The standard engine offered for the all new compact SUV is the four-cylinder 2.0-liter that produces 146 horsepower. The standard engine is mated to a CVT transmission for extra smooth cruising.
There are no fuel economy numbers for the Seltos quite yet but we can assume they will be similar to its sister the Kona. For front-wheel drive models fuel economy could be as high as 33 mpg when equipped with the 2.0-liter. The all-wheel-drive model with the same engine can be expected to achieve similar fuel economy as one with front-wheel-drive. The front-wheel-drive 1.6-liter Seltos could see as high as 34 mpg.
A slight upgraded from the 2.0-liter the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine delivers a slightly more sporty experience. The turbo allows the 1.6-liter to produce a bit more horsepower over the standard engine option. 175 horsepower will allow for a more exciting drive. For a compact SUV, these numbers will offer a drive that will be sure to not disappoint.
