Kia has been producing high-end sport utility vehicles for years and they have been highly successful. With that, Kia thought they should add an option that’s geared more toward the younger crowd. We have met the Seltos and we love it. In case you’re wondering, here are five reasons the Kia Seltos is perfect for young drivers.
It Has Serious Exterior Appeal
With a range of bright colors and great features, the exterior of the 2021 Kia Seltos is sure to bring in the younger crowd. You can choose from colors such as Neptune Blue, Mars Orange, and Starbright Yellow. Exterior features such as the upgraded grille and integrated LED light bar and roof rails on the S trim level amplify this SUV’s sporty look. The SX Turbo comes with both an available sunroof as well as a two-tone roof so you can choose how you want it to look. Even the base model LX comes with features like metal-look skid plates on the front and back, a rear spoiler, and sleek black front grille.
Stay Safe with Technology Assisted Safety Features
The Seltos is also equipped with some truly impressive safety features. It has the Kia Drive Wise system with driver assistance technology such as blind-spot collision avoidance assist-rear, forward collision-avoidance assist, and lane-keeping assist. You also get rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance and safe exit assistance. You can drive confidently knowing that you’re being protected by the best safety options out there.
Take Advantage of the High-End Technology
Young drivers will love all of the high-end technology features found inside the new Seltos. On the LX you find an eight-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth calling and voice recognition. It also offers Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The higher-end SX Turbo comes with a larger 10.25-inch touch screen with the UVO link system. Also included are connectivity features like remote connectivity, voice-command navigation, and a premium Bose sound system. You’ll be able to access your phone’s features such as music, texts, and calls easily while keeping your attention on the road.
Stay Comfortable with an Upscale Interior
All of the trim levels of the Seltos come with luxurious, comfortable interior options. Inside of the S, you find a leather-wrapped steering wheel with combination leatherette and cloth seating. With the EX you get heated front seats with comfortable leather seat trim and automatic temperature control. If you do a lot of traveling the ample cargo space with the standard 60/40 rear split-fold seats will come in handy.
You Get Great Fuel Economy
The 2021 Seltos is available with two different engine options. There’s the standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that gets you up to 147 horsepower and 31 miles per gallon. On the S and SX Turbo, you get a 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbo engine that provides up to 195 horsepower and 30 miles per gallon. Either of these options offers you sufficient power while keeping the fuel economy you desire.
