As for another utility on our lot, the 2021 Kia Seltos, visibility is the word that comes to mind, in every sense of meaning.
The SX-trimmed Seltos in Starbright Yellow is easy to spot in a parking lot; and certainly sticks out among all the silvers and grays you see during your commute.
But, visibility is also high from the driver’s seat. Despite a minimal greenhouse, with rising sheet-metal that leads to chunky rear quarters, it’s easy to see all around you and a breeze to maneuver the Seltos in small places.
In the 5th month of our yearlong test, we’ve only driven about 6,000-miles; and all of the shorter trips has our fuel mileage continuing a slight downward trend to a still good 27.1 miles-per-gallon.
We had a fair amount of late winter snow here in the Mid-Atlantic, and the Seltos kept us moving, with not only torque vectoring all-wheel-drive, but a manual locking center diff. that ensures power gets split equally between the front and rear axles, for optimum traction.
