I was wondering if anyone has bought any of the few things available for the 2021 Seltos? Like the fake exhaust pipe or the kick covers that go on inside of the doors... Trying to think of Christmas presents to ask for! Lol Of course id love something for the new whip but there's not much to pick from.. Any info would be appreciated? Good or 馃憥...even aftermarket floor mat/cargo reviews...thanks yall! Have a blessed

Identical story re:4pc. mudguard set-instead of going knock-off for 36-ish, paid 97 because I didn't wish to wait for weeks and the funny thing is I have got sport pedals (22.40) from Korea and an (18.40) console tray from China for instance and only took about 2wks max to get'em..true story : the only G70 vent-visor set which is currently known to mankind is retailed out from Russia and I got mine in four(4) months. My cars don't even leave my crib for 4-6 weeks because I get them dialed in to my tastes before I'll cruise 'em(except to drive to the audio install place, or the clear bra place, or the tire/wheel place, my Seltos doesn't leave the garage 'til it's road ready: 165 miles on it and bought it 11-18, it's 12-21 as I write this..all prices I ever list BTW are tax included(10%) and USD
Haha! You are definitely into your Seltos!
I am kind of liking this! Not much info or price to be found on Luxood website though..

Definitely want to get the window visors. The hood deflector is definitely not something I鈥檇 want on my car as it鈥檚 super awkward the way it fits a quarter up the hood. I was looking at the mud flaps but I honestly don鈥檛 think the Kia ones actually do anything. They seem to be way to small for any functionality. I鈥檓 waiting for weather tech or some other company to come out with bigger ones. Our Seltos did not come with floor mats at all which was a shocker, but I purchased the all weather ones from the parts department for $130 which I don鈥檛 think was a bad deal. I also purchased the rear cargo tray as well to keep the rear carpet protected.

I just bought the cargo mat. Mine seems to extend a bit too far up on the right side... does yours fit perfectly? Can you post a pic so I can see what I鈥檓 doing wrong? Thank you

I just got a cargo mat for Christmas too...my Seltos is the S turbo w/o the subwoofer in the back so mine mat has bigger wings that sick out farther then the one for ur SX ...i bet u got the wrong model mat! Easy to do..cause mine dosnt fit the models with the Bose system.
Came across this photo without the fake exhaust look. There is definitely something to be said for it...it actually does look rather nice! Oh well..

I have seen many reviewers dislike those fake exhausts. I agree it looks nice without them. This could be the base model in some parts of the world.

Yeah, they seem to get a bad rap on all cars, from most reviewers. Real exhaust or nothing!
They don鈥檛 bother me, on any car really, but I can see how some other options may look a little cleaner.

Thanks for the response! I鈥檒l send a picture after work. It鈥檚 only on the right side, so must be for something extra like you said. When I ordered off of weather tech, they didn鈥檛 have a selection for model, just 21 seltos! Oh well, not a huge issue, but still. 馃し馃徎鈥嶁檧锔

Nice! I have the mud flaps...thought about changing the emblems, which ones did u get and how did it turn out? Im afraid some of the aftermarket ones look cheep...the stock ones fit my color scheme but wouldnt mind ones with a lil red in them to accent the red on wheels...letting everyone know its a turbo! Lol anyway...were the cup liners the carbon fiber inserts ? How do they look and did they fit just right... I know u can get them for front cups and back holders too. Thanks for the info....much love, have a blessed day!
I added black side molding. window guards, painted calipers red, add mud flaps -> OME all from Amazon. Rubber floormat for back. installed a cargo net. The "K "badges to front and back. New Michelin CrossSeason 2s Worth every penny. factory winter mats cause where I park its sandy at work.. And a K&N filter.. planning on getting roof wrapped in black, like I wanted, but would have had to have waited 6-10 months. Its an SX turbo...

Have you checked with a company like Wrapmate? I would imagine they have enough shops in their network to get you in somewhere.

Just checked them out they are much higher than a local guy, who is highly recommended.. Wrapmate wants $700, This guy under $400...

Great minds think alike! I wanted a two-tone white/black Seltos SX originally, but - like you said - would have had to wait quite a while, so I opted for one in snow white pearl.

I decided I wanted to wrap my roof black as well, so I started calling around and asking people I know. I work in a dealership (not Kia), so I know a few other car guys. 馃檪 I got introduced to a guy who wraps as a side gig and does amazing work. He has an Optima fully wrapped in a matte green w/ black roof that looks super clean. Anyway, took my Seltos to him today for him to look at & quote the job. Gonna be $375! And he鈥檚 doing it tomorrow!

I鈥檒l post a pic or two when it鈥檚 done.

I added mud flaps, all lights are LED, front cabin foot lights and auto boot. Also wrapped the roof in black and side mirrors.

I've been wondering as well about a few things to make the Seltos a little more striking and eye catching than it already is... I have seen someone with a similar front fender (I'm guessing would be a) vent-like molding piece that I rather like, and would like to try and find... pic for attention below... Anybody know where I can find pieces like this, and on the US???


I also wouldn't mind finding a set of wheels maybe an inch or two bigger as well... the right style wheels totally make the look of a vehicle... Whats some wheels that would sharpen the looks of the Seltos???

I've also just came across someone - obviously overseas, and I believe in China - that has a kit to lower the Seltos, which looks absolutely awesome!!! Between lowering it and some of the body kit pieces I see that are available, would make for one wild looking Seltos... too bad most of the stuff like the better looking body kit parts and the suspension lowering parts would be pretty much impossible to get in the US - not to mention be expensive as all hell...




Anybody else have any links to other things thay would take the Seltos' looks to the next level???

I know I might be going on a limb with this next one, but who has ANY leads out there on adding even just a little bit more power - things like a cold air intake, any kind of tunes, exhaust upgrades??? I wouldn't be looking for absolutely insane power gains, but something like a cold air intake & perhaps a little bit bit bigger exhaust with a nice tone to it I think would be nice...

Here are a few engine tunes available - they all void the warranty, and that much of a power increase can't easily happen without enhancing the cooling and ensuring the clutch will hold. But fun to think about:


Who's going to be first?
