Perfect for its intended environment

The exterior styling of the 2022 Kia Seltos is very modern and follows a similar design philosophy to other recent Kia models. It’s extremely contemporary without being too futuristic, and that means it will still look good in the years to come but it won’t put anyone off buying one right now by being too polarizing. The Seltos is the perfect size for the town and city where it’s most likely to be found, but one area where the Kia departs from current subcompact crossover SUV convention is the wide availability of all-wheel-drive. At a time when many rivals have abandoned such extra capability altogether, Kia’s combination of style, value for money, and an industry-leading warranty package make it a tough act to beat on many levels.

Five superb trim levels

Buyers currently have five different trim levels to choose from in the 2022 Kia Seltos lineup and it’s easy to make a case for every one of them. At the entry-level, the Seltos LX comes with an amazingly affordable starting price but it’s hard to see where any corners have been cut to get to such an attractive price. Next up is the Seltos S which adds several extra features for only a small uplift in price, and then we have the EX, Nightfall Edition, and finally the top-of-the-range SX Turbo. It’s hard to find fault with any of the five trim levels, especially at the price, including the range-topping SX Turbo that really does look like something of a bargain for what you get standard.

Powertrain and performance

2022 Kia Seltos powertrains and performance

Once again, while many of its rivals adopt a take-it or leave-it attitude to powertrains in the small SUVs, Kia offers buyers a choice of two different engines for the 2022 Seltos. The standard powerplant for LX, S, and EX versions of the Seltos is a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit that puts out a very respectable 146 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque that goes to the front or all four wheels through Kia’s Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT).

Nightfall and SX Turbo variants come standard with a more potent powerplant which is a 1.6-liter turbo-four which then provides the Seltos with 175 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. As well as being exclusively all-wheel-drive, Nightfall and SX Turbo versions of the subcompact Kia also get upgraded to a 7-speed Quick-Shift DCT transmission.

Features and equipment

Entry-level LX versions of the 2022 Kia Seltos come with a good list of standard equipment, but most buyers will probably start looking at the S and higher as the uplift in price is amazingly small. S models add to the LX specification with the likes of roof rails, LED daytime running lights and rear taillights, front fog lights, but it’s the infotainment upgrade that more than justifies the price of moving up from the LX to the S trim. While the base model already comes with an 8.0-inch touchscreen system that’s Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible, S models and higher get upgraded to a 10.25-inch touchscreen system that even includes remote connectivity, voice-command navigation and SiriusXM satellite radio.
