Through our onsite platform, you can discover the value of your vehicle in seconds, regardless if you want to trade your car in or sell it outright.

At Allentown Kia, we also understand what kind of wear and tear the road can impose. Even though you can expect long term reliability from our vehicles, we understand that having peace of mind while on the road can be extremely beneficial.

2021 New Kia Seltos Overview

 

The future of the auto industry seems to be favoring compact crossovers, and the upcoming 2021 Kia Seltos is here for the party. This versatile, practical vehicle is fun to drive and has the coolest new features. Great on gas with spacious available seating for five people, you can’t go wrong with this new Kia. Available in five trims and with two powertrains, you can find the perfect match to suit your personality and driving style. You can choose from the following trims: LX, S, S Turbo, EX, and SX. Each one has its own set of unique features that range from infotainment to safety and everything in-between. The Seltos has many configurations and options so that drivers can find one that suits their individual needs.

 

Everything You Want to Know About the New Kia

 

As the latest addition to the Kia line-up, the 2021 Kia Seltos starts at an MSRP of $21,990. As the younger sibling to the popular Kia Sportage, the Seltos is smaller and more compact and comparable to vehicles like the Chevy Trax and Subaru Crosstrek. This new vehicle is filling a spot in the Kia line-up that no one even knew was there, and it is filling the spot well.

With two fuel-efficient powertrains to choose from, you will be more than satisfied with the overall performance of the Seltos. The standard 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine generates 146 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and FWD, it has a fuel economy set at 29 MPG combined (27 city/31 highway). You can also get this powertrain with AWD on any trim except the base.

If you want a bit more power, you can opt for the second powertrain. This turbocharged 1.6-liter 4-cylinder motor makes 175 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. Mated with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and AWD, this powertrain gets 27 MPG combined (25 city/31 highway). It can also tow up to 3,300 pounds, which is unheard of for a compact crossover. As earlier mentioned, the Seltos is an undeniably fantastic addition to the Kia selection.

 

Top 12 Features on the 2021 Kia Seltos

 

With so many fantastic features and unique characteristics of the new Kia, we thought it might be useful to give you a list of those most notable. So without further ado, let's take a look at the best features of the 2021 Kia Seltos.

#1 - The Infotainment System

Every trim for the 2021 Kia Seltos is equipped with an advanced infotainment system; even the base model comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen monitor that displays the video feed from the rearview camera along with all the entertainment functions of the system. It works with Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling and text messaging. It also operates with a 6-speaker sound system, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. This means that you can stream your personal playlist and use your favorite apps without touching your smartphone.

This infotainment system even gets an upgrade on the top-tier SX trim. Not only is the screen enlarged to a 10.25-inch monitor, but it also gets a navigation system and an upgraded Bose stereo.

#2 - Hill Start Assist

Back in the day, the worst possible place to park your vehicle was on a hill. Manual transmissions made it hard to get the vehicle going while on a vertical incline, and even the first automatic transmission vehicles could cause a mini-panic attack whenever they had to be started on a hill. This isn’t the case with the 2021 Kia Seltos. All trims come with hill start assist, which makes it easier to get moving from a parked position on a steep incline.

#3 - Electronic Stability and Traction Control

Offering a smooth driving experience everywhere you go, the upcoming Seltos is equipped with electronic stability and traction control. These systems help to reduce vibrations and slippage while traveling through challenging road conditions. You can take on that sharp turn will grace and elegance.

#4 - Rear Privacy Glass

Another great standard feature that comes equipped on all 2021 Seltos trims is rear privacy glass. This tinted back window serves two main functions. First, it prevents passersby from peeking inside the back of your vehicle. Second, it can also help keep the cabin cooler.

#5 - Lane-Keeping Features

Starting at the second trim, the S, the Seltos gets some advanced safety features. Two of these systems focus on staying in your designated lane and changing lanes safely. These are known as lane-keeping assist and lane-departure warning. Lane-keeping assist will automatically steer the Seltos back into its designated lane if the vehicle begins to drift off to the side. Meanwhile, the lane-departure warning system will alert you with an audible chime when the vehicle starts to drift out of its lane. The two systems work in unison to help prevent accidents on the road.

#6 - Automatic High Beams and Lighting

On some trims, automatic high beams provide optimal visibility at night and during inclement weather. You won’t have to worry about oncoming traffic. The automatic high beam system will dim the lights when an approaching vehicle is sensed. Fog lights are also included in the S trim, and they get an upgrade to LED bulbs at the SX trim. The enhanced visibility these features provide allows for safer driving at any time of the day or night.

#7 - Blind-Spot Monitoring

One of the biggest culprits in automobile accidents is the dreaded blind-spot. Luckily, the Seltos S Turbo, EX, and SX models all come with blind-spot monitoring to help prevent accidents due to disappearing cars. Using a series of sensors, the system will detect when another vehicle enters your blind-spot. Visual and audible alerts will notify you to be aware of the present vehicles.

#8 - Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

Paired with the blind-spot monitoring system is rear cross-traffic alert. This innovative system will alert you if another vehicle is crossing your path from behind. Useful during reverse, it helps you avoid potential collisions.

#9 - Premium Seating

On the top-tier EX and SX models, the heated seats are wrapped in premium leather upholstery. Keeping you warm and cozy during the winter months, heated leather seats are a luxury that a lot of people want in a new vehicle.

#10 - Wireless Charging

Although the 2021 Seltos has USB ports for hooking up your charging cable, the EX and SX models are also equipped with a wireless charging pad. This helps to prevent clutter inside the cabin, leaving you with a more organized interior and a fully charged smartphone.

#11 - Sunroof

Standard on the EX trim and optional on the SX trim, the sunroof is an excellent addition to the Seltos. Allowing you to let in some natural light or some fresh air, you can bring the outdoors inside with this wonderful feature.

#12 - Adaptive Cruise Control

Finally, on the top-of-the-line SX trim, the adaptive cruise control feature is a great one to wrap things up with. Not only does this system allow you to set your desired speed, but it also allows you to set the desired distance between your Seltos and the vehicle directly in front of you. This nifty safety feature can help you avoid rear-ending someone.

You will pass right by Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom to get to our showroom. Even if you’re coming from the big city of Philadelphia, getting here is quite straightforward.
