South Trail Kia
Kia vehicles are renowned for squeezing a huge amount of features, power, and character into an affordable package, and the Seltos stays true to this well-earned reputation. Built to a subcompact SUV format for convenient and comfortable urban driving, it's also got the power to tackle strenuous highway journeys with ease. We now have the latest 2022 Kia Seltos available for test drive at our South Trail dealership, and here are just a few of the reasons you should book your appointment now.
The Seltos may be a subcompact in size, but the design gives this SUV plenty of road presence and personality. The large front grille and hood combine with the high ride height to give the confidence of an SUV, while the sleek hatchback-style rear gives the Seltos a nimble agility that's perfect for daily city duties.
The standard 2022 Seltos comes equipped with a 2.0L gas engine making 146 horsepower and 132lb-ft of torque, providing a perfect balance of output and economy for everyday driving. The output is passed through a continuously variable transmission (CVT) to front-wheel drive for smooth and highly controlled handling.
Moving up the power scale, an optional 1.6L turbo engine cranks up the horsepower to 175 hp while producing a hefty 195lb-ft of torque, providing ample power for an SUV of this subcompact size. To handle the extra performance, the transmission is upgraded to a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic design, and there's also the option of all-wheel drive for those who regularly need to cope with challenging conditions.
Despite its diminutive size, the interior of the 2022 Seltos provides enough space to sit up to five adults in genuine comfort, along with a useful amount of cargo space behind. The cabin is fitted out with the kind of upscale materials you'd expect on a much more costly car, while the traditional sense of quirky Kia fun is provided by optional ambient lighting that pulses in time with a powerful eight-speaker sound system.
The infotainment provision is equally impressive, with an 8" touchscreen display at the entry level upgraded to a huge 10.3" version on every other trim. Every model boasts smartphone integration through Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth, with other options including advanced navigation, wireless charging, and a 7" colour digital instrument cluster.
Kia models are traditionally supplied with a class-leading array of safety tech, and the Seltos is no exception to the rule. A generous suite of features is provided as standard and topped up with optional extras, with key highlights including:
- Automatic emergency braking.
- Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts.
- Lane departure warnings and automatic lane centring assistance.
- Adaptive cruise control with advanced cyclist detection system.
