The Kia Seltos was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in October 2019. This 5 star ANCAP safety rating applies to all variants.
Dual frontal, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting (curtain) airbags are standard.
Autonomous emergency braking (City and Interurban) is standard on all variants. A more advanced AEB radar-fusion system is available as an option on S, Sport & LX variants, and standard on other variants. Variants fitted with the more advanced AEB system achieve improved scores compared to the camera-only system fitted to base models, with 68% for Vulnerable Road User Protection and 78% for Safety Assist.
A lane keep assist system (LKA) with lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK) is standard.
