Making its debut at the LA Auto Show, Kia’s all-new Seltos completes the Korean brand’s North American SUV line-up with an entry-level crossover SUV that slots in between the popular Soul and Sportage models.
Its interior design is said to reflect the theme of “upscale adventure”, according to its maker. A wide instrument panel has a high-tech feel with an asymmetrical design that skews toward the driver. The cabin is spacious and versatile with generous hip, shoulder, leg and head room in both rows, offering “more interior volume than most rivals,” says Kia.
Back seat passengers get to stretch out thanks to the rear reclining feature. More cargo space can be unlocked by lowering the adjustable luggage board, or when there’s nobody in the back, the rear seat folds down and the luggage board can be lifted for a flat loading surface. The Seltos’s combinations add up to what Kia describes as, “a leader in its class when it comes to space and versatility”.
Elsewhere in the cabin, premium details and convenience features include a “clean and sophisticated” gauge cluster in 3.5in OLED or 7in Supervision, depending on the trim grade; available leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and sliding front console cover; and fractal pattern Bose speakers and six sophisticated color themes that echo the signature sound-connected mood lighting found in the smaller Soul.
