2024 Kia Seltos refresh to be previewed for PH on Nov 30, 2023

We may already be at the tail-end of 2023, but Kia Philippines has a surprise in-store just before we say goodbye to the year that was.

After releasing several teaser images and videos, the 2024 Kia Seltos facelift will be previewed for the Philippine market later this week. In fact, the automaker has announced that the preview event will happen on November 30, 2023.

Official specifications are not yet available for the 2024 Kia Seltos. But based on what international markets get, the refreshed Seltos is available with turbocharged and naturally aspirated engines.

Starting with the former, the crossover could come with a 1.4-liter or a 1.5-liter turbocharged Smartstream inline-four engine. The 1.4L turbo puts out 140 PS with 242 Nm of torque while the 1.5-liter produces 160 PS with 253 Nm of pull. Next are the naturally aspirated four-cylinder engines which come in the form of the 1.5-liter Smartstream MPI and the 1.6-liter Gamma MPI. The former has 115 PS with 144 Nm of torque while the latter makes 123 PS with 151 Nm of torque.

Depending on what powertrain/s Kia Philippines will bring, the 2024 Seltos could be saddled with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT), or a 6-speed automatic. But since the pre-facelift version already has an IVT, we could perhaps get the updated Seltos with the IVT still.

As far as the cabin is concerned, we won't be surprised if the PH-spec Seltos will also get the same futuristic-looking cabin as what other markets get. That means we could expect the refreshed crossover to come with a new rotary-style gear selector, a pair of 10.25-inch screens that serve as the digital instrument cluster & touchscreen infotainment, redesigned HVAC controls, LED ambient lighting, full-leather upholstery, and many more.
