The Kia Seltos for the US market will now come with an updated Gamma 1.6-litre turbocharged engine which produces 195 hp. This is a 20 hp improvement over the previous model. The engine comes paired to an eight-speed automatic gearbox unit and also comes with all-wheel drive.

On the inside, the 10.25-inch infotainment screen has received an update while the existing 10.25-inch driver display has been carried forward. The HVAC control design has been redone and there are more charging ports now all around the cabin.

The ADAS feature list too has been expanded and the Seltos now gets Driver Attention Warning, High Beam Assist, Lane Follow Assist and Rear View Monitor as standard.

Kia is expected to reveal pricing for the updated Seltos by the turn of the calendar year. The updated Seltos could also possibly make its way to India at some point in 2023 although Kia India has not officially made any such plans know. Considering how Seltos managed to establish the brand here when it first came calling in 2019, a launch could be around the corner.
