Kia Seltos Cars For Sale
The Kia Seltos car is one of the new offerings from the Korean stable and
is a tough contender on all counts. First launched in 2019, this subcompact
crossover SUV has a presence on the road, an external design language that
says power and ability and is all-around worthy of its name, derived from
Greek mythology, Celtos, the son of Hercules. Designed with a specific
millennial market in mind, it is a vehicle that stands out on the road. Its
roots are in a concept design that was featured at the 2018 Auto Expo and
it certainly did not lose its futurist and smooth look and feel.
External design can almost be mistaken for a Range Rover Evoque. The
slanting headlights, broad nose, prominent grille, and chrome trimmings are
adding to an overall feel of fashion. As a five-door hatch, the shape is
not too boxy and completely on-trend.
With a tech-savvy audience in mind, the interior has a feeling of luxury
and bells and whistles enough to show the manufacturer put its money where
its mouth is. All trim levels come standard with air-conditioning, auto
headlights, electric mirrors, quality cloth upholstery (can be upgraded to
leather), cruise control, and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment speaker.
Other tech necessities include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SUB ports in
the front and back, ABS, Reverse Camera, six airbags, Electronic Brake
Force Distribution, park assist sensors, and a rear park camera. The higher
trim levels offer, amongst other features, stability control, and extra
storage facilities in the armrest, 17-inch alloy wheels, and automatic
The pre-owned Kia Seltos is a comfortable drive. The 1,4litre engine moves
smoothly through the gears and control is adequate. The 1,6litre might be
slightly sluggish, without a turbo, but is still an adequate ride. Claimed
to go from 0 – 100km per hour in 9,7seconds, the power plus the
acceleration pack enough punch and offers the confidence to overtake on the
long road. Cabin noise is minimal and lends itself to luxury SUV status,
especially in the upper trim level model. Consumption for combined use is
around 7,6litre per 100km.
With a very tough sector to compete in, the used Kia Seltos for sale has an
ace up its sleeve – the price tag is significantly less than some of the
luxury SUV’s available, but it offers the same look and feel. The second
hand Kia Seltos for sale at the moment is all petrol with a turbo-diesel
planned for the future.
