Novi MI - 2021 Kia Seltos's Overview

Powertrain – 2021 Kia Seltos

To deliver a dominating, smooth drive, even a compact SUV needs more than a typical sedan. The 155 horsepower Trailblazer engine was not as impressive to potential new customers, at just 155 horsepower. Compare that to the Seltos’s turbocharged 1.6L engine rated at 175 horsepower, with all-wheel drive standard. These are both maxed out engines here, with both also having a base model. Your Seltos comes with its budget base model as a 2.0L 4-cylinder good for 146 horsepower. The Seltos wins in a knockout in this two engine competition. If you want the stronger drive and better handling on the road, the AWD Seltos is your ticket to greatness.

Interior – 2021 Kia Seltos near Novi MI

The 2021 Kia Seltos features reclining rear seats, a dual level cargo floor, and privacy glass even on the base model. Kia is also serving Novi Detroit Southfield Troy Michigan with advanced features like an 8-inch touchscreen display with rear camera, power sunroof, and even a wireless phone charger, all with the potential for luxury features like Sofino seat trim and heated front seats. Your 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer offers a few of these things, but you won’t find reclining rear seats, and you’ll also notice less cargo capacity and innovative storage solutions than the Seltos. Your Seltos is rocking 62.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity with the seats folded, while the Trailblazer offers just 54.4 cubic feet of cargo space. The Trailblazer’s 7-inch touchscreen also falls short, compared to the Seltos.

Mechanical – Seltos specs near Novi

We’ve already mentioned that the Trailblazer doesn’t come with standard all-wheel drive. The Seltos, on the other hand, sports a 7-speed Quick-Shift DCT automatic transmission that we’d rank as one of the top in its class this year. It provides a commanding presence to your shifts and allows you to really utilize your power with few worries. Torque vectoring corner control is another amazing feature on higher trims of the Seltos. And with three exciting drive modes to choose from – Normal, Eco, or Sport – you’ll find higher trims of Seltos are just plain more fun to drive than the bland Trailblazer.

Winner – Kia Seltos near Novi MI

The Seltos comes in your choice of LX, S, EX, SX, and SX Turbo trims, and we assure you that any one of these trims is going to outpace the Trailblazer this year. This year’s Seltos is the king of the mountain, with a stunning new look that includes 18-inch machined alloy wheels, LED headlights and fog lights, and an energetic grille with integrated LED light bar (you really have to see this feature to believe it). There’s just something tech savvy, suave, and classy about a new Seltos, and we know our customers won’t want to miss out on owning one this year. So don’t! This reasonably priced and sporty compact SUV will make both you and your wallet happy.
