The New Features in The 2022 Models
The Kia Selto 2022 models come with an available Advanced Forward Collision-Avoidance Assistance system. The system detects a potential collision and warns you about it with an audible alert. It then automatically applies the brakes preventing the crash or reducing the impact on the car after the crash. The Seltos also has a lane-keeping assistant, and its headlamps are automatic. Some models also have a sunroof, a smart key, a push start button, and seats fitted with SOFINO leather. The LX FWD and LX have a Blind-Spot Warning System and a Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, helping you avoid unnecessary collisions. The front seats in the Selto models have heating, giving you and your passenger’s maximum comfort, with the EX Premium and SX turbo having air-cooled front seats.
Features & Trim Options
The Kia Selto models have an all-wheel-drive system providing you with better traction and handling in all driving conditions. With the Drive Mode select, you can pick your preferred driving style. The EX premium and SX turbo also have the UVO intelligence remote service that allows you to connect to support services enabling you to remain secure, comfortable, and confident every time you drive your Kia. The Seltos has a standard 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that makes 146 horsepower and a 175-horsepower 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The base engine in these vehicles is mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), while the turbo has a seven-speed automatic. The turbo engine comes with a standard all-wheel drive, but it is optional when using the non-turbo base engine. Therefore, the Selto will offer you a firm and smooth ride with sharp handling, making it more comfortable than other SUVs. The Selto models come with a standard driver assistance technology; however, some features such as cyclist detection and adaptive cruise control are only available to the SX trim. All the Selto models except the LX come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing you to access your phone as you drive safely. The infotainment display in all Selto models allows for optional navigation and will enable you to split-screen, allowing you to view the map and change the radio stations. Depending on the model, the Seltos has a wireless charging pad for your smartphone and up to three USB ports. A Bose audio system with eight speakers is also an optional feature.
The Fuel Economy, Interior Comfort, & Cargo
With the standard 2.0-litre engine, you can expect a fuel economy rating of 8.8 L/100 km in the city and 7.6 L/100 km on the highway, letting you drive longer before visiting the gas station. Although the 1.6-litre engine produces even more power, it remains fuel-efficient by achieving a fuel consumption rating of 9.4 L/100 km in the city and 7.9 L/100 km on the highway. The inside of the Seltos are more versatile and are spacious for people and cargo. The SX model interior has ambient lighting, and you can set it to pulse with the car’s audio system. The vehicles have a dual-level cargo floor that helps increase the flexibility of the cargo you intend to carry.
