2021 Kia Seltos EPA-Estimated fuel economy

The fuel economy of the 2021 Kia Seltos entices many shoppers to it. If you have the front-wheel drive of the S trim, you’ll have an EPA-estimated 29 miles per gallon in the city, 34 mpg on the highway, and 31 mph combined. However, the other trims have all-wheel drive, and the S trim has it as an option. So, for the LX, S (AWD), and EX, you’ll have an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 27 mpg in the city, 31 mpg on the highway, and a combined 29 mpg. Move up to the S Turbo or SX Turbo and you’ll find 25 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, creating 27 mpg combined. Not too shabby for an SUV!
