The Car Guide rating 76%(view ratings)
For 2024, the Kia Seltos receives cosmetic revisions and a new X-Line model with adventure in mind. Under the hood, the standard 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine produces 147 horsepower through a continuously variable transmission, while the turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine gets a boost from 175 horsepower to 195 horsepower and loses its seven-speed dual-clutch transmission in favour of a conventional eight-speed autobox. One thing that hasn’t changed is the Seltos’ excellent value.
