What About Gas Mileage?
Well, first and foremost it is a Kia, so expect some of the best-in-class gas mileage. We only have the US numbers so far but they are impressive? Check them out for yourself.
2021 Kia Seltos EPA-Estimated MPG Figures: With its base configuration of a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine, IVT and AWD powertrain, the 2021 Kia Seltos will see an EPA-estimated 31 highway MPG/27 city MPG/29 combined MPG.
The FWD variant (an option on the 2021 Kia Seltos S) does predictably better than the standard drivetrain with 34 highway MPG/29 city MPG/31 combined MPG – a difference we think many drivers may see as negligible in favor of the enhanced traction and all-weather capability provided by all-wheel drive.
Finally, if you opt for the 175-horsepower turbocharged variant of the 2021 Kia Seltos S or 2021 Kia Seltos SX, you’ll find fuel economy to be 30 highway MPG/25 city MPG/27 combined MPG thanks to the efficient 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and AWD.
These numbers paint an important picture of the Seltos’s ability to deliver industry-leading technology, comfort and style without pulling you to every off-ramp on a long drive. It proves that Kia understands what drivers in this segment want and are willing to deliver it with some surprising flair.
