The subcompact and small SUV segments are growing astronomically due to the class’s focus on daily driving serviceability and weekend warrior dynamics. Vehicles in this class enjoy excellent fuel-efficiency ratings, a comfortable interior and plenty of cargo space for those days you can escape the city’s confines.
Slated to be one of the most exciting models in this class, the upcoming 2021 Kia Seltos is already looking like it could be the best model in the class. To claim this crown, however, it’s going to have to beat existing class models like the 2020 Jeep Renegade, against which it squares up today. Let’s see how these small wonders do.

Arriving this spring, the 2021 Kia Seltos is already taking names. Up against one of the most popular models in the segment, the 2021 Kia Seltos reveals its prowess for balancing capability and fun.
With the 2021 Kia Seltos, drivers get standard all-wheel drive, a competent base engine, huge infotainment system with standard Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capability and a cavernous interior that doesn’t sweat extra passengers or gear like the 2020 Jeep Renegade is liable to.
At Friendly Kia, we’re anticipating a huge year for the Kia Seltos. We expect it to rival the incredible year that the 2020 Kia Telluride had in 2019 and can’t wait to see this dynamic small SUV in person when it makes the auto show circuits next month.
Part of the reason we’re so excited to stock the Kia Seltos is because it’s a vehicle that we know will have a concrete improvement for the lives and commutes of our friends, family and neighbors here in Tampa Bay.
