The Kia Seltos Sport+ is a small SUV with big aspirations. But can the Kia’s newest SUV cut it in our long-term garage. We asked Andrew Chesterton to put it to the urban family (two adults, one very small corgi) test to find out.
First, let’s get the obvious stuff out of the way first. This is the Kia Seltos Sport+ FWD. That means it gets a 2.0-litre petrol engine delivering 110kW and and 180Nm, with that power fed through a CVT automatic and send, unsurprisingly, the front tyres. It will cost you $33,990 drive away.
The Sport+ is also available as an AWD, with swaps the engine out for a 1.6-litre turbo and the CVT for a seven-speed DCT auto, but that ups the cost to $37,490. If you’re a city-dweller, like me, then I really wouldn’t bother.
Either way, the Sport+ is among the more expensive ways into a Seltos. It sits below only the GT-Line (which is a considerable $42,990 drive-away), and above the Sport Safety Pack ($31,490), the Sport ($30,490), the S with Safety Pack ($27,990) and the entry-level S ($26,990). All those prices are drive-away, too.
