The Car Guide rating 80%(view ratings)
Entering its second year on the market, the popular Seltos doesn’t have any changes to brag about except maybe Kia’s new logo. When looking at the current crop of small SUVs and crossovers, this one stands out with a spacious interior, good visibility and attractive pricing. Two four-cylinder engines are available, the top choice being a turbocharged 1.6-litre unit that delivers 175 horsepower and maximizes fun behind the wheel.
