What Makes the Kia Seltos Different From Other Kia SUVs?

Thursday, December 12th, 2019


Now that the Kia Seltos will be undoubtedly coming to America in the next few years, most likely for the 2021 model year, many consumers are beginning to wonder about the differences between this crossover and the already growing selection of hatchbacks, crossovers, and SUVs in the Kia Motors lineup. Some have been quick to point out many similarities between the Kia Seltos and the Kia Sportage SUV, leading some to wonder if we really need another crossover. Don’t be fooled – the Kia Seltos is not only muscular and rugged, but it’s the kind of crossover consumers will want to drive around the city. Let us point out some of the differences that set the Kia Seltos a part from its close-resembling sibling, the Kia Sportage.

Looks Elegant Outside and Roomy Inside

Kia Motors has already slotted the Kia Seltos below the Kia Sportage in terms of size, hence it being a crossover and not an SUV. Even so, with the smaller frame of the Seltos, the crossover takes on a boxy look similar to that of the large SUV, the 2020 Kia Telluride. This gives the crossover a more muscular look that could easily land it a spot in the subcompact SUV class. Keeping up with the differences to set itself apart, the Kia Seltos will be available with cool two-tone exterior color schemes with either a black or white roof.

Big things come in small packages, or that’s what they say. Well, the saying is true for the Kia Seltos. Even with its compact size, with the rear seats folded down, consumers get 62.8 cubic-feet to work with. That’s more than you’ll find in the Kia Sportage. The Seltos even has a little more head and legroom in the front and rear of the cabin.
