Kia has long been known for producing some of the world’s best SUV options, and with the 2021 line, it added a new make to the fold with the 2021 Kia Seltos. If you’re in the market for a new SUV, the professionals at Huffines Kia Corinth are excited to share the new Seltos with you. We think it just might be the SUV you’re looking for. Here are seven of the best reasons to consider taking the new 2021 Kia Seltos for a test drive.
It’s Just the Right Size
Anytime you are designing an SUV one of the most important trade-offs to consider comes with the size of the vehicle. Larger SUVs have more carrying capacity, but they also often come with lower fuel efficiency and compromised maneuverability, while smaller SUVs have the advantage in those categories while sacrificing interior space.
With the Seltos, Kia has really hit the sweet spot, offering ample interior space to handle a packed load while remaining nimble and efficient at the same time. If you need a car that can handle being your everyday car during the week and your off-roading vehicle of choice on the weekend, the Seltos is the way to go.
A Powerful Engine for All Occasions
When you buy an SUV like the 2021 Kia Seltos, there’s a chance you’re thinking about using it both on the highway and off of roads altogether. The good news is, no matter where you are looking to take your Seltos, it has an engine that is up for the task and ready to provide all the torque you need. With 146 horsepower, it has plenty of drive on the open road, plus the strength to navigate over rough or rocky terrains with ease.
All-Wheel Drive Provides Maximum Grip
While the 2021 Kia Seltos is built to ride smooth and look great on the road, it really gets to flex its muscles when you take it off the beaten track and tackle some off-roading. The Seltos uses an all-wheel-drive system featuring independent multilink rear suspension, a locking centering differential, and hill descent assistance.
This system combines to give you maximum control over your Seltos even when the conditions you’re covering are less than optimal. If you’re in the market for an SUV that’s capable of heading off-road for your next adventure, then the 2021 Kia Seltos is ready to deliver.
Precision Handling Feels Like a Smaller Car
While a Seltos may show its true potential when the road gets rough, that doesn’t mean it can’t dazzle you under friendlier conditions as well. Although tight handling and smooth control might not be the first thing you think of when considering an SUV, prepare to be amazed when you take the Seltos out for a test drive. While offering the larger size you need, the Seltos also provides the effortless handling of a smaller vehicle, making every drive more enjoyable.
A Stunning Silhouette to Catch the Eye
The way a car or SUV handles and operates may be the most important consideration, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only consideration. A safe and comfortable car is great, but a safe and comfortable car that looks incredible is even better, and the 2021 Kia Seltos undeniably looks incredible.
You are sure to turn heads anywhere you drive when you pull up in your new Seltos. The look of the Seltos, just like the feel behind the wheel, is a delicate blend of elegance and rugged toughness to create a unique but attractive style that fits in with its Kia SUV siblings while still carving out its own territory.
Edition Customization to Fit Your Needs
The Seltos is making its debut in 2021, and it’s doing so in style with five different trims to choose from, so you can choose the priorities that fit your needs. With the S model, for example, you get a Seltos that focuses on making you and your passengers as safe as possible. The front-wheel-drive option includes additional safety technology for maximum protection every time you pull out of the driveway.
If you’re looking to go on an adventure with your 2021 Kia Seltos, the Seltos LX is the way to go. The all-wheel drive of the LX helps you manage the roughest terrains without problems and opens up a whole new world of exploration.
