Overview

Kia created quite a buzz in the subcompact crossover segment by launching its brand-new 2020 Seltos in the Philippines. This new entrant was quick enough to woo in customers with its stylish, modern looks, and comfortable interior. It might have only a single engine option but it compensates that by providing a comfortable drive quality and various colour options. The 2020 Kia Seltos has three variants - LX, EX, and SX - that start at a price of Php 1.1 million.

Interior & Features

Thanks to the large dimensions, the Seltos has a good amount of interior space. Yes, it is a 5-seater but the point here is that it accommodates all the 5 occupants easily and comfortably. And it can also take in their luggage as it has 498-litres of boot space.

We would also like to point out that the fit and finish inside the Seltos is quite commendable. The 3-spoke steering wheel feels premium to hold and comes with various mounted controls. Also, the all-black interior theme adds the right amount of sportiness that a customer would demand.

For infotainment, Kia offers a large 8-in floating-type touch screen that sits in the middle of the dashboard. It has a decent resolution and supports Bluetooth, USB, and AUX along with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. You can also control the system via the buttons and knobs which is a good thing as using a touchscreen while driving could be a challenging task. 

Some of the other interior features are- smart entry and push start button, automatic climate control, heads-up display, 6-speaker setup with Bose audio system, 60:40-split rear seats with reclining backs, and ambient lighting with “party mode”.

Exterior

We can confidently say that the new 2020 Kia Seltos is one of the best looking cars in its segment. That’s because Kia has really done a great job in designing the exterior of the Seltos and once you will have a look at it, you too will agree with us.

The Seltos gains your attention irrespective of the angle you are looking it from. At the front, it has its sleek LED headlights along with LED daytime running lights and vertically stacked LED fog lamps to have your gaze. Its Tiger Nose grille is also one of the key styling features. 

From the sides, its crystal-cut alloy wheels, roof rails, and body-cladding take care of the car’s appearance. Moving to the rear, we have the LED tail lights, faux exhaust outlets, and prominent diffuser to make you stop and have a second look.

Ride & Handling

With 147 horses and 179 Newton-metres at the disposal, the Seltos kind of drives confidently. It covers up distances quickly and you will hit the tonne in no time. Kia has also provided five different drive modes - Smart, Eco, Comfort, Sport, and Custom - that can be selected via the drive mode selector knob.

The suspension setup in the Seltos is MacPherson Struts at the front and Torsional Beam at the rear. They soak up the road undulations quite well as well as provide decent handling.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

For the Philippines, the Kia Seltos specs have only a single engine option. It is a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine which produces 147 bhp of max power and 179 Nm of torque. These are some decent figures for a vehicle of this size and dimensions.

The engine is mated to a CVT which Kia calls IVT (Intelligent Variable Transmission) and this is the only transmission option that you will get. It is fast enough to keep with the car’s acceleration but the driving enthusiasts would definitely miss the paddle shifters or manual mode.

Braking & Safety

The Seltos comes with disc brakes on all four wheels which give it a strong braking performance. It also comes with ABS which enhances the braking performance even further. Apart from ABS, the Seltos has the following safety features- rear camera display, rear-view driving function, cruise control, electronic stability control, downhill braking control, hill-start assist control, rear parking distance warning, dual front, side, and curtain airbags.

Verdict

The subcompact crossover segment already has some really great options like Hyundai Kona, Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V, etc., but all of them come at a good price. The 2020 Kia Seltos price starts at PHP 1.1 million which is expensive than cars like Toyota Rush, Ford EcoSport, etc. but provides a decent list of features. And with that looks and style, the Seltos feels like a more premium car than it actually is.

    Alexsander Nov 15, 2019 for KIA Seltos
    An advanced SUV at an affordable cost

    Kia Seltos has been one of my favourite cars since its launch. I am fond of its aggressive yet subtle styling that makes it look different from other cars in its segment. Kia has gone all out in terms of offering features to the Seltos because even the luxury SUVs which are more expensive than the Seltos do not have Read More
