Toronto, ON, Nov. 22, 2019 – Kia Canada Inc. (KCI) – Refined and right-sized for everything the Canadian landscape can throw at it, from urban alleyways to Prairie straightaways, the all-new Seltos enlivens the Entry SUV segment with an energetic personality that exemplifies the spirit of Kia. As a utility vehicle with an abundance of attitude, the Seltos arrives in North America with modern styling and a penchant for adventure, whether that means everyday driving in the city or in the wilderness on weekends. Complementing Kia’s robust SUV lineup, and following on the heels of the Telluride, the Seltos slots between the popular Soul and Sportage models, providing a premium and tech-savvy cabin, a choice of two well-tested engines and an available all-wheel drive system. Looking at all it has to offer, it’s no wonder the 2021 Kia Seltos is poised and ready to become a true contender in the fastest growing segment in Canada when it goes on-sale in 2020.

Distinctive Design

Similar to Telluride’s design theme, the Seltos is a marriage of bold design and delicate details, and stands apart from rivals with its strong, upright stance. The tall front end and up to 7.2-inch ground clearance translate to a tough attitude and an adventurous spirit. Its assertive presence is spearheaded by Kia’s signature tiger nose grille that includes unexpected diamond-like detail. Chiseled surfaces and well-drawn lines lead back to a distinctive profile.
