2024 kia seltos

Select a year

By Drew Dorian


With a stylish look, a spacious cabin, and a fun-to-drive edge, the 2024 Seltos earns its place in Kia’s lineup, which is full of other vehicles with similar values. The Seltos is a bit of an in-betweener model, slotting in between the smaller Soul and the larger Sportage, but its not-quite-subcompact size makes room for more cargo than rivals such as the Hyundai Kona and the Nissan Kicks. A styling refresh for 2024 makes the Seltos even more attractive than before and, although we don’t have all the details yet, we can see that its interior will be updated with better infotainment technology too. Kia will release more information closer to the 2024 model’s on-sale date, which will probably be sometime in 2023.

What's New for 2024?

The Seltos is expected to receive a refresh for its exterior and interior styling for 2024. The photos here show the Korean-market model, but we expect to see the same changes made to the Seltos for North America. A restyled grille and updated lighting elements elevate the SUV’s exterior along with new wheel designs and a rear light bar that connects the taillamps. The cabin receives an updated infotainment panel with two large screens and the current model’s more traditional shift lever appears to have been replaced with a rotary controller. We haven’t heard anything yet about the Seltos’s powertrains, but we’ll update this story when we find out more information.

    Despite the styling overhaul, the Seltos will likely remain a fairly affordable option. We expect trim levels to mirror that of the 2023 model, but with slightly higher prices and possibly a reshuffling of options. It is unknown yet whether or not all-wheel drive will remain a standard feature.

      Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

      Inside, the Seltos offers noticeably more space for people and cargo than the Hyundai Kona. The materials used throughout the cabin are well chosen and refined enough to seem right at home in the showroom next to the brand's excellent Telluride SUV. Interior ambient lighting is standard on the upscale SX model and can be set to pulse along with the music like the system Kia offers in the smaller Soul SUV. During our test drive of the pre-facelift model, the cargo area easily swallowed our suitcases, backpacks, and photo bag; in our testing, we fit eight carry-on suitcases in the cargo hold and 20 with the rear seats folded. We expect the Seltos’s cargo carrying capability to be unchanged for the 2024 model year.

        Infotainment and Connectivity

        From photos we can see that the Seltos’s infotainment setup has drastically changed for 2024, with a new seamless panel stretching two thirds of the dashboard serving as both a digital gauge display and infotainment touchscreen. This arrangement is similar to the offerings of other modern Kia models and we expect to see Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, and an on-board wi-fi hotspot.

          Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

          Kia's warranty is the best in the industry, and the company continues to offer the 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain coverage on its models. The only other rivals that can match it are SUVs from sister company Hyundai.

          • Limited warranty covers 5 years or 60,000 miles
          • Powertrain warranty covers 10 years or 100,000 miles
          • No complimentary scheduled maintenance
