I've had it since Thursday, 200 miles in now, and thus far I love it!
Gravity Gray/Black is what I purchased.
I was looking for a vehicle, not a Seltos. I wasn't aware of its pending arrival etc.. It just happened to pop up on my radar so I went for a test drive. The rest as they say is history.
I can't wait to have time to read the manual.

Happy travels to all!

Same for me. Was looking at other things. They had just pulled off the truck and I was like what's that? And drove it it and ended up buying it. And couldn't turn down the deal I got as well.

What were you originally looking at when you were at the dealer?

Well was looking at the sportage, new escape, and a few others in same category. Had a slammed Honda Accord but wanted something a little bigger.

Oh that's cool that you got a chance to compare a couple other vehicles to the Seltos. Btw, did you have an Accord coupe or sedan? I love the styling of the coupes so much, it's my favorite Honda design.

Hi Steelgoddess, How did the Seltos stand out compared to those other SUVs?
Sorry it took me so long to meander back....
And remember as I do my mini comparison, I drove a prius. I am a small vehicle driver, and short as well :)

If i had to pick one I would say to me this drives closest to the Nissan Rogue Sport. I really liked how that drove, and liked it overall. When I almost purchased one, I had no clue the Seltos existed. The dealer started playing games so I just left and that vehicle was history... They need to work on their dealerships as each one was a story. I had a discount program for this one, it should have been easy.

The Kona. The first time I really liked the test drive... Not enough to pull the trigger, but enough to consider.. On subsequent rides, it felt choppy and I felt claustrophobic in it. Perhaps it was because on one of the test drives a salesman who was on the larger/taller side drove with me. The very small storage space bothered me as well. By the 4th ride, I disliked it.

The Tucson..I liked it ..didn't love it...but liked it alot. I never truly felt comfy in it as it felt too big. It had lots of great features, but the price point bothered me as well as available inventory. It's about a 4k difference between Tucson and Seltos. Nice features and storage on the Tucson.

The Subaru. I really wanted to love the subaru. My first test drive was a parking lot drive as it had no gas. I liked it. However, It was so stiff and tank like to me after I drove the Seltos. I drove all the cars again, except the Nissan, after I drove the Seltos. The Seltos was the only one that felt the same or better in each drive, and it really highlighted what I didn't like about the others. The interior is nicer on the Crosstrek.

The Seltos just felt so comfortable, and dealer experience, overall was pretty good. 3 weeks or so later, i am still pleased.

Same here! Was looking at the Nissan Rogue but learned of the warranty that Kia offers. Ended up with my Seltos!

No problem at all, glad to hear from you! I agree with you the price difference between the Tucson and the Seltos is way too big to justify the Tucson.

I've found Kia dealers to be a much better place to be in compared to other dealers. Whatever they're doing with their employees it's working.
