If You're Considering a New Kia Seltos in Pomona, Here are Five More Reasons to Schedule Your Test Drive Today!

The 2021 Kia Seltos has made one of the bigger splashes when it comes to brand-new SUVs, and for good reason. It comes well-equipped with two unique engine choices, it comes with a toughness that its closest competition lacks, and tech, comfort, and style are all top-notch for the compact SUV category. But at the end of the day, what makes the 2021 Kia Seltos truly stand out from the competition? Pomona Kia has highlighted five of the lesser-discussed features and characteristics that make the new Kia Seltos a must-drive SUV for shoppers in the Chino Hills and Montclair areas.

  • 1. Tackle Your Off-Road Adventures with Confidence

    While other small crossovers will balk at anything resembling a true off-road adventure, the 2021 Kia Seltos stands tall and says 'bring it on'. And standing tall isn't just a figure of speech; 7.3 inches of ground clearance put this compact SUV on par with mid- and full-size models, giving you the freedom to clear those larger obstacles with ease. Even better, with approach and departure angles of 28 degrees, steep grades and uneven terrain are no longer a worry. The Kia Seltos is uniquely positioned to make your daily drives a breeze, and then transition seamlessly into your weekend romp across rocky creek beds and up mountain trails without missing a beat.

  • 2. Stretch Your Fuel Budget

    Speaking of tacking your daily drives, the 2021 Kia Seltos also gives you a pair of engine options that allow you to choose between some extra gusto and a fuel-sipping cruise. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that comes standard will give you an impressive 34 mpg highway with two-wheel drive models, while those with all-wheel drive setups will still achieve up to 32 mpg on your highway runs. Both figures are impressive for a compact SUV like the Seltos, and that's something your wallet will appreciate at th end of the work week. Even the more punchy 1.6-liter turbo can give you up to 30 mpg highway, which you might find a worthwhile trade if you like the rapid acceleration you get with forced induction adding torque at the lower end of the RPM spectrum.

  • 3. Easier Nighttime Driving

    The electrochromatic rearview mirror that comes with the 2021 Kia Seltos isn't the kind of thing that Diamond Bar drivers might normally think to look for, but once you have it you'll never want to drive without it again. We've all been blinded by our own rearview mirrors whether it's due to the sun setting behind us or someone forgetting to switch off their LED high-beams while approaching from behind. With the auto-dimming rearview mirror in the 2021 Kia Seltos, you'll no longer have to reposition the mirror manually or face the discomfort of all that glare - it will sense the brightness and automatically dim so you can stay focused on the road ahead and still know that there is someone behind you.

  • 4. The Unique Design Gives Greater Interior Volume

    While the fairly squarish shape of the new Kia Seltos may give it a commanding road presence for a small SUV, it also has major benefits for the interior experience as well. For starters, it means that the arch of the doors won't limit rear-seat head room, so even your taller friends can easily fit into the backseat comfortably. It also means maximized cargo space from floor to ceiling, with up to 26.6 cubic feet with all seats in place. Fold the rear seats down and that expands to nearly 63 cubic feet, giving you room to help your friends move, even if you don't want to.

  • 5. Available BOSE® Premium Audio

    Compact SUVs rarely get truly high-end audio systems, but Kia decided that the top Seltos trim was worth the upgrade. An eight-speaker BOSE® premium audio system will give you incredible clarity and depth whether you listen to today's bass-heavy pop music or the bright treble of old-school jazz. With presets for different types of music as well as voice-only settings for podcasts and phone calls, you'll hear everything clearly with this system in your new Kia SUV.

So, in the interest of showing you how the new 2021 Kia Seltos compares to its competitors, we've prepared a brief breakdown of its strengths relative to other small crossovers on the market today.

The 2021 Kia Seltos vs. The Competition
