4000 miles since new.

4000 miles since new. Mileage in the mid 30,s. Handles and rides very competently. Love the Interior, great materials. Will keep for many years in retirement.

Fun, sporty car for a minivan mom

I love my cute little Seltos! As a minivan mom of 19 years, it's been fun to switch it up. It has a sporty look yet is still practical enough to let my teenagers drive it. A couple things I wish the Seltos had that my basic minivan had (and probably available in other models): The driver side window doesn't roll up all the way...

2024 Kia Seltos review: Our expert's take

By Brian Normile

The verdict: The 2024 Kia Seltos improves upon an already winning formula by pairing its available turbocharged engine with a smoother, more traditional automatic transmission in place of the old dual-clutch automatic, while continuing to offer an impressive mix of useful features and high-quality materials; unfortunately, some modern conveniences are still conspicuously absent.

Versus the competition: Already the benchmark in a growing segment of small, affordable SUVs, the 2024 Seltos continues to lead the way — it won our latest comparison in its class — but its performance, price and fuel efficiency might have it facing off with larger SUVs, too.

The Kia Seltos has been a favorite of ours since its debut as a 2021 model. For 2024, it gets revised exterior styling, a new X-Line trim level with a more rugged appearance, and available dual 10.25-inch displays in most trims. Its available turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine also gets a healthy 20-horsepower boost, for a total of 195 hp, and now pairs with a traditional eight-speed automatic transmission instead of the previous dual-clutch automatic.
