2022 Kia Seltos adds Nightfall Edition, increases standard equipment

For its sophomore model yr, the Kia Seltos can make its bundle of energetic-protection characteristics standard on all trim degrees — and provides a Nightfall Edition. Pricing for the 2022 Seltos also has been launched, and the setting up determine increases by $500 to $22,490 moreover $1,175 desired destination.

Darkness carries on to drop across the automotive new-automobile sector, and now the Seltos has its individual Nightfall Edition (just like the Telluride and the Sportage and countless many others). The Nightfall Edition will get a black grille and black eighteen-inch wheels as perfectly as “rugged” roof rails and aspect sills. Like the leading-spec SX, the Nightfall Edition is run by the 175-horsepower 1.six-liter turbo paired with AWD. Decreased trims — the LX, S (both equally FWD and AWD), and EX — continue to be run by a 146-horsepower 2.-liter four-cylinder. 

Even the lowliest Seltos now arrives standard with ahead-collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic braking, lane-trying to keep support, lane departure warning, lane pursuing support, a driver-notice watch, and automatic large beams. (The LX previously did not appear with any of these objects.) Blind-place checking and rear cross-website traffic notify, both equally with collision-avoidance support, are standard on the EX and SX as perfectly as the new Nightfall Edition.

On top of that, the more substantial 10.25-inch touchscreen with navigation, previously exceptional to the SX, is now integrated on all Seltos designs help you save for the LX. The S designs also increase automatic local weather management, remote start, and Kia’s UVO connectivity. The SX gains a flat-base steering wheel and a Plum (!) inside option, which sadly we never have a image of.

With the Nightfall Edition successfully replacing the S 1.6T trim stage, there are now two instead than 3 S trim degrees, creating the Seltos lineup a bit significantly less puzzling. Also, the LX and the FWD S are no lengthier the very same price, so there is certainly now a apparent entry-stage edition. The 2022 model rundown is as follows (all pricing inclusive of the $1,175 desired destination fee):

  • LX, $23,665 (+ $500 versus 2021)
  • S FWD $23,865 (+ $700)
  • S AWD $25,365 (+ $600)
  • EX $26,965 (+ $400)
  • Nightfall Edition $27,865 (+ $1,a hundred vs. 2021 S 1.6T)
  • SX, unchanged at $29,165

The much more rational lineup need to be a minor much easier for consumers to navigate. And regardless of whether or not you go in for the Nightfall Edition’s black accents, due to the fact it is really the the very least expensive way to get the turbo engine it could be the decide on of the bunch. Until you definitely need to have the SX’s Plum inside, which we’d absolutely fully grasp.
