Kia has created a new iteration of the Niro and the Soul with 2023 model year intros for both of those well-performing models from their lineup. Kia in the meantime, has decided in their infinite wisdom, to draw attention over to the third subcompact SUV in the U.S. lineup: the Kia Seltos. Aside from the front-wheel drive services of it’s cousins, the 2024 Kia Seltos provides compatibility as Kia’s SUV, complete with all-wheel-drive.
To drive home this fact is visible in introducing a new X-Line trim with more of a rugged look to the Seltos. All in the manner of distinct 18-inch wheels, trim-specific grille design, and even special badging, along with other things.
With no X-Line kit, the 2024 Seltos uses a number of design improvements, nearly all of which had been previewed by the Korean-market Seltos revealed by Kia in June. Notably, this also involves a revised front end with a large grille, with new front and rear faces, and a new full-width taillight design as well.
Power continuously operates from one of two four-cylinder engine options: a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter or a turbocharged 1.6-liter unit.
The one from before mates to what seems to be a continuously variable automatic transmission or CVAT. That allows the driver to see its stable of horses grow by one to 147 horsepower. However, the latter benefits from a 20-horsepower bump, netting a total of 195 horsepower. A new eight-speed automatic transmission replaces the current car’s seven-speed unit.
The Kia Seltos uses a new cabin with plenty of convenience items like adaptive cruise control, but the items are actually linked to the top-line Seltos SX as the LX, S and EX trims are also available. The Power is dispensed from a variety of energy producing engine options. It’s also very evident that the new transmission comes in the form of an eight-speed transmission.
The 2024 Kia Seltos has a base price risen in accordance to the 2023 Kia Seltos’ price of $24,185. You should be expecting the revamped Seltos to hit the dealerships in the early half of 2023. Isn’t that just so exciting? Get ready to tear up the streets with the Kia Seltos and you’ll never want to return to another automobile ever again.
It’s a great refresh of a car to really use in the field. The car offers a brand-new dashboard and instrument infotainment panel. The car surely offers a good experience for anyone who drives it.
