What Are the Upgrades in the 2024 Kia Seltos?


The 2024 Kia Seltos is a subcompact SUV that provides drivers in the Corinth, Texas, area with the perfect blend of functionality and style. Its sleek and stylish exterior is paired with a polished and convenient interior, making it the ideal all-around SUV for families looking for an SUV that doesn’t compromise design. Whether you’re running errands around town, hitting the road for a family vacation, or looking to drive to work in style, the 2024 Kia Seltos has you covered. 

With a sleek redesign for 2024, there’s no better time to take a closer look at the Seltos than now. Although the Seltos is a relatively new vehicle in the U.S., having just been introduced with the 2021 model year, this refresh breathes new life into an already eye-catching model. With improvements to exterior and interior styling, there’s a lot to investigate with the new 2024 Kia Seltos.

The 2024 Kia Seltos’s exterior comes in various colors, including monotones and four two-tone exterior color schemes that boost its appeal. The 2024 model also sees a refresh to exterior lighting, including reshaped daytime running lights and taillights and a sleek rear light bar that spans the whole width of the vehicle. The front of the vehicle comes with a slightly taller grille, making the newest model the most attention-grabbing Seltos yet.

Joining the lineup of 2024 Kia Seltos is the X-Line trim level, which sets out to appeal to drivers who like their SUVs to have a certain ruggedness. The X-Line features black roof rails, 18-inch gloss-black alloy wheels, a different front grille design, and Gunmetal Gray skid plates. 


The 2024 Kia Seltos has a nice mix of available drivetrain and powertrain options among its five trim levels. The first three trim levels share the same naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that cranks out 146 horsepower. For drivers looking for more power, the top two trim levels, including the all-new rugged X-Line trim, come equipped with a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine producing 195 horsepower. The base engine is paired with Kia’s intelligent variable transmission, while the turbocharged engine has an eight-speed automatic transmission.

All-wheel drive (AWD) comes standard on three of its trim levels, but it’s an available option on all trim levels. The Seltos has exceptional gas mileage, making it an appealing SUV option for drivers looking to save on the gas pump. Highway fuel economy reaches 34 mpg on front-wheel-drive (FWD) models equipped with the base engine. The AWD versions paired with the turbocharged engine get 27 mpg. 

Interior Features

Inside the cabin of the 2024 Seltos, you’ll find an abundance of quality materials and a smart design that make driving and riding in the Seltos a pleasurable experience. The display screens are all digital in the Seltos, with an all-new seamless panel stretching across most of the dashboard. This panel contains both the digital display cluster and the infotainment screen. The base model includes a 4.2-inch display cluster and an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, but this gets upgraded to a matching set of 10.25-inch screens in the higher trim levels. 

Seating options include standard cloth, cloth with faux leather trim, and SynTex faux-leather upholstery. Heated front seats are available on many trim levels, adding to your comfort while riding in the Seltos. Inside, you’ll find LED and ambient lighting options, setting the mood for riding in style.

Technology Features

Kias are known for being well-equipped with safety and driver-assistance features. Drivers of the 2024 Seltos are sure to be impressed at the technological features available in this SUV. Standard features across all trim levels include forward collision warning with pedestrian and cyclist detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, a driver-attention monitor, and a rearview camera. Higher trim levels include more sophisticated features such as a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic detection with braking, and a safe exit warning. 

For drivers looking for the most advanced technology features on the market, the top trim level, the SX, includes all the features found in the lower trim levels plus a navigation-based adaptive cruise control system with stop-and-go, front junction-turning detection, highway driving assist, and speed limit assist. No matter which trim level you choose, you can rest easy that Kia’s safety technology will leave you feeling safe and secure when behind the wheel. 

Entertainment and Connectivity

The Seltos base model comes standard with a six-speaker AM/FM stereo, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto compatibility. SiriusXM satellite radio is an option for every trim level up from the base. Audiophiles will love the eight-speaker Bose Premium audio system, which includes pulsating lighted speaker grilles found on the SX trim. Other features that will help you stay connected while on the road include a wireless phone charger, Wi-Fi capabilities, and multiple USB charging ports for front and rear passengers.


The 2024 Kia Seltos packs an abundance of features in a small package. Luckily for drivers in the Corinth area, these features also come with a surprisingly small price tag. Starting MSRPs for the various trim levels are as follows:

  • LX AWD: $24,390.
  • S FWD: $25,090.
  • S AWD: $26,490.
  • EX FWD: $25,790.
  • EX AWD: $27,990.
  • X-Line AWD: $28,690.

With relatively little variance between the pricing of trim levels, you’re free to pick and choose the features that best suit your individual needs, knowing that no matter which trim level you choose, it’ll be within your budget.
