The LX is the base-level trim for the 2022 Seltos, but there’s little that’s basic about it. The LX comes standard with a 146 horsepower four-cylinder engine that provides just the right amount of oomph. Its continuously variable automatic transmission promises to keep your ride smooth, and its front-wheel-drive format delivers the best fuel efficiency of the trim offerings. The LX gets an impressive 36 mpg on the highway and about 29 mpg driving in the city. Many exciting safety features, like emergency automatic braking, lane-departure warnings, and rear-view camera, come standard on the LX.

One difference between the LX and some of the other trim offerings is the infotainment system. The LX’s system is 8 inches, smaller than the other trims’ screens. Still, the system offers lots of useful features and is extremely user friendly. Experience clear menus and seamless connectivity to your devices. The back seat offers 60/40 split-folding to customize your cargo room and get the most from your space.

The S

The S offers many of the same exciting safety features and capabilities as the LX. It has the same 146 horsepower engine, but one difference that sets it apart is its larger infotainment system. Drivers can enjoy an additional 2 inches of screen with the S’s 10.25-inch infotainment system. Conveniently charge your devices using the vehicle’s standard two USB ports and power outlet. Rear passengers won’t have to pass their phone up front. Instead, they can use the rear seat’s charger. Rear air vents promise to further optimize rear passenger comfort.

Some stylish interior inclusions help to further elevate the appearance of the Seltos S. With upgraded trim, a leather-wrapped wheel and shifter, heated outside mirrors, and interior LED lighting, the Seltos provides a very elevated driving experience. Opt for heated seats up front for maximum comfort and style. Also available is an all-wheel-drive option that improves your ability to take your Seltos anywhere safely.

The EX

The EX is the third and final trim level to come standard with the 146 horsepower, four-cylinder engine. The EX delivers the full luxury experience. Premier features like an automatic sun roof, a push-start engine, and high-tech wireless phone charging. Synthetic leather seats add sophistication and class, and the standard all-wheel drive promises ultimate confidence on the road. Even with all these added features and options, the EX still represents an incredible value.

Experience all the great safety features that come standard with more base-line models of the SUV, but get several more, too. Included in the EX trim is a rear cross traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring. These features can help you stay safe on the road and avoid an undesirable collision. Also included in the EX is the larger, 10.25-inch infotainment system with different charge ports for all your devices. The front seat also gets an upgrade in the EX, allowing drivers to use the power adjuster to customize their seat position automatically.

Nightfall Edition

The next highest trim offering is the Seltos Nightfall Edition. What makes the Nightfall Edition successful as a statement piece is its interior and exterior black trim. The engine also gets an upgrade in the Nightfall for increased horsepower. Opt for the turbocharged 175 horsepower engine for even more satisfying power on the road.

Standard all-wheel-drive and a seven-speed automatic transmission ensure the smoothest ride. In addition to the SUV’s spacious interior, you can pack even more using the Nightfall’s all-black roof rack. Also black on the vehicle are the SUV’s 18-inch matte black wheels and front grille frame.

The SX Turbo

The ultimate Seltos trim level, the SX Turbo, is packed full of great features and options. Still a great value, the Turbo truly sets itself apart from other SUVs in its class. Every great thing about the previous models, including the synthetic leather seats, multiple charge ports, an optional sun roof, and 10.25-inch infotainment system are available in the SX Turbo. Also standard is the higher power, 175 horsepower engine. The desirable seven-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive further help to make this trim-level shine.

Take sound to the next level with an eight-speaker Bose sound system. A digital gauge cluster is both visually appealing and useful, providing easy access to all the top functionality in the SUV. Intelligent cruise control that adjusts your speed if vehicles in front of you are traveling slower than your set speed is also standard on the SX Turbo. Feel extra sporty with a unique steering wheel shape that features an ergonomic flat bottom.

We know there are a lot of options to choose from in the 2022 Kia Seltos, and truly you can’t go wrong. For those wanting more engine power, opt for the higher end of the range options, like the Night Hawk or the SX Turbo. Those wanting extra connectivity can find it in the EX trim and higher. Extra style exists with the S, where passenger comfort and useful interior features dominate. For the best gas mileage, choose a front-wheel-drive option like the LX trim.
