Car buyers anxiously awaited the arrival of the country’s first batch of Kia Seltos SX units.

Measuring 4,385-mm long, 1,800-mm wide, and 1,635-mm tall, the Kia Seltos SX fits the daily needs of the busy urbanite. With a wheelbase of 2,630 mm, it has the essential interior space for a full complement of five passengers and their accompanying cargo.
A new, more prominent grille design with added accents, revised front and rear bumpers with updated turn signals, LED fog lamps, functional roof rails, satin-finish belt trims, chrome trims, and connected star-map signature LED taillamps distinguish the new Kia Seltos SX from earlier models. A fresh set of 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels, finished in semi-gloss black, also makes the new Kia Seltos in SX trim a standout on the road.
Inside, the vehicle also brings a host of unique class-leading details and features ideal for the modern crossover market. A panoramic 10.25-inch instrument panel integrated with a 10.25-inch infotainment display, which sports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, emphasizes the futuristic appeal of the new Kia Seltos SX. It also has a unique Sound Mood Lamp. Additional comfort and convenience features in the new Kia Seltos SX include a new panoramic sunroof, dual zone automatic air conditioning, front seat cooling, electronic parking brakes, ambient lighting, keyless entry, and wireless mobile charging.

Power and efficiency in one
What sets the 2024 Kia Seltos SX apart is its all-new powertrain. A new 1.4-liter four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline direct injection engine with a total power output of 140 PS and 242 N-m of torque that surges as early as 1,500 rpm ensures top-notch performance, responsiveness, and fuel efficiency for the new Kia Seltos SX.
