Details are still garbage, trickling through here and there, contradicting one article to the next. I think they pulled the pano sunny from the Hybrid EX and lumped it into a thousand dollar convenience package. Wheel/tire packages may have changed on the Hybrid as well. AWD is an option on the Hybrid now, as well as second row heated seats.

For what I paid and what I received, I'm more than happy with the '21 Hybrid EX.

Mainly this:

  • Standard memory seats with greater adjustability
    • 14-way seat adjustments (upgraded from 10-way)
    • Four-way power lumbar (upgraded from two-way power lumbar)
    • Newly added thigh extender
  • Standard rear heated captain’s chairs

All very good additions, despite being SXP only. Those should have been standard options in the '21 SX trim, and optioned on the EX as a comfort package.

Since we keep creating multiple posts on the same topic and the questions end up being on page 2 and never seen.

Horizontal LEDs in the taillights are also a change, seems to be only on the HEV in the pics. Does the PHEV have horizontal LEDs?

Another key point is the 10.25" touchscreen on all models.

I looked around and didn't find the actual info on the changes. Only speculation. The Kia Media - official info was released on Friday the 27th.

oh how nice of them to have memory seats available now. still no interior ambient lighting.
Yeah, only on the SX-P though...apparently spending $40k on the SX AWD isn't enough to get memory seats 🤬

Might sound crazy but would it be possible at all to get memory seats installed into the 21 models now?

X-Line is the AWD package - it also changes the bumpers - no side vents for the X-Line... I kinda like the side vents though.
You don't have to have X-Line to have AWD also. Also, are the raised roof rails part of the Prestige or X-Line package?

The EX X-Line has raised roof rails, so I believe it's part of the X-Line package, but maybe both. It'd be nice if they simply spelled it out :unsure:

So it looks like the X-Line gets the "off road" bumpers - the roof rack and a 1" height advantage.

If I would have waited I would have paid $625 more 🤣

I did notice that the remote start key is an option now (included in the SX before)

In the nearby inventory I noticed some S X-Lines already going to dealers in OH/WV.

It's still standard, not sure why it says that. I noticed that too but think it's a website mistake. I'll check into it though.
