I’ve been looking around for a while - and I can’t seem to get any clear information about the AWD system that the Seltos uses. Some say the Dynamax System, but not clear if this is the same version the Sportage has, some say similar to the Telluride; there seems to be multiple AWD systems that Kia uses? I think?

This last winter with cold and snowy roads, I felt like the AWD system performed great, better than expected. I’m just wondering if anyone has confirmed information about what AWD system it uses, and some of its capabilities?

Dynamax

According to Kia, the Seltos uses a Dynamax full-time all-wheel-drive system that uses torque vectoring to monitor road conditions and distribute power more efficiently. It also includes a center-locking differential with a control button placed on the console near the gear lever.

Hi,

It has the Magna Dynamax AWD. Here are some links. I was wondering the same myself as I am building a OneNote page with ALL features on my new SX Turbo.

:
The 2021 Seltos is offered in five trims: LX, S, EX, S Turbo, and SX Turbo. All trims except the S come standard with Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with Lock Mode to give the Seltos a better grip on some of the more difficult surfaces. This feature is optional on the S trim. Torque Vectoring Corner Control (TVCC) helps the vehicle get around corners in an easier fashion, and that’s a feature you will find on each Seltos model.
Note the S and S turbo only available in the US.



How does the Kia Dynamax AWD system work?


Offroad test:

Here's a nice video showing it in action:
