Head to Head | 2021 Nissan Qashqai vs Kia Seltos in London, Ontario | Finch NissanJun 7th, 2021
The 2021 Nissan Qashqai amplifies the excitement of daily driving. Let’s see how it stacks up against the Kia Seltos.
Offering a long list of standard driver assist features, through Safety Shield 360 and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, flexible cargo space and a sleek design.
The 2021 Qashqai stands out from the pack, as one of the few vehicles in the compact crossover category to offer 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels. This gives the Qashqai a strong stance unlike the 17 or 18 inch wheels on most of its competitors such as the 2021 Kia Seltos.
The Qashqai has been one of our top sellers in Canada for reasons such as quality and design. You can find genuine, leather appointed Zero Gravity Seats providing a sense of comfort and quality, compared to the Seltos’s synthetic leatherette finish and standard seat design.
When it’s time to stow your personal items, the Seltos provides a cargo privacy cover, which is typical for a crossover. The Qashqai on the other hand, offers many options to keep items safe while on the road. With the available Divide-N-Hide® feature, the back seats fold flat, and a panel can be raised to keep your valuables in place.
While the Kia Seltos offers some driver assist features, the Nissan Qashqai offers available ProPILOT Assist which helps you stay centred in the lane and helps control distance between the vehicle ahead.
While the 2021 Kia Seltos is equipped with a Rear View Camera, the Qashqai is equipped with an Intelligent Around View® Monitor, a technology which Nissan pioneered over 12 years ago. This system uses four cameras creating a virtual 360-degree bird’s-eye view of your vehicle, making it easier to park in tight spaces.
