2021 Kia Seltos Makes Canadian Debut In Montreal


Kia has unveiled its 2021 Kia Seltos at the Montreal Auto Show.

The all-new Seltos is being placed squarely in the entry-SUV segment with modern styling, an abundance of safety features and generous cargo space.

Complementing Kia’s SUV line-up, the Seltos slots between the popular Soul and Sportage models, providing a premium and tech-savvy cabin, a choice of two well-tested engines and an available all-wheel drive system.

The Kia Seltos comes equipped with a range of passive and active safety technology such as standard Blind Spot Detection Warning system and a Rear-Cross Traffic Alert , along with a rear-view Camera to alleviate rear blind spots to make parking much safer. The available Smart Cruise Control system adapts to the speed of traffic by sensing the distance and speed of the vehicle in front. This feature helps to maintain safety in unpredictable highway driving conditions.

The Seltos comes with Bluetooth, Android Auto and Apple Carplay connectivity. Available technologies, such as the 10.25-inch multimedia interface with UVO Intelligence telematics, the 8-speaker Bose premium sound system, and the available Heads-Up Display, standard Heated Front and available heated Rear Seats, and Air-Cooled Front Seats.

Similar to the Telluride’s design theme, the Seltos is a marriage of bold design and delicate details, and stands apart from rivals with its strong, upright stance. The tall front end and up to 7.2-inch ground clearance translate to a tough attitude and an adventurous spirit. Its assertive presence is spearheaded by Kia’s signature tiger nose grille that includes unexpected diamond-like detail. Chiseled surfaces and well-drawn lines lead back to a distinctive profile.

In terms of comfort and space, the Seltos is actually one of the larger vehicles in the Entry SUV segment. The overall length of 4,370 mm, height of 1,615 mm, and a 2,630 mm wheelbase help to generate one of the best interior packages in its niche. First-row headroom of 1,017 mm, second-row legroom of 965 mm, and 752 L of cargo space behind the second row, are all very impressive and sure to come in handy on weekend getaways.
