My Review of the 2021 Kia Seltos

Kia has been on a tear in recent years and has released some of the most compelling vehicles on the market.

The sedan fits within a section of the auto world that essentially meant to satisfy those who are in need of something compact yet comfortable, high-tech, and yet practical.

The Kia Sorento was first introduced back in 2002, and with the brief exception of the short-lived Kia Borrego in the late 2000s, has been Kia’s largest and most capable SUV.

In the market for vehicles that can accommodate more than five passengers with exceptional drivability, superior fuel economy, and sufficient cargo space, the options are relatively limited.

Savvy car buyers seeking a vehicle that doesn’t break the bank but still offers a fun driving experience and desirable features have a few surprising options. Though car prices are becoming as onerous as mortgage loans, some car manufacturers are making choices to offer vehicles that don’t require you to drive a vehicle dating back [...]

Kia is no stranger to whipping up some decent publicity for its new models and updates to existing models.

When considering sedans, some might argue that curb appeal isn’t what it once was. With the onslaught of crossovers and compact SUVs, the poor sedan has lost some of its luster.
