Graduating college is a massive achievement, but it isn’t without its challenges. If you’ve recently left your university and entered the outside world, you probably need a reliable vehicle to carry you into adult life — and ideally, one that doesn’t break the bank. To give you some guidance, Autotrader compiled a list of the best cars for college grads, and one of their best recommendations was the all-new Kia Seltos.
On the list, Autotrader praised the Seltos for its rugged appearance, spacious interior, impressive build quality, and value-oriented price. The publication also pointed out that even with upgrades like a turbocharged engine at the highest trim level, the SUV manages to stay under $30,000.
Indeed, the all-new Seltos offers remarkable value for its price-point. The S trim — the base level — starts at just $21,990, and comes with a bevy of standard features like heated front seats, Sofino leatherette upholstery, Automatic Emergency Braking, and a Lane Departure System. You can even add all-wheel-drive to maximize capability in all road conditions.
If you’re not averse to spending a bit more for the best technology and features, you can opt for additions like a class-leading 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment display with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, as well as an eight-speaker Bose® premium sound system.
All of us at Gossett Kia South would like to congratulate all of the recent college grads in the Memphis area, and hope that a value-oriented vehicle like the 2021 Kia Seltos will help empower your newfound independence.
