New Kia Michigan Review – 2021 Kia Seltos for Sale in Southfield near Detroit Michigan
Michigan Review – 2021 Kia Seltos
After selling the 2020 model on the global market, Kia will be introducing the 2021 Kia Seltos in the North American market early in 2020. The Seltos is classified as a subcompact SUV crossover, but it is roomier than most vehicles in this category. This touches on two of the three reasons that it is a family-friendly car. As a subcompact, it is budget friendly because it is more affordable and because it is more economical to operate. Yet, the roominess allows it to comfortably hold five passengers. In addition, it not only provides plenty of passenger space, but it also offers plenty of cargo space. Because of the snowy winters, a Michigan Review of the new Kia Seltos has to mention the all-wheel-drive with lock feature.
Exterior – 2021 Kia Seltos
The 2021 Seltos will be available in a two-tone version and in four trims — the LX, S, EX, and SX. With its angular lines, it has an urban look that is eye-catching on your daily commute and as you run errands. However, the sporty, rugged look allows it to compete on the open road. The exterior design makes the Seltos look larger. However, as a subcompact with an aerodynamic exterior, it has a 0.33 drag coefficient.
Interior – 2021 Kia Seltos in Southfield MI
Starting with the extra space, Kia has designed the interior of the Seltos to be a class-leader. The upholstery and the other interior materials provide a refined, upscale look. Attention has been paid to the details that make the interior comfortable, such as the reclining second-row seats. With the SX trim, Kia offers ambient lighting and adds a pulse feature that matches the beat of your music. With 26.6 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats, the cargo area also provides ample space. The two-step cargo floor can be lowered for easier loading. If more cargo space is needed, the 60/40-split second-row seats can be folded down to create 62.8 cubic feet of cargo space. The standard and optional technology features complete the interior of the Kia Seltos. A touchscreen infotainment display, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto are standard features for the Seltos.
