Extra standard safety technology features on the EX include Blind-Spot Detection, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert & Avoidance.

The 2021 Seltos offers two turbocharged models—the Seltos S Turbo and Seltos SX Turbo. They feature a 1.6L 4-cylinder Turbo engine with Intelligent Variable Transmission, and a 1.6L 4-cylinder Turbo with 7-Speed Quick-Shift DCT automatic transmission respectively.

Both come with All-Wheel Drive and both produce 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The Seltos S Turbo has all of the tech and safety technology of the Seltos EX, and the SX Turbo goes all out with an upgraded 10.25-inch color touch-screen with navigation and UVO link, Bose® Premium Audio w/ Sound Connected Mood Lamp, and Safe Exit Assist.

Safety First in Your Seltos

If safety is important to you, the Kia Seltos delivers with a long line-up of Driver Assist Technology starting with the Auto Emergency Braking, Lane Keeping, Lane Departure Warning, and Driver Attention Warning features standard in all but the Seltos LX base trim.

Standard and available features in the higher Seltos models include Blind-Spot Detection, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assistance, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert & Avoidance, Auto Emergency Braking, and Safe Exit Assist.

Eyes on the Road Safe Exit Assist

Safe Exit Assist (SEA) is the latest in Kia safety technology that keeps you protected even when your Seltos isn’t moving. SEA prevents a passenger from exiting a rear seat without checking for an approaching vehicle, bicyclist, or other hazards. The system automatically scans for hazards and prevents a rear door from opening if one is detected.

Is the 2020 Kia Seltos Fun to Drive?

Thanks to world-class engineering, the new Kia Seltos offers one of the most riveting rides in its class.

When equipped with its available 201-horsepower 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, this compact car produces a compelling kick. Car buyers can choose between a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifters or a 6-speed manual transmission, both of which provide smooth acceleration and optimal control. To inspire even more thrills, the 2020 Seltos also offers an available High Flow Active Exhaust, a multi-link rear suspension, and more.

For those searching for more balanced performance, the compact car’s standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine provides a lively ride while maintaining impressive fuel economy. When equipped with its Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT), it can achieve an EPA-estimated 41 MPG on the highway. Motorists can also use an available Drive Mode Select system to adjust the 2020 Seltos’s performance in accordance with changing driving conditions.

The Comfortable and Connected Seltos Interior

Don’t be fooled by the rugged good looks of the Seltos’ exterior. Inside this small SUV is a spacious interior with more passenger volume than the 2020 Toyota RAV4, 62.8 cu ft of cargo space behind the first row, standard reclining second-row seating, and a rear USB port and AC vents.

You can also opt for the personal convenience of available features like Heated Front Seats (with AWD models), a Power Driver’s Seat, Automatic Temperature Control, and a Wireless Phone Charger.

Technology That Does More

The LX, S, EX, and S Turbo trims come with a standard 8-inch touch-screen display with Rear Camera and Dynamic Parking Guidance. The available Class-Leading 10.25-inch color LCD touch screen includes navigation features and comes standard on the Seltos SX Turbo. All Seltos models are equipped with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto integration.

Other available interior technology features include Bose Premium audio with 8 high-performance speakers, a digital amplifier, and mood lighting. You can also keep your devices charged with the available cord-free wireless phone charger (standard in the SX Turbo).

Kia Connectivity—Always There For You

Four available UVO link services allow you to remotely connect to your Seltos through the Kia Access with UVO link app. You can choose the ease of Remote Features—that lets you warm up or cool down your car, lock or unlock your doors remotely, or get directions to your vehicle. Next-Gen Connected Notifications—alerts you to things like battery status, headlight and taillight status, and more.
