One of the latest additions to the Kia lineup is a sporty-looking little SUV called the Kia Seltos. The 2021 Kia Seltos represents a way for Kia to go after the subcompact crossover market from two angles. Kia already has the boxy, hip Soul in the same class, but the Seltos arrives to deliver a design more like a shrunken Sorento than a rectangle on wheels.
The 2021 Kia Seltos is the first-ever version of the Seltos. Future years will no doubt see changes to adjust feature availability or add or subtract trims. For now, however, the 2021 Kia Seltos is proving its importance to the Kia lineup by bringing great performance, technology, dependability, and more to drivers. For a quick overview of the model’s available features and specifications, see the table below.

Young families should see the 2021 Kia Seltos, even if they don’t think they’re in the market for a car. This small SUV has so many features and so much advanced safety technology, even at its lowest trim, it’s an offering that shouldn’t be passed up. Larger families or families with older children might want a larger SUV, but the Seltos works fantastically as a second vehicle and even as a people carrier for long trips. The eye-catching design is a big plus too, and it might make the difference for some.
