Bursting with character

The 2023 Kia Seltos is a subcompact crossover SUV that shows a small vehicle can make a big impression around Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, Montgomery, and Huntsville if it’s good enough, and the Seltos is more than good enough. It might sound like a revolutionary idea to some, but it’s almost as if Kia had asked shoppers what they wanted in a vehicle and went ahead and built it. The cabin is surprisingly spacious, the engines are superb, the all-important infotainment system is user-friendly, and the latest safety and driver-assist technology is either standard or available.

Going its own way

You’re not going to come across the 2023 Kia Seltos for the first time and mistake it for another vehicle you’re already familiar with, which is quite an achievement as plenty of the exterior styling cues appear to have come from other successful Kia models. The smiling grille flanked by contemporary squinting headlights that nobody gets tired of seeing, the cut-outs, lines, and creases of the body, and substantial rear headlights joined by a silver bar all combine to produce a subcompact crossover that looks good in any light and from any angle.

The 2023 Seltos may only be 172 inches long from one bumper to the other, but you’d never believe that when you’re inside the cabin, as Kia has done a spectacular job of making the absolute most of every inch of available space to create the feel of an amazingly roomy cabin. The front seats are generously wide and comfortable enough for most people, and whoever gets to sit in the back will be delighted with the abundant legroom and the reclining seatback. There’s a generous at 26.6 cu.-ft. of cargo space behind the rear seats that expands to an almost cavernous 62.8 cu.-ft. for this segment, when the rear seats are not required for passengers.

2023 Kia Seltos models and trim levels

An SUV that knows how to be an SUV

2023 Kia Seltos powertrain and performance

It’s increasingly common for our smallest crossovers to forgo AWD altogether, but every 2023 Kia Seltos, apart from the S trim level, is available with that extra capability if you want it. The range begins with the entry-level Seltos LX trim, and after that, the range goes to the exclusively front-drive S, the EX, Nightfall Edition, and the top-of-the-range SX.

The LX, S, and EX 2023 Seltos trim levels come with a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder powerplant with 146 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s an excellent engine for an SUV of this size and in this class, with power going to the front or all four wheels through what Kia calls its Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). If more power is required, you can step up to the Night Edition and SX trim levels, which feature a 1.6-liter turbo-four that develops a more-than-useful 175 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. Instead of the IVT, the turbo-four comes mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT).

Feature-packed and great value

When even the entry-level 2023 Kia Seltos gets 17-inch alloy wheels, it shouldn’t be surprising that the standard specification is impressive. Every Seltos gets standard automatic headlights with high beam assist, remote keyless entry, a complete set of power features, air conditioning, and an excellent 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Many buyers will probably identify the 2023 Kia Sletos EX as the sweet spot in the lineup for outstanding value for money. That’s because it comes with a standard 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, Kia Connect, and SiriusXM satellite radio; a wireless phone charging; automatic climate control; SynTex synthetic leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Every model in the range also comes with Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Following Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Rear-View Monitor, and Driver Attention Warning.
