Exterior Features

The 2021 Kia Seltos is redefining what you may think of a subcompact SUV. With its athletic design and features, it was built to impress. It gives you 7.2 inches of ground clearance to help you tackle almost any road or trail. Kia's signature Tiger-Nose grille and chrome-trimmed dual-exhaust outlets are the shining beacon of style that announces you have arrived in this all-new crossover. While most crossovers in its class may show off a boxy appearance, the Seltos separates itself with a high swooping roofline.

As you would hope from a completely new SUV, the cabin of the Kia Seltos is a fresh take on what you would typically find in a subcompact crossover. Five people will ride in supreme comfort in its large supportive seats. Plush materials decorate the cabin. Kia's Sound Mood Lighting System provides a warm and inviting environment for anyone who climbs in your Kia Seltos. A unique 2-step floor design allows more cabin room with its ability to be lowered. With 26.6 cubic feet of cargo behind the rear seat, you can fit just about anything in the generous cargo space.



The class-leading 10.25-inch LCD touch-screen display is available with the Seltos and features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It provides the perfect canvas for your Apple and Android device to sync to as you gain instant access to your favorite apps, playlists, and navigation. The touchscreen sits high on the dash to give you a great view of the menu. HD and satellite radio ensure you stay entertained on those long road trips. 

There's also the available Bose Premium Sound System that has eight powerful speakers, dynamic speed compression, and a digital amplifier for remarkable sound quality. The Seltos is equipped with an available wireless phone charger that takes the hassle out of charging your mobile device as you drive around Montpelier or commute to Burlington, VT.



Admittedly, a subcompact SUV isn't going to be the first choice of a driver who craves optimal power for rock climbing or driving through any mud puddles they can find. But even those drivers will be impressed with the two bold powertrain options of the Kia Seltos. The starting engine comes in the form of a 146-horsepower four-cylinder powertrain. The continuously variable automatic transmission lets you seamlessly shift through your commute with confidence. If power is your thing, the turbocharged four-cylinder churns out a robust 175 horsepower as you accept the challenges of the open road. You'll love the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission on this one. You also get your pick from the standard front-wheel or all-wheel drive with Lock Mode. Three selectable driving modes make each trip a unique experience.



This SUV enhances safety as you drive around Randolph, VT and Bethel, VT with multiple driver-assist features.

  • Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist-Rear can help you avoid lane-change collisions by monitoring for vehicles in your blind spots.
  • Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Departure Warning are standard features that can help you stay in your lane.
  • With available Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, you're warned of potential collisions, and this feature can apply the automatic brakes during certain circumstances.
  • Available Safe Exit Assist will warn passengers if a vehicle is approaching from behind when they're trying to exit the SUV.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance alerts you with visual and audible warnings if vehicles are crossing into your path when you're backing up.
