Kia Seltos Earns Spot on Wards 10 Best UX list for 2020


Kia Motors is one automaker that is quick to bounce back after the shutdown from the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the world is still bracing the virus, Kia Motors is doing its best to aid local communities. Its MoceanLab experiment kicked things into high gear, and it’s already proving how effective purpose-built vehicles (PBVs) may be. While Kia Motors and the Hyundai Motor Group continue to expand, organizations and publications are starting to put together their Best Of lists now that we’re well into the second half of the year. The latest accolade for Kia Motors comes from WardsAuto, landing on the Wards 10 Best UX list for 2020.

That “UX” is short for User Experience, and Kia Motors is definitely known for giving its consumers a taste of luxury in a non-luxury brand vehicle. The Kia Stinger was a fine example of this, able to give consumers performance, style, and technology for a fraction of the price. It’s one of the reasons the Kia Stinger won so many awards during its first year of release. Now, a fresh face has come out of the gates, a compact SUV that goes by the name of the Kia Seltos. This is a compact SUV with so much to love.

With style, safety, and technology, there are so many highlights of the Kia Seltos that make it a great vehicle. Autotrader doesn’t just put any compact SUV on its “10 Best Cars for Recent College Graduates 2020” List, but the 2020 Kia Seltos is definitely on it. So, what does WardsAuto have to say about it?

“The Wards 10 Best UX judging panel really enjoyed seat time in the 2021 Kia Seltos, a first-year vehicle whose designers and developers mixed up a spot-on formula right out of the box…Seltos is an affordable, compact CUV with a funky vibe including mood lighting that pulses along with the music. The impressive infotainment system hands down ranks among the industry’s best, and the driver-assistance technologies perform well.” – said Dave Zoia, executive director of content, Wards Intelligence

Going on its fifth year, the Wards 10 Best UX competition places a large focus on the interior of the vehicle and what the cabin offers its consumers – primarily the driver and the center console, but features for front and rear passengers are always a plus. Paying close attention to how the driver interacts with the vehicle and how “user-friendly” the controls are, WardsAuto highlights many of the tech options available on the Kia Seltos. These include an available 10.25-in. high-resolution touchscreen that offers satellite radio, a UVO telematics system, navigation capability, and a split-screen display that sits high on the instrument panel for excellent accessibility. For those a little more tech-savvy, the Kia Seltos also offers multi-Bluetooth device connectivity, wireless smartphone charging, can come with up to three USB ports, and offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The 2020 Kia Seltos is the perfect compact SUV for driving around town or for long trips on the weekend. With Kia Motors increasing the personalization and customization of its vehicle lineup, you can make the Kia Seltos yours. Find out how at Miami Lakes Automall.
