    About the Seltos

    The Seltos is Kia's competitor to big sellers such as the Mitsubishi ASX and Nissan Qashqai in the Small SUV sales race.

    The Seltos pairs an edgy and well-proportioned design with an unusually large amount of cabin space for the class, and in higher spec levels a massive 10-inch touchscreen and party tricks like pulsing cabin LEDs. 

    There are base models of the Kia Seltos with a 2.0-litre engine and CVT, plus front-wheel drive, or 1.6-litre turbo models with a dual-clutch automatic transmission and on-demand all-wheel drive, plus fairly agile dynamics. 

    The Seltos is far less vanilla than many of its rivals.

    Interior

    Photos and Images of the Kia Seltos Interior

    The interior of the Seltos is rather large for its category, it tends to provide a little more room than rivals like the Hyundai Kona, without compromising on what is the current and soon be replaced Kia Sportage.

    It’s a good looking interior, especially in the top-spec variants.

    Seltos Colours

    What colours are available for the Kia Seltos?

    There are nine different colour combinations you can order the Kia Seltos in. Two-tone colour combinations include Starbright Yellow with a cherry black roof and Clear white and Cherry black roof.

    Seltos Safety Rating

    ANCAP Safety Rating Australia

    When the Kia Seltos was tested by ANCAP upon its release, it received a rating of FIVE stars.

    All models received an adult occupant protection score of 85 per cent, child occupant protection score of 83 per cent, vulnerable road user protection score of 61 per cent and a safety assist score of 70 per cent.

    All 2021 Kia Seltos models come standard with lane-keeping assist, anti-lock brakes, front, front side and curtain airbags and autonomous emergency braking with forward-collision warning.

    Up-spec models and those with the Safety Pack add a more advanced autonomous emergency braking with cyclist detection, while the Sport Plus and GT-Line include blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. We feel these features should be standard, otherwise we highly recommend optioning the safety pack.

    Should you buy the Seltos

    Is this the right car for you? Our experts buy or not guide.

    The Kia Seltos is our favourite small SUV, it presents a very clean package with more room than one might expect from a small SUV. It comes feature packed with a modern interior and all the latest technological gadgets one could ask for in the price point.

    What other cars should you look at?

    The Seltos should be compared to the Mitsubishi ASX, Toyota CH-R, Hyundai Kona, Nissan Juke, Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-30, Skoda Kamiq and MG ZS.
