Arriving early 2020, Kia’s latest and greatest SUV is the 2021 Kia Seltos which promises to offer Kia’s signature value, reliability and technology-filled experience to drivers seeking the agility and ease of parking that a smaller model provides. The Kia Seltos fits in between the daring Kia Soul and personality-filled Kia Sportage, offering the best of both models with available all-wheel drive and locking. It’s a vehicle that doesn’t shutter at any challenge and aims to show off how a single vehicle can be both a perfect daily driver and weekend conquistador.
Comparing the Kia Seltos trims, we’re able to see just how much value Kia has injected into the Kia Seltos at every trim level. It’s a model that, despite its size, could be considered a halo entry in the Kia SUV lineup. Let’s see how the trim levels compare:

2021 Kia Seltos S
2021 Kia Seltos EX
2021 Kia Seltos SX

We’re expecting the Kia Seltos to be a huge hit. When you look at how the trim levels breakdown, is that really a big surprise? After all, the Kia Seltos promises incredible technology and high-value transportation with standard features like Apple CarPlay, all-wheel drive, and Kia’s hyper-efficient IVT even in the base model.
While we haven’t seen pricing for the Kia Seltos yet, you can bet that it’s going to be a strong contender in the growing subcompact SUV space, letting drivers enjoy go-anywhere transportation with an available turbocharged engine and plenty of great comfort and convenience technology throughout the cabin.
