Fun, sporty car for a minivan mom

I love my cute little Seltos! As a minivan mom of 19 years, it's been fun to switch it up. It has a sporty look yet is still practical enough to let my teenagers drive it. A couple things I wish the Seltos had that my basic minivan had (and probably available in other models): The driver side window doesn't roll up all the way...

My Seltos EX is a compact suv that is stylish and has all the features I need. Comfortable and gets good gas mileage for all wheel drive. Got mine for about $27,500 so it is a great value.

2024 Kia Seltos review: Our expert's take

By Brian Normile

The verdict: The 2024 Kia Seltos improves upon an already winning formula by pairing its available turbocharged engine with a smoother, more traditional automatic transmission in place of the old dual-clutch automatic, while continuing to offer an impressive mix of useful features and high-quality materials; unfortunately, some modern conveniences are still conspicuously absent.

Versus the competition: Already the benchmark in a growing segment of small, affordable SUVs, the 2024 Seltos continues to lead the way — it won our latest comparison in its class — but its performance, price and fuel efficiency might have it facing off with larger SUVs, too.

The Kia Seltos has been a favorite of ours since its debut as a 2021 model. For 2024, it gets revised exterior styling, a new X-Line trim level with a more rugged appearance, and available dual 10.25-inch displays in most trims. Its available turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine also gets a healthy 20-horsepower boost, for a total of 195 hp, and now pairs with a traditional eight-speed automatic transmission instead of the previous dual-clutch automatic.
