Why is the Kia Seltos perfect for millennials

The Kia Seltos is a subcompact crossover being offered by the South Korean automaker. It sits in between the Stonic and Sportage, making the Seltos a middle option in Kia Philippines’ 5-seater crossover range. Aside from its strong practicality points, the subcompact crossover also combines a good amount of features with efficient performance. Notably, it’s a vehicle that fits the millennial lifestyle for so many reasons, and we’ve managed to list down some factors on why the Kia Seltos is perfect for young and youthful.

Like the Stonic, the Kia Seltos does look funky and boasts in terms of youthfulness. Its stylish exterior can even be had with a vibrant range of colors along with an optional black roof for range-topping SX trim. Some striking design cues include the brand’s tiger-nose grille accentuated with LED clusters, 17-inch Y-spoke alloys, and the SX-exclusive blacked-out side-mirrors that blend in with the optional black top. Overall, its exterior design should appeal to many millenials, and like the Stonic, the Seltos too has a ‘style that’s iconic’.

Like most crossovers, space shouldn’t be a problem in the Kia Seltos. Average-sized Filipinos have no problem fitting at the front seat, while rear occupants get a good amount of leg and headroom, allowing them to sit comfortably throughout the journey. The Seltos will surely thrill your barkada with its spacious cabin.
