Does anyone know if the engine and transmission in the US 1.6L turbocharged variant is the same as the Soul Turbo, just downtuned?

They have the same torque rating and felt somewhere I had seen the same displacement. Sure sounded like they were identical - along with the DCT.

I ask just for dependability in the system. If that powertrain is solid in the Kia lineup (and the Kona as well since it's certainly the same powertrain), then got to figure the Seltos would have good reliability.

Thanks for the discussion and thoughts. Picked up the Seltos a few weeks ago. Checked basically every box for me in what I wanted with a new vehicle. Been really happy with it.

The DCT takes some getting used to. Despite the warranty, I just hope it has the longevity that I expect in a car.
