The Kia Seltos is a fun to drive compact SUV. I got a chance to spend a week with the SX Turbo all-wheel-drive model. I really had a great time driving in the Washington Metropolitan Area.
It has a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 195 lb-ft of torque along with 175 horsepower. It has a seven-speed automatic and a torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system. Safety features include; forward collision assistance, blind-spot collision warning, lane keep assist, and rear cross-traffic detection. It’s also quite fuel-efficient. you get an EPA rated 30 miles per gallon on the highway. I love the wireless charging inside.
The 10.25-inch touchscreen navigation system was easy to use. I loved the calm sea waves sound that came with it. Driving on I-200 listening to the sounds of the sea was therapeutic for my mental wellbeing.
The sound comes via an excellent Bose premium sound system.
base price on the Seltos is $27,890 for the SX turbo all-wheel-drive model. The delivered price on the model I drove is $29,485. This is an exciting vehicle and I’ll tell anybody in the market for a compact SUV to put this on your list. For more information visit www.kia.com
