With its starting price of just $23,340, the 2023 Kia Seltos is an incredible value. This stylish compact SUV offers great fuel economy, is equipped with tons of advanced tech, and has a versatile interior that can adapt to your needs.
The 2023 Kia Seltos is available in five trim levels: LX, S, EX, Nightfall Edition, and SX.
The standard powertrain on the 2023 Seltos is a 2.0-liter engine and an Intelligent Variable Transmission that get up to 27 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. With the standard Drive Mode Select system, you can switch between Normal, Sport, and Eco to enjoy your preferred driving style. There’s also the option of adding the Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive system for improved traction on various road conditions like snow, rain, and ice.
When you go with the Seltos Nightfall Edition or Seltos SX trims, you’ll have a more powerful 1.6-liter turbo engine under the hood. This works with a seven-speed Dual Clutch Transmission to deliver a still impressive 25 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
To help you stay safe on every journey, the new Kia Seltos is equipped with a handful of standard advanced driver-assist safety systems. The technologies included on the base trim of this budget-friendly SUV include Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Following Assist, and Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist with Pedestrian Detection.
In addition to those helpful features, the base Seltos LX also comes with Driver Attention Warning — which monitors your fatigue levels behind the wheel — and Rear Occupant Alert that reminds you to check the back seat when you exit the vehicle.
Along with innovative safety technologies to keep you safe, the new Seltos also has a ton of smart tech that adds convenience and entertainment to your drives. The standard 8-inch touch-screen display works seamlessly with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ so you can use all of your favorite compatible apps directly on the screen. You can also connect your devices via Bluetooth® wireless technology and through the front console USB data port.
By choosing just one trim above the base LX, you’ll have the option of upgrading to the available 10.25-inch touch-screen display that comes with a navigation system, SiriusXM® satellite radio, and Kia Connect. Additional available tech on the 2023 Seltos includes a wireless smartphone charger, a Bose® eight-speaker audio system, and USB charging ports in both rows.
The interior of the Kia Seltos is exceptionally versatile and can be outfitted with all kinds of useful and comfortable amenities. For starters, the five-passenger setup includes a rear 60/40 split-folding and reclining bench seat. When you fold this down completely, you’ll have 62.8 cubic feet of cargo space to utilize behind the front seats. That’s more than what competitors like the Chevy Trailblazer and Honda HR-V offer. Additional storage can be found in the front center armrest of the Seltos as well as in the back via the dual level cargo floor.
When it comes to comfort, you’ll have the option of woven cloth, a combination of cloth and SynTex (synthetic leather), or just SynTex seats in the Seltos — depending on the trim you choose. The Seltos EX elevates the cabin with a 10-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar support as well as heated front seats. But you can get a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob by opting for the Seltos S, just one above the base LX.
For its incredibly low price, the 2023 Seltos goes big on style. This boldly designed compact SUV features sharp projector beam headlights (available LED), a sporty rear spoiler, power-adjustable side view mirrors, and 17-inch alloy wheels in a Dark Gray finish.
The exterior can be painted in one of many attractive colors, including the bright Neptune Blue or one of the two-tone options that give the Seltos a Cherry Black or Clear White roof.
