The fact that the LX will have all-wheel drive as standard and will start at $22,000 is a big move by Kia! This is going to bring in a lot of customers.

Thanks for this awesome listing!
I want the 2 wheel drive S, but I am worried it has too much standard equipment to have a reasonable price. The press release did say that it would be under $22,000 ( like the LX AWD). Hoping it is closer to 21, 000 or less because the destination charge would bump it back up o $22,000.

Very excited about this car because it is just the right size and has a roomy backseat.

I am disappointed in the interior storage and that the S does not have front seatback pockets. I use them all the time in my current car. Do you think this might change when actual cars get here?

It's possible on an all new version (maybe a typo in the initial specs), but doutbful as It's only standard on the EX and SX versions. You'll have to go for some sort of aftermarket feature to create the same effect.

I rarely use them so this isn't as big of an issue for me, but hopefully Kia changes that or there's some good aftermarket options for you.

Hoping it's a typo because on most cars it's there except on the very base model.

I have been searching after market, but so far they have been somewhat tacky. If you see something good let me know.

Surprised being a Sport Utility there are not more or bigger storage bins. Seems more coup or sedan level here.

Hey I found something for Seltos from other parts of the world. This seat back organizer follow the contour of the hard seat back as they are also in the US. Could do without the tissue dispenser, but it does fit the car more elegantly.

Many new cars don't come with adequate lumbar support, so many of us require something to support the curvature of the spine. I use one all the time.

But I am happy for you not needing one.

I think that came out the wrong way, that wasn't meant to make fun of you or anyone that uses one, I just thought it's funny that Kia is selling a pillow. Sorry about that.

HOMELINK Option.

I'm surprised that the SX Turbo with the Electrochromatic Rear View Mirror doesn't appear to have Homelink (to be used to operate a garage door opener.) I called someone at Kia and eventually found out it's an option for about another $400 to get a mirror with Homelink and I don't know if the mirror quality is the same.

I tried to post the link for the auto dimming mirror w/homelink & compass, and I received the following popup:

Is this the link you were referring to?

Yes. I also watched a review of the Australian model of the Seltos and it has options for HUD and ventilated seats. I would like the HUD option to see the digital speed since the digital readout on the SX is so small.

I'm with you I'd like to have the HUD as well, HUDs make things so much easier on the road.

HUD would be awesome ...Maybe they will offer it as an aftermarket OEM from KIAin the future! I'd consider upgrading my SX if that happens and doesn't cost an arm and a leg!

I think it's possible that it gets added in future models. Hyundai is stepping their game up in the HUD market.
