The Kia Seltos made its debut in February 2020. In fact, it was the last vehicle we crossed a border to go test drive. Yes, it was the last of the pre-pandemic launches. The model then presented was the 2021 product, so it hasn't changed since.

Which also means that its jack-of-all-trades format is the same, and just as practical and convenient as when we first drove it. Some subcompact SUVs suffer from space limitations, either for humans or things, but that's not the case here. The Seltos offers everything you need without being too massive.
