What Makes The 2022 Kia Seltos AWD Lease A Great SUV For You

Sitting between the smaller Kia Soul and the much bigger Kia Sportage, the Seltos is a handsome-looking small SUV that delivers in all the right areas. Right from when it made its first debut, this Kia’s subcompact crossover has always moved to stand out from other cars in its class. It offers sleek exterior styling and an interior stacked with premium materials and desirable features that make it seem more expensive than its price tag suggests.

Now in its second year, the 2022 Seltos AWD receives a host of desirable upgrades and feature updates to make leasing the new Kia Seltos AWD a more compelling option in its class. More driver-assist features are now standard, including the automatic high-beam headlamps, automated emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist. Almost all trims in the 2022 Seltos lineup now afford the huge 10.3-inch infotainment screen as standard. Kia also adds a Nightfall Edition trim to the 2022 Seltos lineup while reshuffling the features across trims.

Engine And Performance

The 2022 Seltos AWD packs two potent engines. Its base model comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated at 146 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. This engine is mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), and of course, an all-wheel drive. A more powerful engine, a turbocharged 1.6-liter that pumps out 175 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque, is optional.

While the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder provides enough power for the daily commute, it feels a bit overwhelmed on the highway. The optional turbocharged engine gives this small SUV a little push on the highway. The new Seltos affords a composed handling, smooth ride, and sharp steering for an SUV of its size. It offers a more engaging and composed ride than most rivals. Although it may not deliver the most comfortable ride in its class, its suspension does a fine job absorbing bumps and dips in the road.

Fuel Economy

Fuel economy numbers for the new Seltos AWD are 27 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. And while it may not be the best in the 2022 Seltos lineup, these numbers are great for a subcompact SUV.


On the inside, this small crossover thrills its shoppers with ample passenger and cargo space, a well-built cabin, and nice materials. Although some hard plastics are available, that doesn’t stop the cabin of the new Seltos AWD from affording a relaxing aura. For infotainment, Kia offers its latest UVO infotainment system that features an 8-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, USB port, Bluetooth, and six-speaker stereo as standard.

This Kia’s small SUV comes with two-row seats, seating up to five in its spacious interior. There’s head and legroom space throughout the cabin for all passengers, including tall adults on the rear.


  • Automatic high-beam headlights
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Driver attention monitor
  • Forward collision warning
  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane keep assist
  • Lane follow assist
  • Rearview camera

The new 2022 Kia Seltos impresses with its delicate styling, a plethora of features, and handsome and spacious cabin with more passenger and cargo space than most subcompact SUVs. To lease this small SUV at a great bargain, call VIP Auto, 1204 Hylan Blvd, Staten Island, NY 10305

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
