• The Kia Seltos gets a styling refresh for 2024
  • Current 7-speed dual-clutch transmission gets traded for an 8-speed automatic
  • An available panoramic screen combines the cluster and infotainment screens

Kia has debuted the refreshed 2024 version of its Seltos compact SUV, with updated styling, more horsepower for its turbocharged engine, and a new transmission. It’s expected to go on sale in the first half of 2023.

The revamped styling includes a larger “tiger nose” grille and revised front bumper, new rear lighting, vertical fog lamps integrated with the daytime running lights, available full-projection LED headlamps, and available “Star Map” lighting across the grille. There are also new wheel designs and exterior colours.

Inside, this little Kia benefits from a new 4.2-inch instrument cluster, new dash trim, and in what the automaker is calling a “segment-first,” an available panoramic screen that upgrades the cluster to a 10.25-inch and combines it with a 10.25-inch centre infotainment display.

As before, the Seltos comes in front- or all-wheel-drive, and the base engine is a 2.0L four-cylinder that makes 146 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque, mated to an automatic continuously-variable transmission (CVT). The optional 1.6L turbocharged engine gains an extra 20 horses, taking it to 195 horsepower, along with 195 lb-ft of torque as before.

The current Seltos mates the turbo engine to a seven-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission, which was frequently faulted for its tendency to hesitate when shifting at lower speeds. It will now be replaced with an eight-speed automatic, which Kia says will give it a “more seamless and lively performance.”

In line with other Kia models, the 2024 Seltos will also receive an X-Line trim, which adds a grille with gunmetal finish, black roof rack, gloss black door garnish, and unique 18-inch wheels.

Other new standard or available features across the lineup will include two front and two rear USB ports, power liftgate, ventilated seats, over-the-air infotainment and map updates, and a “digital key” that lets drivers use their phones for locking, unlocking, and driving.

Pricing will be announced closer to launch. In Canada, the 2023 Seltos starts at $23,695 for the LX FWD, and tops out at $33,695 for the SX Turbo.
