2022 Kia Seltos: Interior Overview


The 2022 Kia Seltos is a compact crossover SUV that features a surprisingly roomy interior in contrast to its small stature. Kia put a lot of thought into creating an interior that’s versatile and comfortable. The 2022 Kia Seltos conveniently meets your needs for comfort and connectedness as you make your way around town and beyond. There’s a lot to like about the Seltos when it comes to carrying cargo, groceries, and the family to their destinations. 

At Huffines Kia Corinth, we’re highlighting the interior of the 2022 Kia Seltos to help you learn more about what you can expect. When you’re ready to see the interior and exterior of the Seltos for yourself, come see us at our dealership in Corinth and take one for a drive. 

Cabin Technology

Technology is a large part of modern cars, and the 2022 Kia Seltos is full of technology at your fingertips. The technology features that come standard on the Seltos include:

  • 8-inch touchscreen display with rear camera.
  • Remote keyless entry and immobilizer.
  • Apple CarPlay.
  • Android Auto.
  • USB port.
  • AM/FM stereo.
  • Six speakers.
  • Auxiliary audio input and USB with external media control.
  • Satellite radio.
  • Hands-free calling.
  • Turn-by-turn navigation.

Available upgrades include:

  • Navigation with 10.25-inch touchscreen.
  • Kia Connect.
  • Rear USB port.
  • Smart key with push button and remote start.
  • Sunroof.
  • Automatic climate control.

The SX Turbo package features technology upgrades including:

  • Digital instrument cluster.
  • Bose premium sound.
  • Electronic parking brake.
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror. 
  • Power front driver’s seat with memory settings.
  • 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
  • Voice-command navigation.
  • Wireless phone charging. 

Cloth and synthetic leather are the only materials available at all trim levels of the Seltos. However, the material that’s used in the Seltos has a quality feeling that’s similar to the cloth interior of the Kia Telluride. One of the more fun options that’s available in the 2022 Kia Seltos consists of interior ambient lighting that can be set to pulse in time with the music. 

The interior of the Seltos primarily uses hard plastic for its surfaces, but Kia has made it a point to create a texture and finish that look and feel premium. All the controls have an interesting texture that invites touch and makes it easy to determine the button or switch controls by feel alone.

Driver and Passenger Seating

The 2022 Kia Seltos can seat up to five adults comfortably, even adults who are 6 feet tall. This is partly due to the fact that the Seltos features a high roofline that adds to the interior volume and partly due to the reclining rear seatbacks. There is plenty of legroom in the front and back of the Seltos.  

Driver and passenger visibility is excellent in all directions, and an available sunroof adds to the feeling of roominess inside the Seltos. Both rear outboard seats feature LATCH connectors for child safety seats. The lower anchors are set deep into the seats, which is a design that earned the Seltos the second-highest rating of Acceptable from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. 

Cargo Space

The 2022 Kia Seltos has a total of 26.6 cubic feet of cargo room with the second-row seats in the upright position and a total of 62.8 cubic feet when the rear seats are down. It’s one of the roomiest cargo spaces in its class, and it features a square configuration for ease of loading. The seatbacks are split so you can leave one up and put one down to modify the amount of cargo space that you need. 

The loading area itself starts below the rear seatbacks, which means that anything stowed in the rear is unlikely to block rearview visibility. A false cargo floor behind the rear seat can be repositioned if needed, and there’s an additional cargo space under the floor.

You’ll appreciate the fact that accessing the cargo space from the hatch is easy. The 2022 Kia Seltos features a low floor and a high roofline with a fully opening hatchback door. This all but eliminates the struggle to lift heavy items into the back of the Seltos and arrange them as you need. 

Conveniences and Comforts

The 2022 Kia Seltos comes with familiar comforts and conveniences that make the driving experience more enjoyable. They also elevate the Seltos to a level beyond a basic vehicle that gets you from point A to point B. Here’s what you can expect to find in the interior of the 2022 Kia Seltos:

  • Cruise control.
  • Electric power steering.
  • Steering wheel-mounted controls for audio and cruise control.
  • Rearview camera.
  • Leather steering wheel. 
  • Front and rear cupholders.
  • Single zone front climate control.
  • Rear ventilation ducts.
  • Turn signal in mirrors.
  • Tilt and telescoping steering wheel.
  • Front and rear door pockets.
  • Heated front seats.
  • 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat.

The 2022 Kia Seltos features a physical gear shift with a button to shift the SUV into gear instead of turning a dial. The gear shift offers a tactile feeling when putting the SUV into gear, further connecting the driver to the vehicle. However, there is a dial for drive mode to the upper left of the gear shift for ease of selection. 

Interior Options

The 2022 Kia Seltos comes with interior options that you can add on as you like for an extra charge. They include:

  • Carpeted floor mats.
  • Cargo mat.
  • Cargo tray.
  • Cargo net.
  • Electrochromatic mirror.
  • Illuminated scuff plate.
  • Carpeted cargo mat with seatback protection.
