The Kia Seltos has a bit of a unique name. However, it might not seem that foreign to those who are familiar with Greek mythology. According to Kia, the name Seltos comes from the name Celtos (the C changed to an S to emphasize the sportiness and speed of the vehicle)––the son of Hercules and forefather of the Celtic people.
The name was chosen to invoke the image of a brave, youthful, and spirited vehicle. If you check out a 2023 Kia Seltos here at your local Kia dealer, you'll quickly see just by viewing the exterior design that the compact SUV seems to be directed at the younger generation who are looking for flexible, reliable, and tech-savvy rides that can fit into a variety of constantly changing lifestyles.
The 2023 Kia Seltos is a good-looking SUV that would fit in uptown, downtown, and otherwise. The spirited SUV was created to inspire your daily ride while making your day a little easier with generous cargo space and the latest user-friendly tech. Stop by Sherwood Kia to see the all-new Seltos and become part of the legend.
The 2023 Kia Seltos wasn't just designed to look good. The bold compact SUV has the ability and strength drivers want to make it more than just another pretty face. The Seltos isn't just budget friendly when it comes to the low starting price of $23,695.[a] When it comes to fuel economy, the Seltos delivers up to 8.2 L/100km in the city and 7.1 L/100km on the highway, helping you stay within budget even if you have a daily commute on your hands.
The Seltos was meant for exploring your world, so it was given a great engine to give it all the strength and durability to get up and go when adventure calls. The standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine is charged with 146 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque to make for a nimble and responsive drive, along with the spirit you'd want to elevate your driving experience from ordinary to extraordinary.
The available all-wheel drive system helps give you traction and control over uneven or slick surfaces, making it easier than ever to forge your own path. The all-wheel drive system also includes AWD Lock Mode. With the push of a button, the system is designed to evenly distribute power 50/50 between the front and rear tires for even better traction control in snowy or muddy conditions.
With five trim options available, it's easy to get the perfect balance of form and function from your next Kia. If you're looking to get even more power and performance out of your Seltos and take your drive to the next level, opt for the 1.6L turbocharged engine. The 1.6L comes standard on the SX Turbo Trims.
From the bold, eye-catching looks to the versatile and driver-centred interior, the Seltos is designed to deliver on every level. Beating out competition like the Toyota RAV4 when it comes to passenger volume, the 2023 Seltos offers a spacious cabin with wide windows to let the sun in. The 60/40 split rear seats make it quick and easy to take advantage of the Seltos' impressive cargo space. Load up luggage, job materials, camping gear, and anything else you want to take along.
For added luxury, the compact five-seater Kia SUV comes standard with supportive front and rear reclining seats. The heated and ventilated front seats, plus remote climate control, make it easy to stay comfortable on a cold morning or sweltering afternoon. So no matter where you're sitting, you can stretch out and enjoy the view.
Young drivers not only want a vehicle that will make their day easier but one that will also make their drive safer. The Seltos is created to heighten your drive experience and make it easier than ever to stay safe and connected while on the road.
The available 26 cm infotainment screen is conveniently placed and angled so that it's easy for the driver to navigate. Not only that, but the split screen mode means you can keep your GPS map up while also viewing the home screen. The Heads-Up Display projects useful information from your vehicle's instrument cluster, like fuel levels or speed, in addition to information like GPS directions from your navigation screen. Drivers will never have a problem keeping their eyes on the road when they have the Seltos to guide them.
The Seltos allows drivers to seamlessly connect their compatible smartphones with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. This allows you to use voice commands, plus gain access to your listening library, send and receive calls or texts, or get up-to-the-minute GPS directions, all without taking your hands off the wheel.
Say goodbye to that annoying tangle of cords and chargers with wireless phone charging! It's easier than ever to jump in and place your compatible phone on the convenient charging pad, cord-free. Also available is a 12V power outlet and USB charging ports, so passengers can connect and charge additional phones, tablets, and more from the comfort of their own seats.
The available Kia Connect app makes it possible to access some of your car's features remotely. With conveniences like remote lock or unlock, adjusting cabin temperature, or even using a locating device to find your car in a huge parking lot, the Kia Connect app can help save you time on a busy day. Not only that, but with Kia Connect, drivers can use Voice Assist and Connect Routing to help their day run a little more efficiently.
Compatibility with smart devices like Amazon Alexa and Google Home means you can keep the connection between you and your Kia open with voice commands. Turn on your car's heating, start your car, and more with just the sound of your voice, all from the comfort of your own home.
The available Bose premium high-performance audio system features high-quality speakers that will take your listening experience to all new levels. Whether you're tuning in to listen to your favourite Spotify playlist or you want to finish up that audiobook, listen to the best Kia has to offer with Bose. And when it comes to setting the mood, the ambient lighting feature reacts to vibrations from your speakers, creating a personalized light show to entertain and inspire.
The Seltos uses the latest technology to offer a wide range of driver assist and safety features that inspire confidence every time you get behind the wheel of the 2023 Seltos. The Advanced Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist system detects potential collisions and works to gently apply the brakes to avoid or lessen an impact. Blind-Spot Collision Warning lets drivers know when a vehicle is approaching or riding in their blind spot. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps drivers back out of tight parking spaces and driveways by keeping an eye out for cars approaching from the sides, while Safe Exit Assist gives passengers an extra set of eyes in the back to make exiting the vehicle safe even on busy streets.
