Power Through City Traffic with This Crossover SUV, Perfect for Your “Work Hard, Play Hard” Lifestyle

When making a big investment, it’s important that you choose the one that fits and supports your lifestyle best. You could be constantly on the road meeting up with teammates and clients, pushing through heavy weekday traffic, and working overtime at the office to make sure your projects succeed with flying colors. Meanwhile, during your off days, you’re always raring to ­go on relaxing adventures outside of the Metro—taking road trips up the mountains or down to the beach as a reward for a hard week’s work and to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

For you, life can get pretty hectic and you need a car that can keep up with your need to balance this “work hard, play hard” attitude you take a lot of pride in. You’ll need one that is versatile, on-the-go, and powerful while also making you look good and feel good when you’re on the road—and the Kia Seltos can offer just that and more!


In many ways, the Kia Seltos is a great companion for the dynamic driver. This subcompact crossover SUV with its muscular curves and bold exterior design is built to help you push through city traffic smoothly and stylishly so you can always arrive at your destination in a sleek fashion. This is a car that can catch attention, with its distinctive tiger-nose grille, dynamic lines and details, and suave “larger-than-life” appearance yet compact size, that you’d be proud to take it around every day.

But if you think this car is only best within the confines of the metro, you’re mistaken; the Kia Seltos is just as powerful during leisurely off-road drives on even the most rugged of terrains, thanks to a couple of components: the extensive use of advanced high strength steel that makes it strong and robust; Kia’s Intelligent Variable Transmission that enables a responsive and precise drive; well-balanced suspension; and different driving modes (Normal, Eco, Sport) and traction modes (Mud, Snow/Wet, Sand) that you can easily switch to depending on your environment.

So whether you’re jumping from city to city for work or exploring the lush nature of provinces, you can depend on this car to power through it all without making you feel like you’re exerting a lot of effort to control it. The Kia Seltos is so agile too that you can maneuver through tight roads and sharp corners with ease. Plus, it’s fuel-efficient—perfect for long drives!

The interior makes for an invigorating drive as much as its handsome outside appearance does. Comfort is the top priority, as is its impressive tech-savvy features—particularly its built-in infotainment system. The high-definition eight-inch touchscreen display allows the usual Bluetooth and auxiliary connectivity to enjoy your curated on-the-road music playlist, AM/FM radio entertainment, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so you can answer calls safely and hands-free. In terms of safety and convenience, the car features a rear-view camera and rear parking sensor, speed-sensing door locks, automatic climate control, and adaptive cruise control to alleviate the stress of long commutes. It is enabled with a smart push-start ignition as well that removes the hassle of fumbling with keys when you’re already raring to start driving.

Comfort is provided through spacious legroom on both the driver and passenger seats, firm and supportive seat cushions, and quite a ton of storage spaces in the front to hold your phone, accessories, snacks and drinks, and spare change, as well as its reclining and full flat-folding rear seats that can enlargen the already sizable trunk space that’s quite huge for a car this size!

Trunk Space

All this considered, you’d think that the Kia Seltos would make you break the bank. But really, it’s quite the opposite! You get so much more than what you give without burning a hole in your pocket. While SUVs are generally expensive, the Kia Seltos is such a steal at PHP 1,095,000 for the Kia Seltos 2.0 LX, PHP 1,198,000 for the 2.0 EX, and PHP 1,505,000 for the 2.0 SX, all at SRP. It feels premium but doesn’t cost an exorbitant amount, so you can confidently trust that your investment is worth it. And with its five-year warranty and five-year free 24/7 Road Side Assistance even on holidays, you’ll be granted peace of mind that wherever you go, no matter how long the distance, you can rely on Kia to help you.

Truly, the Kia Seltos is the best option for those who value having a work-and-life balance—who are passionate about their profession and make the most out of their free time with fun-filled getaways.

Make the bold choice with the boldest crossover that’s designed for you. Find out more about the Kia Seltos through Kia Philippines’ official website, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter.
