If you're looking for a vehicle with added utility but don't want something too big, check out the 2021 Kia Seltos. The newest model in Kia's extensive fleet, the Seltos is a subcompact crossover with bold style, comfortable accommodations, and lots of advanced technology. It's an excellent option for drivers seeking the versatility of a crossover with a practical, easy to maneuver physical footprint.


Sleek and sporty, the Seltos boasts a sharp and athletic aesthetic, with clean lines, muscular sculpting, and a broad-shouldered stance. A large grille, dynamic headlight cluster, and available LED fog lamps highlight the assertively styled front fascia.

The Seltos' subcompact dimensions allow it to easily navigate crowded streets and tight parking spaces. Even still, the interior is plenty roomy, with comfortable seating for five passengers and 26.6 cubic feet remaining for cargo. For larger errand-runs, the 60/40-split rear seats fold down to expand the available cargo capacity to 63 cubic feet.


Under the hood, the Kia Seltos offers a choice of powertrains. The base 2.0-liter engine pairs with a continuously variable automatic transmission and produces 146 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. Drivers seeking a little extra zip will appreciate the available turbocharged 1.6-liter engine. Paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, it generates 175 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel-drive is available on the S trim and standard on all other trims.
