When you’re on the search for a new ride for your commutes all around the Jenkintown, Rydal, and Glenside, PA, areas, there’s a good chance you’re considering a Kia. After all, they do have a reputation for providing advanced performance, technology, and safety features. One model that can certainly deliver all that and more is the Kia Seltos.

Here at Sussman Kia, we’re dedicated to helping you every step of the way when you’re looking for your next on-road companion, and we know that starts right here with the research process. Check out our 2021 Kia Seltos review below to see if it’s the right choice for you!

2021 Kia Seltos Review Jenkintown PAA Modernly Rugged Design

Before we dive into the various specs and features inside the 2021 Kia Seltos, we first need to take a minute to appreciate the craftsmanship that was put into its exterior design.

This Kia SUV stands firmly on top of 17-inch alloy wheels. Everything from its black front grille to the rear spoiler adds to the overall athletic style of the Seltos. With plenty of colors to choose among, including the two-tone roof option, you can personalize your new Kia SUV even more!

It isn’t just about looks, though, when it comes to the exterior design of the Kia Seltos. The front and rear skid plates help keep everything protected from the elements while available LED lighting gives you outstanding visibility while driving.

2021 Kia Seltos Review Jenkintown PAPerformance Features & Engine Specs

Under the hood of the Kia Seltos, you’ll find the standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, which puts out 146 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque capability. It’s paired with the Intelligent Variable Transmission, which delivers a smooth and easy-to-handle ride.

On top of that, this powertrain also keeps fuel consumption at a minimum. As you drive around in the 2021 Kia Seltos, you’ll get an EPA-estimated 29 city/34 highway MPG, which is on par with some sedans.1

Enjoy even sportier performance in the S Turbo or SX Turbo trim levels, which are powered by the 1.6L in-line 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. This improves the power output of the 2021 Seltos, as it creates 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.

The Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with Lock Mode system is ideal for those snowy and icy winter months, thanks to the electronic sensors that monitor road conditions and then distribute power to the appropriate wheels.

2021 Kia Seltos Review Jenkintown PAInterior Cabin Dimensions

While we mentioned that this is a compact Kia SUV, it doesn’t compromise when it comes to interior cabin space. All five riders are going to have plenty of headroom, shoulder room, hip room, and legroom to stretch out and relax.

Row Headroom (inches) Shoulder Room (inches) Hip Room (inches) Legroom (inches)
Front Row 40 55.5 53.5 41.4
Second Row 38.4 54.7 52.8 38

Along with the space your passengers are provided with, long drives become even more relaxed for your friends in the back thanks to the standard reclining seats.

You’ll also get tons of storage room in the Seltos. Back in the trunk, you’ll find 26.6 cubic feet of cargo room when all the seats are upright, but if you need a bit more, simply fold down the 2nd-row seats to access up to 62.8 cubic feet of cargo volume.

2021 Kia Seltos Review Jenkintown PAEnhanced Comfort

Along with its interior space, what makes the 2021 Seltos an incredibly comfortable ride is all the additional amenities you can add to your Kia SUV. Available heated front seats make morning commutes in the winter much cozier.

You can also get the available 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Move your seat forward, tilt it back, or raise it up with just the push of a button. This also features a 2-way power lumbar support adjustment, which helps take the fatigue out of longer road trips.

With available UVO link services, you can get your Seltos all set up for your commute before you even walk out of the house. It features remote capabilities that will let you get the heat or AC cranking, so the cabin is at a comfortable temperature before you jump in!
