I'm a big fan of the Seltos and I'm planning to get the EX AWD trim by this year. Unfortunately, I saw many complaints about transmission issues that got me kinda worried =( Do you guys think the 2022 version will have less problems?

From what I’ve read, the same transmissions from 2021 MY are being carried into 2022. It’s worth noting that there are far more owners with the IVT/2.0L setup experiencing zero issues than people who have had failures.
Forums tend to speak much louder to the problems than good experiences.

Also, I’ve noticed that most of the reported failures are at low mileage (<15k) which is well within warranty.

No mechanical changes in 2022 - just more safety options in lower trims (good!), new Kia badging and a Nightfall Edition. Here's a pretty good review:

Just hit 10000km on my 2020 Seltos with DCT.Get great gas mileage of 6.7 litres per 100 kms on 300 km trip...for the non metric folks I believe that translates to 40m / imperial gallon, or 32 miles per US gallon. You need to adapt to the DCTs behaviour and you'll then enjoy it like I do. I really suggest you watch this video
. I did see a video where the Seltos DCT overheated in 50 yards...what a load of nonsense. !!!.
You'll also see most complaints of overheating trans are from India...no wonder, it gets as hot as hell there which would raise the operating temp for sure. Hope this helps.
