DESIGN
Kia Seltos

The design of your next SUV means much more than its curb appeal. The size and structure also point to how it will perform on the roads and how it will add convenience to your commutes.

Sizing Up Your SUV

The Kia Seltos and the Ford Escape are sized differently, with the Escape measuring as the larger option:

 
Kia Seltos
Ford Escape
Length 172 inches 180.1 inches
Width 70.9 inches 85.6 inches
Height 63.6 inches 66 inches
Wheelbase 103.5 inches 106.7 inches

 

Agile Performance or More Space?

After taking out the measuring tape and sizing up both SUVs, there are a few items to note. For one, the Ford Escape is the larger model, which is sure to generate ample interior space for you and your crew.

However, the more compact Kia Seltos features a shorter wheelbase, which makes maneuvering and turning a more agile experience. Plus, since it’s a smaller vehicle overall, you can expect to have an easier time parallel parking, fitting into tight squeezes, or driving in a bustling city.

TECHNOLOGY
Kia Seltos

Entertainment is necessary in a car. After all, a good playlist and all your friends on board will turn a 2-hour trip into one that feels like it’s only been 20 minutes. Both the Seltos and the Escape have comprehensive cockpits filled with the technology you want and need to make the miles fly by.

Your Command Center

The Kia and the Ford share several similarities in technology. They have these features in common:

  • 8-inch touchscreen display
  • 6-speaker audio system
  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™

When working together, these features will help you enjoy every mile on the road.

Good Vibes Only

If you’re looking for a high-quality and immersive listening experience, you should choose the Kia Seltos. This SUV has an available 8-speaker Bose® premium audio system with Sound Connected Mood Lamp. As the cabin and your ears fill with music, integrated door speaker lights pulsate to the beat. They can even change color!

On the other hand, the Ford Escape offers an available 10-speaker B&O® Sound System by Bang & Olufsen®. This audio system does not have an integrated light-changing mood lamp, and it’s only an optional feature. That’s right—it doesn’t come standard on any Escape trims!

On the other hand, the Kia’s available sound system is standard on its highest trim level.

  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Rear-View Monitor

When you’re out on the road, these features will ensure you stay within your lane and out of harm’s way.

An SUV That Helps You Stay Alert

The Kia Seltos has a couple standard safety features, though, that may swing your vote. . .

  • Driver Attention Warning: This feature actively monitors your behavior for drowsy or distracted driving. If detected, you’ll be alerted to take a break.
  • Rear Occupant Alert: Before you step out of your car, this feature will alert you to any passengers or cargo in the second row.

While the Ford Escape has a few additional features of its own, the aforementioned features are unique to the Kia Seltos.
