The Kia Seltos is a small SUV that arrived in 2019 to fill a notable hole in the company’s otherwise diverse line-up.
Despite its crossover-like appearance, the model offers a combination of generous boot and cabin space, coupled with 1.6-litre turbo power and all-wheel drive at the pointy end of the range. It's situated between Kia's compact SUV the Kia Stonic and its larger sibling the Kia Sportage.

About the Kia Seltos
The Kia Seltos small SUV arrived in 2019 to fill a notable hole in the company’s otherwise diverse line-up.
Despite its crossover-like appearance, the model offers a combination of generous boot and cabin space, coupled with 1.6-litre turbo power and all-wheel drive at the pointy end of the range.
Most variants of a five-grade range are offered with front-wheel drive and a less powerful 2.0-litre non-turbo petrol.
A ‘mid-life’ update for the Kia Seltos arrived relatively soon after its introduction in 2022, which included a significant facelift and a boost to its technology.
