18. 2023 Kia Seltos AWD (tie)
Starting MSRP: $22,840
MPG (city / hwy / combined): 27 / 31 / 29
An all-new entry in the Kia lineup last year, the Seltos slots between the Soul and Sportage crossovers. With higher ground clearance and larger wheel arches that give the crossover a tough stance, the Seltos features more traditional SUV styling similar to the larger Telluride. Kia offers the Seltos in five trim levels with an emphasis on all-wheel drive, which is standard for almost every trim. Power is provided by a 2.0-liter four cylinder producing 146 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque, teamed with Kia’s Intelligent Variable Transmission. Kia also offers a more powerful turbocharged powerplant, but fuel economy is highest for the 2.0-liter engine.
