2024 Kia Seltos

Kia America has recently announced the pricing for the updated 2024 Seltos, which promises drivers with an array of new and improved features. The entry-level SUV is available for both on and off-road adventures and starts at an MSRP of $24,390, excluding the $1,325 destination fee.

Exterior Refinements

Kia has redesigned the 2024 Seltos, offering drivers a more comfortable and engaging driving experience. The exterior design has been refined, giving the car a more commanding presence on the road. The tiger nose grille has been enlarged, and the lighting has been updated with available projection LED headlamps and a unique rear lighting design.

Interior Upgrades

Inside the cabin, the centerpiece is an available panoramic display that seamlessly integrates the 10.25-inch instrument cluster and 10.25-inch center display. The available Digital Key 2 Touch allows users to use their compatible smart devices as a virtual key to lock, unlock, and drive, which is available on the SX Sunroof Package.

Powerful Engine

One of the most significant updates in the 2024 Seltos is the increased turbocharged power on certain trims. The car now comes with a more powerful 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces an extra 20 horsepower, bringing the total to 195 horsepower. Complementing the available turbocharged engine is an 8-speed automatic transmission, which replaces the outgoing 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Base models will continue to use the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with the Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT).

Advanced Safety Features

The 2024 Seltos comes with a range of advanced driver assistance features, including a rear camera display, rear occupant alert, forward collision avoidance assist with car, pedestrian, and cyclist detection, driver attention warning, lane keeping assist system, lane departure warning system, lane following assist, and high beam assist. The S, EX, X-Line, and SX trims come with blind spot collision warning and rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist. The S, EX, X-Line, and SX trims also have safe exit assist, while the SX trim comes with forward collision avoidance assist with junction turning and smart cruise control with stop and go, plus navigation-based smart cruise control curve.

The 2024 Seltos has an overall length of 172.6 inches, an overall width of 70.9 inches, and an overall height of 63.4 inches (without roof rails) or 64.0 inches (with roof rails).
