Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

The Seltos rocks a sharp new style that was first previewed in concept form earlier this year.

The LED headlights have plenty of unique details, and they blend well with Kia's "Tiger Nose" grille design.

Out back, it kind of looks like a Ford Escape, albeit with some more expressive angles around the rear hatch.

Kia will offer the Seltos with three different engines, likely depending on the target market.

Depending on the engine, it comes mated to either a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, a six-speed automatic or a CVT.

Kia didn't mention drivetrain layout, but it's likely front-wheel drive, and while all-wheel drive might be an option, it's not available on the Hyundai Venue.

Its infotainment system measures up to 10.25 inches, which is pretty darn large for this segment, and it allows the screen to display multiple features at once.
