What is the Kia Seltos’s towing capacity?

I was recently gifted a 2021 Kia Seltos from my dad (who cycles through cars like there’s no tomorrow). I’m wondering if the car is powerful enough to tow my dirt bikes around on the weekends. What is the towing capacity for a Kia Seltos?

Wow, talk about a hand-me-down! Does your dad have any other extra cars to send our way?
The 2021 Kia Seltos has a maximum towing capacity of 2,000 pounds. The 2022 Seltos has a higher capacity: 2,948 pounds.
That said, you should be good to haul around a dirt bike (or two or three) with the Seltos’s towing capacity. But your Seltos might not have the capacity you’d need to haul around an extra hefty camper trailer.
Have fun with your new car!
