The 2021 Kia SUV Lineup is Short but Sweet

In the past several years, Kia has quickly become more and more popular. Thanks to sporty options like the Stinger and highly-regarded third-row seat SUVs like the Telluride, the brand is doing a lot to re-establish itself as a reliable option that’s worth buying over and over again. With this year’s lineup of Kia SUVs, there are four more reasons to love the brand.

The most popular option

The Kia Telluride has been one of the most talked-about cars since its arrival. The capable third-row seat-bearing SUV offers everything buyers seem to be looking for, as well as striking appearances, for a modest price, making it one of the most popular vehicles in the Kia lineup and the top choice among many of its competitors. Of course, it’s also received several awards and accolades, in case you weren’t convinced.

The newest Kia SUV option

Kia did so well in their takeover of the third-row seat SUV that they decided to give it a shot in the affordable compact SUV market. In the past few years, the company has introduced its newest addition to its lineup, the Kia Seltos. Its sporty and spunky designs combine modern touches with minimalism to produce an option that’s incredibly affordable but still desirable.

The odd Kia SUV

Unlike the other options in the 2021 Kia lineup, the Sportage isn’t quite as modern or sharp in its design features. In fact, the vehicle altogether looks a bit quirky, making it a great option if you want something that looks different. It doesn’t offer anything exciting in the way of performance, ride quality or styling, but this spunky compact SUV still has a lot to love.

The Kia Sorento

The 2021 Kia Sorento is another striking SUV from the growing brand, offering as much space and seating capacity as the also popular Telluride, but fits drivers who are looking for something with sportier body liners and a more aggressive front fascia. While you can’t really go wrong with either option, each one has its own distinct appearances that set them apart for drivers wanting different styles.
