Current Model
The Kia Seltos slots below the Sportage, and offers versatility at an affordable price. It has a roomy interior for its small footprint, easy access, clear visibility, and good fuel economy.
The standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, paired with a continuously variable transmission, provides unobtrusive acceleration. The up level 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine suffers from nonlinear acceleration. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional. The stiff ride and loud cabin are two significant drawbacks. Handling is responsive and secure. Controls are easy to use, and the rear seat is roomy for the class. For 2022, FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, and lane keeping assistance are standard, as is a rear-seat reminder. BSW and RCTW come standard on EX trims and above.
