Kia PH updates Seltos

Kia Philippines has updated the new Seltos — roughly four years after the nameplate has been introduced in the country.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What are the new Kia Seltos' powertrain options?

    The new Kia Seltos is equipped with either a 1.5-liter naturally-aspirated mill mated to an IVT or a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine paired to a seven-speed DCT.
  • What are the new Kia Seltos' variants?

    The new Kia Seltos is available in three trims, namely 1.5 LX AT, 1.5 EX AT, and 1.4 SX AT.
  • The launch of the Kia Seltos’ latest iteration was made after the Korean automaker revealed the offering at the Los Angeles Auto Show late last year.

    Kia Seltos Launch 1

    Sporting significant upgrades, the spruced-up five-seater sport utility vehicle comes with a more athletic look — designed to make the vehicle more appealing for customers who have an on-the-go lifestyle.

    Kia Seltos Launch 2

    Spearheading the string of improvements are the bolder tiger nose grille design that goes well with the neatly laid-out illumination system (which are either on halogen or LED, depending on the chosen trim). The rear portion of the vehicle highly resembles the aesthetics in the front — with both ends wearing satin-finished skid plates.

    The new Kia Seltos sits on 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 215/60 tires.

    Kia Seltos Launch 3

    Inside, the vehicle is fitted with a multi-function digital display (either 4.2- or 10.25-inch liquid crystal display), an infotainment system (eight- or 10.25-inch touchscreen) that has Android Auto, wireless Apple Carplay, and Bluetooth connectivity mated to a six-speaker set-up, and seats that are covered in cloth or leather.

    In addition, the top-of-the-line variation comes with wireless charging dock and push-start system as well as leather trimmings on the tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel and gear-shift levers.

    Kia Seltos Launch 5

    Both the mid-grade and crème dela crème versions get amenities like the electronic parking brake system, and controls for cruise control, audio, and Bluetooth hands-free system on the steering wheel.

    The new Kia Seltos comes in two powertrain options: the 1.5-liter, in-line four-cylinder, double overhead cam Smartstream engine mated to an intelligent variable transmission (for the base trim); and the 1.4-liter turbocharged mill matched to a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox.

    Kia Seltos Launch 4

    Outfitted in the new Kia Seltos’ top-tier option are the numerous advanced features such as the smart cruise control with stop-and-go feature, lane keep assist, lane follow assist, forward collision avoidance assist — among others.

    Just like other Kia models, the new Seltos is packaged with a five-year or 160,000-kilometer warranty and 24/7 roadside assistance.

    Available in Snow White Pearl, Gravity Gray, Pluton Blue, and Snow White Pearl with Black roof, the new Kia Seltos is offered at the following prices:

    • 1.5 LX AT: P1.198 million
    • 1.5 EX AT:P1.288 million
    • 1.4 SX AT: P1.688 million
