2021 Kia Seltos

Does America need another small crossover SUV? Well, we might not need one, but after you take a look at the all-new Kia Seltos you could well decide you want one. The Seltos draws styling inspiration from its big brother, the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year Kia Telluride, borrowing many of its details.
