be included again,” said Sean Yoon, President & CEO, Kia Motors America, Kia Motors North America.
“We’re proud the experts at KBB.com have taken notice the Telluride isn’t just a one-hit-wonder for the Kia brand – its award-winning formula is being infused into our newer models and the Seltos is proof positive that it’s translating well across the lineup.”
Let's look at how the Telluride and Seltos outclassed the competition.
Return of the King
Since its debut last year, the Kia Telluride has thoroughly dominated the mid-size/three-row SUV segment. While most new vehicle models take years to work out any flaws, it has risen astonishingly in popularity amongst vehicle reviewers and everyday drivers alike. Awarded back to back years, the Telluride received once again the KBBBB Award for the three-row SUV segment.
But what made the 2021 Telluride model worthy of the Best Buy Award? Kia didn’t mess with success and made some small changes and additions from the 2020 model. This includes an all-new Nightfall trim level that includes a dark appearance pack with black rims and dark trim finish. The next level Calligraphy Edition offers an incredibly luxurious experience for all passengers compared. Finished with premium Nappa leather, 20-inch wheels, and Kia's safety and convenience tech at the touch of your fingertips.
Besides new trim additions, the Telluride is also praised for its incredible value across all trim levels. Starting as low as $46,195 the Telluride is one of the more affordable options in the three-row SUV segment.
New Kid on the Block
Following the Telluride, the brand new Seltos quickly asserted itself as the best SUV in its segment. Not only did it receive 2021 KBB Best New Model, but also the Best 2021 Subcompact SUV in its class. Its size fits in between the Soul and Sportage on the increasingly diverse Kia SUV lineup. Best known for its front end styling, best in class cargo capacity, and standout value, the Seltos is well equipped at any trim level.
Starting at $22,995, all trim levels come with standard AWD. On top of the incredible feature list and low price, the Seltos much like all other Kia vehicles benefits from an industry best 5 years/100,000 km comprehensive warranty that gives you complete peace of mind that your vehicle will be taken care of.
