Ever since we learned that the Kia Seltos crossover will be coming to America after its initial success in India and Australia, good news about the 2021 Kia Seltos has been pouring in, like the 5-star safety rating the Kia Seltos received from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) (testing the Australian-spec model, of course). Kia Motors has been highlighting the Seltos, making use of its Super Bowl spot to bring attention to youth homelessness, and just before released an advertisement highlighting their “Yards Against Homelessness” Initiative. Now that we know more about the U.S. specs and what the 2021 Kia Seltos will have to offer, let’s talk about options for the best this crossover can deliver.

Starting off, what we know about the U.S. Kia Seltos is that this model will come in five trim levels with two engine options and the choice of a front- or all-wheel drivetrain. Not bad for its first introduction to American shores, and with a starting MSRP of $21,990 (plus destination fee), consumers get a more than mild set up. The base model comes with the initial 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine as the standard setup, able to generate 146 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque, equipped with an 8.0-inch touchscreen with some form of UVO that powers Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto compatibility, front-wheel drive, and outfitted with 18-inch wheels.

Kia Motors Announces “Yards Against Homelessness” Initiative

For the last few years, Kia Motors has been finding more and more ways to connect with the youth and the younger generation. The automaker’s hatchback, the Kia Soul, was a step in the right direction, followed by the Kia Stinger sports car. As the Kia Motors style and lineup continues to change with the likes of the 2020 Kia Telluride and the 2021 Kia Seltos, Kia Motors needs to continue to connect with the demographic that is starting to dominate the auto market. Last year, Kia Motors used its fame and finances to put together the “Great Unknowns” Scholarship and advertised it during the 2019 Super Bowl. This year, the automaker is running a new campaign to fight homeless youth in America.

Homelessness in America is a growing problem in many states. Depending on the area and the city, some have more of a homeless populace than others, but either way, there’s a clear problem. In 2019 alone, more than 4.2 million young people were reported to be experiencing homelessness in the U.S. Charities and foundations have been founded and organized, but they could always use more help. Kia Motors is continuing to give back to the youth in the community by offering financial aid to such charities.
