Kia Reveals Refreshed 2024 Kia Seltos

2024 Seltos

Last month Kia announced a refresh of their 2024 Seltos model. The first Seltos model was announced in 2019, and it has proven to be a safe and affordable SUV in Kia’s catalog. According to Kia, 50% of Seltos buyers come from a different brand. It seems that they plan to use the Seltos to appeal to a younger demographic and bring them into the Kia Brand. This means that the Seltos are a major player in Kia’s lineup. Let’s see what’s new to the 2024 Seltos and if it will live up to its previous models.

You’ll be able to find the 2024 Kia Seltos at Lawrence Kia in the second half of 2023. Be sure to come and test drive it once it hits our lot!

Upgraded Futuristic Design

The 2024 Seltos has received a refresh to both the exterior and interior, following a futuristic turn that Kia has been going towards. The most noticeable change is to the front grill, which is now a tiger nose grille. The front headlights will also have an option for the Star Map signature headlights.  There are also changes to the rear lights; they now look closer to the signature lights on the front.

The Seltos will now come in three new colors, Pluton Blue, Fusion Black, and Valais Green. There will now be an option to include the new X-Line trim that Kia released. This option includes 18-inch wheels, a Black bridge-type roof rack, and the X-Line badging. There will also be new geometric wheel designs on LX, S, EX, and SX trim for a more futuristic look.

The interior will now be updated with a new dash trim that matches the horizontal design on the exterior. The Seltos 2024 will have a panoramic screen display that combines a 10.25-inch instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch center display.

A Bump In Power

The new Seltos has also refreshed its engine, adding 20 extra horses for a total of 195 horsepower, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Kia strives to make the Seltos drive a smooth and comfortable ride. There will also be three driving modes; Normal, Smart, and Sport. These modes will give drivers a bigger range of experiences while driving, making off-roading better.

2.0-liter four-cylinder MPI engine offers 146 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque routed through an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). Intelligent Variable Transmissions are designed to get power to the wheels much faster than the average automatic transmission, meaning the power in the new 2024 Seltos will easily get up and go.

More Tech

The 2024 Seltos is getting an update to its technology, allowing consumers to go farther and faster. The Seltos will have Four USB ports, two in front and two in the back. This will allow for more charging capabilities. The SX Sunroof Package includes Ventilated front seats and a Power liftgate. Ventilated seats will cool seats in a similar way to seat warmers.

The Kia Connect app will now allow Seltos drivers to use their phone or apple watch as a virtual key using the Kia Digital Key 2 Touch. The SX Sunroof Package will also allow drivers to share their virtual keys with others. This will give drivers more freedom and control over their situations. To use the Kia Digital Key 2 Touch, you will need a subscription to the Kia Connect app. Kia does say that certain models come with a complimentary 1-year subscription, but it’s uncertain if the 2024 Seltos is eligible.

Following Kia’s excellent safety standards, The Seltos will have Kia’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Blind Spot Collision Warning, and Intelligent Speed Limit Assist. There are twelve other safety features included in the car’s system that has become standard features.

Pricing and Availability

According to Kia, the 2024 Seltos will be expected by the first half of 2023, but pricing has not been announced yet. The 2023 Seltos started at $22,890 with its S FWD model, so it’s fair to assume that the 2024 Seltos could start in that range.
