Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2022 Kia Seltos: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - October 21, 2020

Model Preview

The Kia Seltos debuted as the brand’s new subcompact crossover in 2021. With it still so fresh, the 2022 Kia Seltos is expected to hit showrooms as a carryover model.

The 2021 Seltos hit showrooms with a striking look that avoided going too over the top. This design included a bold grille with a mesh insert, wide wraparound headlights, Strong body lines and ridges, wraparound taillights with a connecting chrome strip, a contrasting roof, rugged body cladding, and relatively upright C-pillars. As a carryover model, we expect the 2022 Seltos to have all the same design cues.

Despite its bolder outward appearance, the current Kia Seltos arrived with the typical toned-down Kia interior. It boasts a clean dash with a dash-top touchscreen infotainment system, wide HVAC vents, a well-organized center stack, and light gloss-black accents. We expect this design to remain the same in the 2021 Kia Seltos too.


Kia Seltos

Under its hood, the current Kia Seltos comes standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 146 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels or all four wheels. Optionally, buyers can get a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 175 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque that mates with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive. We expect the 2022 Seltos to carry the same powertrain options.

As for safety, the current Seltos has automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, lane-follow assist, high-beam assist, and more. Unfortunately, these safety features are standard only on S and higher trims. The base LX has no advanced safety tech. The Seltos did well in IIHS crash tests, though, scoring “Good” ratings in all crash-safety tests. Where it fell short was the “Poor” rating its headlights received. We expect these ratings and features to remain the same in the 2022 Kia Seltos.

Pricing & Release Date

There’s no official on-sale date for the 2022 Kia Seltos, but we expect it to arrive in early 2021.

Pricing for the 2022 Kia Seltos isn’t available either, but we expect only inflation-based pricing changes relative to the current Seltos’ $23,110 to $29,010 MSRP range.

This subcompact crossover will compete with the Hyundai Kona, Jeep Renegade, and Subaru Crosstrek.
