  • Pricing is now available for the updated 2024 Kia Seltos, with the base LX trim starting at $25,715.
    • Expectedly, this is more expensive than the outgoing 2023 models by around $1,000.
  • The SX model tops out the range, commanding at least $31,315 before any extra-cost options.
  • Two powertrains are available: A 147-horsepower, naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder on LX, S and EX models or a 195-horsepower, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder on X-Line and SX trims.
  • The 2024 Kia Seltos gets refreshed styling, both inside and out.
  • Kia’s configurator for the updated Seltos is up and running right now.

The Seltos fills an important gap in the brand’s lineup, and this model year sees a few noteworthy changes.

After announcing a host of changes to its small crossover last November, Kia revealed formal pricing for the 2024 Seltos through its Build & Price page Tuesday. As is the way with mid-cycle refreshes, the updated Seltos is over $1,000 more expensive than the outgoing model, with the base LX starting at $25,715 including Kia’s $1,325 destination charge.

Pricing heads northward from there, of course, with the mid-range S model starting off $500 higher. The Seltos EX starts at $27,115, and is the most luxurious model you’ll get with the base 147-horsepower, 2.0-liter engine.

There is a bit of weirdness in the configurator, as Kia lists the X-Line as a mid-range model despite it being more expensive than the EX. The $30,015 X-Line upgrades the powertrain to a 195-horsepower 1.6-liter unit, as well as a 8-speed automatic transmission in place of a CVT (or ‘IVT’, as Kia calls it). This year’s 1.6-liter mill puts out 20 more horsepower than the older Seltos.

All-wheel drive comes standard on the LX, X-Line and SX trims.

However, it strangely does not come standard on the EX or the S (another reason for the pricing gaps). If you want AWD on either of those two, you’ll have to fork out $1,500 on the S or $2,000 on the EX.

Topping out the range is the $30,015 SX trim. Adding in an extra-cost color, the $1,200 sunroof package or accessories will naturally raise the bottom-line price, but the SX is the only model in the 2024 Seltos lineup that starts over $30,000, no matter what.

All 2024 models see the same exterior styling updates, including a new grille and lighting features. Inside, there’s a new infotainment setup with a digital gauge cluster and display under a single bezel stretching across most of the dash. The base LX gets a more basic unit with a 4.2-inch instrument display in front of the driver and an 8-inch touchscreen. S and higher models get dual 10.25-inch displays for both the instrument panel and the infotainment screen.
