The 2024 Kia Seltos was introduced recently with many improvements, namely a more powerful turbo engine, more connectivity and safety technology, and new and rugged X-Line trim. The Seltos holds the distinction of being the most popular model in its class, and the 2024 model should have no difficulty staying on top with its impressive list of features. The refreshed Seltos offers a blend of refined design and performance upgrades, setting a new benchmark for buyers seeking a perfect mix of style and functionality in a fun and efficient sport utility vehicle.
The 2024 Seltos showcases a refreshed look with distinctive headlight and rear combination taillights that feature a ‘star-map’ signature. This adds to its already recognizable stance on the road. Moreover, updates to the front and rear bumpers, including a redesigned radiator grille and vertical fog lights, further elevate its appearance. Those seeking a unique touch have the option to choose from two new colors: Valais Green and Pluton Blue.
Inside, the Seltos borrows design elements from recent Kia launches, presenting an extended dashboard configuration. This comes complete with a 10.25-inch full LCD cluster and an optional panoramic 10.25-inch multimedia display. The modernized interior also boasts a revamped center console, contemporary air vents, and an option for a Sofino Gentle Brown Leather finish. Every aspect of the new 2024 Seltos ensures a pleasurable journey. Notably, the inclusion of second-row heated seats ensures that passengers experience cozy warmth during chilly winter drives while a memory function for the front seats makes it easier to find the perfect driving position. Last but not least, an automatic tailgate gives you hands-free access to the tailgate.
A notable introduction is the X-Line trim. This version stands out with its gunmetal-colored radiator/grille, front/rear skid plate, glossy black side body molding, and 18” black wheels. Additionally, black roof rails give it a rugged yet sophisticated appearance.
Tech enthusiasts will appreciate the upgraded features in the 2024 Seltos. Beyond the available head-up display, Bose premium sound system, and wireless charging, new additions include a power tailgate, Digital Key 2 Touch, and a 2-setting driver memory seat.
The Digital Key 2 Touch is a standout feature in the new 2024 Seltos. This system allows drivers to unlock, start, and drive the car without a traditional key. Instead, it leverages a smartphone app, transforming your phone into a smart car key. This provides not only convenience but also an added layer of security, as access can be shared or revoked digitally. Further enhancing the driver experience, the Seltos includes a power tailgate, making loading and unloading more effortless. Additionally, the driver memory seat remembers two different seating positions, ensuring that drivers can switch and instantly find their preferred driving posture.
Safety hasn't been overlooked, with enhanced Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) ensuring a secure driving experience. This suite of driver assistance features includes multiple different technologies. The Forward Collision Avoidance Assist (FCA) is an advanced system designed to detect potential collisions with vehicles ahead. If a potential collision is detected, it can automatically apply the brakes, aiming to either mitigate the severity of a crash or prevent it altogether. In tandem with this, the Lane Keep Assist (LKA) and Lane Following Assist (LFA) work collaboratively to identify lane markings. If the vehicle begins to drift from its lane, these systems provide both audible and visual warnings to the driver and can actively steer the vehicle to ensure it remains centered within its lane. Another noteworthy safety feature is the Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist, which monitors areas that may not be immediately visible in the rearview mirrors. If a vehicle is detected in a driver's blind spot, the system sends an alert and can even apply brake pressure to specific wheels, steering the car away from a potential collision. Lastly, the Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist plays a crucial role when the vehicle is in reverse, detecting any approaching vehicles from the side.
Under the hood, the 1.6L turbo-GDI engine, available in the SX and X-Line trims, now produces 195 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. This represents an increase of 20 hp from its predecessor. Paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, the new setup ensures smoother power delivery and a more engaging drive. The standard powertrain in the 2024 Seltos is the proven 2.0-litre four-cylinder with 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. These engines deliver on power, but they are also very efficient with an average fuel economy rating of under 10.0 litres per 100 kilometres with both engines and all-wheel drive. Front-wheel drive entry-level Seltos models are even more efficient.
