The new 2022 Kia Seltos models have just rolled in, brandishing an ensemble of eye-catching features. In this review, we'll take a look at these novel mid-compact SUVs models and their prices.
All five 2022 Kia Seltos models have similar hp ranges, fuel economy, and price, yet each build brandishes unique features. The main outlier is the top-notch SX Turbo. Let's talk about the details!
This model has 146 hp and uses 16" wheels. With 8.2 L/100km for highways and 7.1 L/100km for cities, the LX FWD lies at the lower end of fuel economy efficiency within these models.
Despite its low price of $25,490, the LX FWD does include crucial safety features like the Blindspot Warning System and the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. It also provides other practical features such as Heated Front Seats plus Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
For $27,490, the LX Seltos model rolls on 17" alloy wheels (AWD) and pulls with 146 hp. It has an improved fuel economy rate of 8.8 L/100km for highways and 7.6 L/100km for cities.Some of these basic characteristics are similar to the two EX models, but these also come with additional features.
The EX model also has 146 hp, 17" wheels, and 8.8 - 7.6 L/100km fuel economy.
Style and ease distinguish this model from the others: a sleek sunroof, Black Sofino leather interiors, plus the Smart Key & Push Button Start features.
You can also drive confidently, knowing the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and Lane Follow Assist are both keeping you safe. More safety and more style for $30,090.
In line with its non-Premium counterpart, this Seltos model keeps the same hp capacity, fuel economy range, wheel size, and stylish features.
Yet, the "premium" aspect comes in with a series of key perks. The 10.25" multimedia interface with built-in navigation, the wireless cellphone charger, and the UVO Intelligence integrate a seamless, hassle-free driving experience. Its $33,090 price also includes LED headlights and fog lights.
The SX Turbo stands out from the rest of the 2022 Kia Seltos models, both in specs and features. Characterized by its impressive 175 hp, the SX Turbo rolls on 18" wheels and has an improved fuel economy rate of 9.4 L/100km on highways and 7.9 for cities.
This model's namesake feature is the 1.6L Turbo-GDI Engine. Starting at $35,090, the Seltos SX Turbo also boasts a 7-Speed Auto Dual Clutch Transmission, a Head's Up Display, and a Bose Premium Sound System.
These models have similar essential specs but vary greatly on security and comfort features. So, keep that in mind when deciding on which Seltos model to buy. You might consider going for the FWD model to limit your budget, but we recommend buying the LX model instead. You’ll get a lot of extra features for that $2,000 difference. On the other hand, if you have money to spend, the Kia Seltos SX Turbo is the way to go. With its Bose Sound System and Heads Up Display, it’s, no doubt, the most equipped option.
