    In addition, the 2024 Kia Seltos comes with Normal, Smart, and Sport drive modes that each use specific settings for powertrain, drivetrain, and steering mapping to provide the desired driving experience.

    The available active on-demand all-wheel drive (AWD) system allows the sport utility vehicle (SUV) to boast all-weather capabilities and enhanced driving performance.

    Other features offered by the refreshed model include a larger tiger nose grille, new rigid shapes on the front bumper, vertical-shaped fog lights, and new geometric wheel designs. Furthermore, the US-spec 2024 Kia Seltos gets new hues in the form of Pluton Blue, Fusion Black, and Valais Green.

    “Our stable of capable SUVs is stronger than ever, and despite being the smallest of the bunch, the Seltos has been a mighty performer since its introduction. Loaded with standout style, some of the latest technology, advanced driver assistance systems, and enthusiastic performance, the 2024 Seltos serves as the perfect gateway into our bigger and more capable SUVs when the consumer is ready to step up,” said Kia America Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Executive Vice President (EVP) Steven Center.
