Designed primarily as a replacement to the quirky Kia Soul, the more contemporary Kia Seltos is built on the same platform as the Kona from fellow South Korean car brand Hyundai. As one of the newer five-seater crossovers on the market, the Seltos brings a lot of modern flair to the table, including its array of color options.
The 2021 Kia Seltos offers buyers with a couple of two-tones (SX only) and five solid colors to choose from. Choose from the selection below to see which color suits your personality.
If the Kia Seltos has a signature color, it’s this, as it shows off the crossover’s bright and sunny disposition. As a youthful color, Starbright Yellow is a favorite among the young and young at heart. Individuals who consider yellow their favorite hue tend to like attention and have a great sense of humor. One of the Seltos colors available as a two-tone option.
The Seltos’ second two-tone color, white represents people who prefer to be clear and direct with their approach. As such, the person who chooses a Clear White Seltos tends to be orderly and organized in every aspect of life.
As a neutral and professional-looking color—gray is quite pragmatic and not as showy as sliver. As such, Iron Grey communicates subtle elegance, radiating a sophisticated vibe without being too flashy.
A darker shade of grey, Gravity Grey is a practical option for those who prefer a car that’s easy to clean while conveying a serious and professional air.
Dark Ocean Blue
Dark blue represents seriousness and integrity, and like grey, it also conveys professionalism. The color blue in general, is closely related with peace and harmony. Thus, Dark Ocean Blue Seltos buyers are likely cool-headed and even-tempered individuals. A great quality to have as a driver, especially when faced with the many aggressive car owners we have on our roads.
Orange is a catchy color for a car, and just like yellow, tends to give off youthful vibe. It is also a hue often associated with being trendy, and so car buyers who opt for a Mars Orange Seltos certainly won’t mind the attention that the color attracts.
