From the looks of it, the new 2024 Kia Seltos has this appealing (even up to the point of being gorgeous) ride. The Seltos has been known for its great combo of fun to drive performance, spacious cabin, and also stylish appearance, and it’s a good thing that you can expect more for the 2024 model. It’s only logical that you can expect more from the Seltos within Kia’s lineup. After all, Kia’s lineup is packed with valuable vehicles with great values. So, you can really expect a lot of things from Kia’s upcoming lineup, really.
The Updated Plan
Kia Seltos has this special place between the bigger Sportage and the smaller Soul. That’s why Seltos is placed within the sector to compete against Nissan Kicks and Hyundai Kona. However, when compared to the other subcompact rides, Seltos is a tad bit bigger, which is designed for more cargo space. The 2024 model would get a refresh style, making the crossover more appealing than the previous models. You can even expect improved infotainment technology within the interior for greater comfort and convenient.
According to the plan, the new Seltos would be offered with two powertrain options with four cylinder units, and it covers turbocharged unit with 195 hp. Most model trim would be coming with all wheel driving system as the standard. Unlike other vehicles whose base model trim is lacking of standard good features, the one in Seltos can offer good utility and value. It’s no wonder that the Seltos becomes one of the most favorable small crossovers ever designed.
For the 2024 model, the car experience refreshed design on both the interior as well as exterior areas. With updated lighting elements and new grille, the SUV has an improved exterior. Top it off with new rear light bar (connecting to the taillamps) and also improved wheel design, and you get yourself a high quality vehicle.
For the interior cabin, you can expect an improved infotainment panel along with two big screens. A rotary controller seems to replace the shift lever. For the new 2024 model, a new trim, X-Line, has been added to the lineup. It’s a rugged looking vehicle that has unique exterior design. The new model offers a new auto 8 speed transmission, replacing the previous model with only 7 speed transmission.
Prices and Trim Levels
The base trim level would be the LX with estimated price tag of $25,000. The second higher option would be the S with a tag price of $26,000. The next one would be the EX with $28,000 price, and then the X-Line with $29,000 tag. The highest trim level would be the SX with a tag of $30,000.
Powertrain and Performance
For the 2024 Kia Seltos, you can expect not one, but two four cylinder units. The first one is the 2.0 liter unit that can deliver 147 hp. The second one would be the turbocharged unit with 1.6 liter capacity to generate 195 hp. Those, who have tried the Seltos with its turbocharged 1.6 liter unit (when it was able to generate 175 hp), stated that the power was fun and pleasant. It was more than enough to deliver fun driving experience.
The base engine was paired with CVT, while the turbocharged unit was paired with auto 8 speed transmission. The standard driving system is all wheel, except for the S trim. As a result, the Seltos is able to provide smooth and yet firm ride, with also convenient handling. When compared to Outlander Sport (Mitsubishi) or Compass (Jeep), the performance is more composed and entertaining. Expect the new 2024 Kia Seltos to be available in 2023 although the exact date is still unknown.
