Kia has been more innovative with their designs recently, coupled with a standard 7 year warranty, which has given new car buyers confidence to buy their products.

While most car manufacturers sold less cars in 2019 than the previous year, Kia saw an increase in their sales despite this slowdown. Recently Kia released their new small SUV the Kia Seltos. Kia stated that they were inspired by Greek mythology, the name of the car represents the brave spirit of "Celtos", the son of Hercules, while the "S" signifies its speed and sportiness of this small SUV.



The Kia Seltos has an All Wheel Drive 1.6L turbocharged engine and a more fuel efficient small SUV variant; the Front Wheel Drive 2.0L Multi-point injection engine. The 2.0L engine is available on Kia Seltos Sport+ CVT, Kia Seltos Sport and S grades, whereas the 1.6L engine is available on Kia Seltos Sport+ DCT and Kia Seltos GT-Line grades.

Kia included a lot of safety features and tech options with a 2020 interior feel. The top of the range model for Kia Seltos even has a 10.25 inch screen with a 7.0 inch colour trip computer which might make the Kia Seltos the best small SUV in Australia

Kia included the following in Seltos:

- Blind Spot Detection

- Blind Spot Collision Avoidance

- Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist

- Lane Following Assist

- Autonomous Emergency Braking

- Front and Rear Parking Sensors



These car features are included in selected Kia Selots models, in addition to the colour changeable LED cabin lighting. What To Ride got the latest car news that all these car features will set a new benchmark for the small SUV expectations. Kia also took into account the back seat passengers comfort. Two adults may sit easily with rear vents and USB port but that doesn't make the new Kia Seltos a family SUV.

Kia launched its price for Seltos in Australia starting at $26,990 Drive Away and ending at their top of the range GT-Line 1.6L Petrol DCT at $42,990. If you are looking to buying a new car we recommend to test drive this new small SUV, even if you can't visit Kia car dealership near you, you can still buy car online through the Kia car selling website.
