The Kia Seltos 2022 offers essentially the same equipment set as its predecessor.

However, the manufacturer has made some adjustments to the list of onboard equipment, while at the same time slightly changing the appearance and interior of the crossover in a number of modifications.

As before, this competitor to the Hyundai Creta and Geely Atlas in the Russian market is offered with three engines: «atmospheric» of 1.6 and 2 liters and a turbocharged 1.6 liter.

A switchable all-wheel drive transmission is optionally available with the Korean model. Prices for Seltos in Russia start at around 1.3 million rubles.

For this money the company offers relatively «poor» equipment, but for extra money the buyer gets a premium stereo system, electric sunroof, leather seats and many other comfortable options and safety systems.

Technical characteristics

In a number of ways, the 2022 Kia Seltos is a smaller copy of the Sportage.

At the same time, the «younger» crossover received a completely new body, thanks to which, as the official photos show, it does not resemble the «older» in any way.

But the complete set of both cars quite strongly resemble each other, despite the fact that the prices for Korean models are set quite different.

Also the similarities between the crossovers can be traced in both design and technical characteristics.

By default, McPherson struts and torsion bar form the basis of Seltos. But the all-wheel drive versions, together with electronically controlled multidisc clutch, have lever-spring suspension.

Transmission for Seltos is also borrowed from Sportage. But the first model is smaller than the second.

The length of Seltos is 4370 mm, width — 18000 mm, height — 1615 mm. Wheelbase size reaches 2630 mm, and ground clearance — 185-190 mm, depending on the modification.

Standard Seltos in Russia is equipped with 1.6-liter non-inflated engine.

It develops up to 123 hp and 150 N*m of torque. In all-wheel drive versions both parameters are respectively reduced by 2 hp and 2 N*m.

In the first case, the crossover is equipped with a six-speed «manual», in the second — a six-speed «automatic». The average fuel consumption of this variant of the Korean model is 6.9 liters, and acceleration to 100 km/h takes 12.2 seconds.

In more expensive modifications, there is a second supercharged unit with a capacity of 2 liters. Its power output is 149 hp and torque is 180 N*m, regardless of the type of transmission.

It comes with a stepless variator, together with which the unit consumes an average of 6.8 liters of gasoline and provides acceleration to 100 km/h in 9.6 seconds.

The top versions of the Korean model has a turbocharged 1.6 liter engine, producing up to 177 hp of useful power and 265 N*m of torque.

It is completed only with a «robot» with 7 speeds and a full drive. Seltos in this version consumes up to 7.6 liters of fuel on average and accelerates to 100 km/h in 8.4 seconds.

Stylistically, the updated Seltos does not differ from its predecessor.

Crossover is still equipped with narrowed headlights, divided into several segments and resting on the branded grille.

In front, the crossover has a bumper with a large air intake, which turns into deep vents that contain LED fog lights.

The sporty stern of the Seltos is complemented by a developed antifender, which in some modifications is equipped with a brake light.

The large rear lights are combined with each other due to the metal strip. Below it, there are cutouts for additional brake lights.

In the rear bumper, a decorative metal insert is built in, which frames the outlets of the exhaust system spigots.

The interior of the new Seltos is designed in the branded style for budget models Kia.

But in top versions there are decorative inserts, typical for premium cars.

One of the features of Seltos is unique for Kia climate control unit with matte surface. Also the crossover is distinguished by the presence of a large touchscreen, placed above the central console.

In addition, the novelty provides comfortable seating for passengers in the second row, despite its relatively compact size.
