Interested in a Kia Seltos?
    Let us help you take the next step

    The Kia Seltos enters 2024 unchanged apart from minor price increases.

    All models see an increase of $280 in the list price, or $300 in the drive-away price, with Kia citing “economic reasons” as the reason for the adjustments.

    This is a considerably smaller increase than the one applied last year when the Seltos received a mid-life update, when drive-away pricing climbed by up to $2900.

    The mid-life update brought tweaked styling inside and out, a more powerful turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine, and more safety equipment.

    Kia sold 10,473 Seltos crossovers in Australia in 2023, which among small SUVs saw it outsold only by the related Hyundai Kona (11,183 sales), as well as the GWM Haval Jolion (11,252), Mazda CX-30 (13,115) and the dominant MG ZS (29,258).
