2021 Kia Seltos Trims & Configurations

Detailed information was scare to begin with about the 2021 Kia Seltos SUV configurations, but now we have some answers. We did know we would most likely see the classic 4 Kia trim levels (LX, S, EX, SX) but we weren't exactly sure. The 2021 Kia Seltos actually has a variety of 5 trim options: LX, S, EX, S Turbo, and SX Turbo. We even anticipated that the 2021 Kia Seltos SX Turbo would include AWD with Lock Mode, a 10.25-inch touch-screen display, and an 8-speaker Bose Premium Sound system. 

2021 Kia Seltos Performance Specs

The all-new 2021 Kia Seltos comes with the option between two four-cylinder engines. You can choose a 2.0L engine that pumps out 146 horsepower or the 1.6L turbocharged motor with an output of 175 horsepower instead. The base engine features a continuously variable automatic transmission, while the turbo engine is paired to a seven-speed automatic. You can choose an available Kia AWD powertrain with either engine option. 

2021 Kia Seltos Interior Features

The 2021 Kia Seltos has more space inside than the Hyundai Kona. You can also expect a touchscreen infotainment center, along with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay to come standard. This five-passenger SUV features 26.6 cubic feet of cargo room, with the option to expand to 62.8 cubic feet when the back seat is folded down. The Seltos comes with reclining second-row seats as well. Some of the safety features that will be available include automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, safe exit assist and lane-departure warning. For the interior, you have your choice of 2 different seat trim colors: Black SOFINO or Gray SOFINO.

2021 Kia Seltos MPG

EPA estimates weren't available for a while covering the 2021 Kia Seltos, but we thought to see similar MPG ratings to the Hyundai Kona. This would give the front-wheel-drive Kia Seltos model with a 2.0-liter engine, about 33 mpg on the highway, while the all-wheel-drive Seltos with the turbocharged engine would also produce slightly less numbers with an estimated 30 mpg on the highway. The 2021 Kia Seltos MPG ratings are 27 city/31 highway/29 combined with the base 2.0L and 25 city/30 highway/27 combined with the 1.6L turbo. Even KIA all-wheel drive cars are exceptionally fuel-efficient, and this Seltos model is no different.
