High Gear Quick Review | 2021 Kia Seltos SX AWD

The Kia Seltos is new for 2021. From launch, it is available with two engines, the more powerful of the two being a 1.6-liter turbocharged 4 cylinder. These same two engines are offered in the Hyundai Kona. The top-of-the line SX comes standard with the 1.6-liter unit, providing an ample 175bhp @ 5500rpm.

Kia is clearly ahead in the design stakes, with bold sporty styling for the Seltos SX. Plastic body cladding and large rims visually shrink the Seltos and give it more stance. The SX goes on sale from $29,010.
