The 2021 Kia Seltos manages to do two opposites at the same time. On one hand, it conforms to expectations by taking on the normal shape and appearance of a smaller crossover. On the other hand, it provides new, innovative technology that most drivers aren’t going to expect to find. The Kia Seltos is a big surprise in a small package, but it’s certainly a welcome one.
Compared to other subcompact crossover SUVs, the Seltos has a better sense of style and is one of the few with two-tone paint jobs. It has plenty of interior space, more than some of the competition, making it great for big grocery trips or young families with a lot to take on long trips. The second row of seats even reclines for improved comfort most of the competitors cannot match.
