Kia Seltos Review Kia Seltos' base models come with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, but more expensive trims include a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that produces 175 horsepower.

Even while the base LX model of the Kia Seltos comes equipped with popular driver-assistance systems and delivers a respectable list of standard entertainment devices,

the higher trims are more likely to satisfy modern SUV Kia Seltos consumers with further benefits and a choice of accessible upgrades.

Kia Seltos Price The basic MSRP of the 2023 Kia Seltos is $22,840, which is about typical for the subcompact SUV class.

The cost increases to $26,140 for the entry-level EX trim and to $28,340 for the top-of-the-line SX.

Another advantage the Kia Seltos has over rival subcompact SUVs like the Mazda CX-30 and Nissan Kicks is its slightly larger size, which also means it has a little more inside space.

Kia Seltos Interior The Seltos has substantially more room for passengers and cargo inside than the Kona does.

The interior's materials have been carefully picked, and they are elegant enough to look at home in the showroom next to the company's superb Telluride SUV.

The pricier SX variant comes standard with inside ambient lighting that can be configured to pulse in time with the music similarly to the technology Kia offers in the smaller Soul SUV.

The Seltos' EX trim offers the best value. The SX model will have practically everything, but the EX is also well-equipped but considerably less expensive.

In the Seltos, Kia offers two alternative four-cylinder engines: a 2.0-liter with 146 horsepower or a 1.6-liter turbocharged with 175.

If we're talking about Kia Seltos MPG, front-wheel-drive vehicles with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder are predicted to achieve highway fuel economy of up to 35 mpg.
