Kia has introduced a new ‘small’ SUV into their line up for 2022, the Seltos. Designed to sit between the Soul and the Sportage the Seltos pairs Kia’s distinctive style with practicality in a car that you can still easily nip around town in.
The 2022 Kia Seltos has 5 trim options starting at $22,590 with the LX trim up to the SX Turbo starting at $28,090.
What’s included with each trim? Let’s take a deeper look.
Kia Seltos LX
The 2022 Kia Seltos enters with the 2.0L 4-cylinder, 147HP LX Trim. This trim comes with the Intelligent Variable Transmission, a faster, more efficient automatic gearbox that is said to provide a much smoother driving feel, as well as an estimated 31mpg and all-wheel drive.
The Seltos also provides 17-inch Alloy Wheels, 8.0-inch Touchscreen Display with rear view camera, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Remote Keyless Entry, and Steering-Wheel Controls.
Kia has a clear focus on safety options on all their cars and there is no shortage of safety features available on the Seltos. All Trim levels come with Forward Collision-Avoidance, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, and Driver Attention Warning, High Beam Assist, Lane Following Assist and Rear Occupant Alert.
There are only 4 exterior colour options on the LX so if having an interesting colour is important you may want to look at the other trim options.
Kia Seltos S
Starting at $22,790 the Seltos S is the next trim option. There are 9 colour options including 3 dual colour ways offering different roof colour to body work. Same engine, transmission and power as the LX but comes as Front-Wheel drive with the option to change to All-Wheel drive.
The interior treats you with a larger 10.25-inch Touchscreen display with navigation, automatic climate control and leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
Kia Seltos Nightfall Edition
The Nightfall Edition is the ‘special edition’ in this range starting from $26,790, has a 1.6L Turbocharged 4-cylinder engine pushing an extra 28 BHP over the LX and S trims. The Nightfall comes as All-wheel drive with torque vectoring, and Kia’s 7-speed Quick Shift DCT Transmission.
This trim boasts 18-inch Alloy wheels with matte black finish, black roof rails and exterior accents, and cloth seats with blue stitching detail. There are the same 9 colourways available as the S as well as the same interior and safety features.
Kia Seltos EX
Next up is the EX, starting at $25,890. Only 6 exterior colour options and no dual roof colourways. However, the EX offers both grey and black SynTex interior options. The styling is slightly different as the EX has an upgraded Grille with integrated LED light bar and power sunroof.
The engine, performance and safety are the same as the S but comes in the All-Wheel drive set up and the interior provides wireless phone charging, rear USB ports, and push button start.
Kia Seltos SX Turbo
The top trim is the SX Turbo starting at $28,090. Same performance to the Nightfall but without the Nightfall styling. The SX still comes with machine finish 18-inch alloy wheels, sport steering wheel, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, smart cruise control, and electronic parking brake.
With 12 colour options and 3 interior seat trims to choose from, the SX is the most customisable option.
The Seltos offers a great range of options to suit individual needs and of course as with all Kia models comes with their incredible 10 year/100,000 mile warranty.
