Look: Stocks Of Turbocharged 2024 Kia Seltos SX Have Arrived

Stocks of the top-of-the-line turbocharged 2024 Seltos SX have arrived according to Kia’s exclusive Philippine distributor, AC Motors.

After introducing the new Kia Seltos in entry-level LX and mid-range EX trims last November 30, Kia Philippines also began accepting inquiries about the top-of-the-line SX variant of the latest global crossover. Car buyers anxiously awaited the arrival of the country’s first batch of Kia Seltos SX units.

Now available at showrooms for previewing and release, the 2024 Kia Seltos SX is set to deliver heightened features and excellent value to young progressive crossover buyers.

“We encourage and invite our customers to visit their nearest Kia dealership to see, feel, and experience the new 2024 Kia Seltos,” says Brian Buendia, Chief Operating Officer of Kia Philippines.

“Now that all three variants of the 2024 Kia Seltos are here, our customers can discover which new specifications fit their needs, requirements, and budget. The 2024 Kia Seltos SX brings a refined presence, ease and convenience, enhanced comfort, and extensive safety features ideal for families and individuals who want a vehicle that lets them get the best out of life,” Buendia adds.

Like other 2024 Seltos models, the Seltos SX receives a new, more prominent grille design with added accents, revised front and rear bumpers with updated turn signals, LED fog lamps, functional roof rails, satin-finish belt trims, chrome trims, and connected star-map signature LED taillamps. A fresh set of 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels, finished in semi-gloss black, further makes it a standout.

Inside, the new Kia Seltos SX also brings a host of details and features ideal for the modern crossover market. A panoramic 10.25-inch instrument panel integrated with a 10.25-inch infotainment display, which sports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, emphasizes the futuristic appeal of the new Kia Seltos SX. It also has a unique Sound Mood Lamp.

Additional comfort and convenience features in the new Kia Seltos SX include a new panoramic sunroof, dual zone automatic air conditioning, front seat cooling, electronic parking brakes, ambient lighting, keyless entry, and wireless mobile charging.

A full complement of safety features highlights its position in the nameplate’s lineup. Six SRS airbags, Smart Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go ability, Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Following Assist, Forward Collision Avoidance Assist, High Beam Assist and Parking Distance Warning are exclusive to this variant.

What truly sets the 2024 Kia Seltos SX apart is its all-new powertrain. A new 1.4-liter four-cylinder T-GDI engine with a total power output of 140 horsepower and 242 Nm of torque ensures top-notch performance, responsiveness, and fuel efficiency for the new Kia Seltos SX. And with a new 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission enhanced by selectable driving modes, the dynamic powertrain combination provides lively performance in varying road conditions.

The 2024 Kia Seltos SX Turbo is priced at P 1.688 million and comes with a 5-year or 160,000-kilometer warranty and 24/7 emergency roadside assistance. It comes in two colors: Pluton Blue and Snow White Pearl with Black Roof.


  1. Nice, those who want sunroof can have it now with peace of mind vs unproven reliability of china car brands.

  2. Sadly AC Motors followed the Columbian Motors pricing strategy... OVERPRICED!

  3. If its made in korea the priced just right but if its from china it should be priced lower at least 100k bcoz of lower tax and lower labor cost. AC motors not learned a lesson from not selling well overpriced vw tharu

  4. Too expensive for the 1.4L Turbo with 142hp and 242Nm of torque rating. Honda HR-V Turbo, Ford Territory Titanium X, Mazda CX-5 Pro & CX-30 Pro are waving...

  5. 200k less and this might compete. could have been a no brainer actually. but hey they should know better

  6. Price of the fully loaded Seltos SX Turbo is actually good
    Nice work Kia Philippines

  7. Is this imported from Dongfeng Yueda Kia? Seems like AC motors has a habit of bringing in Chinese assembled cars that retain Korean-spec pricing.

  8. 1.68M is a hard sell. This wont fly. Even the 1st gen seltos did not do well. Very rare you see them on the road.
