Prayers have been answered, because the latest press release from Kia Motors gives us a full look inside and out on what the 2021 Kia Seltos will bring to the market.
Engineering Done Right
Engineered to satisfy both driver and passengers, multiple elements have been fine-tuned to ensure a rich experience when riding or driving the Kia Seltos. Two engine options will be made available for the 2021 model year, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder MPI engine will come standard on the LX, S and EX trims. Capable of producing 146 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque, this engine is paired with an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT).
