It will be one week tomorrow when I took delivery of my 2022 Seltos EX in Dark Ocean Blue. I originally thought I'd go for the white, but this blue is nice. Spending a lot of time wasting gas idling while exploring the many features of this thing. I'm discovering several "I can't believe it doesn't have..." or I really wish it had" items, but overall, I'm very pleased with the car. Mostly I'm pleasantly surprised with how much room there is in the cabin. It's only the second car I've ever driven where I don't have to rack the driver's seat all the way back to be comfortable.

Anyway, just wanted to say 'Hi', and I'm sure I'll have lots of questions as I continue to explore.

I almost bought a dark ocean blue sx instead of the nightfall, I love the color as it reminds me of some costa deep blue lenses. It the wife loves the Mars orange.
What features are you wishing you had?

Hey there,

Sorry it took so long to reply. We've been away for the weekend. Just turned over 500 miles a few minutes ago. Still like the Dark Ocean Blue. The Neptune Blue is very pretty, but would have been just a bit much for me.

A few features it would have been nice to have include:
• wireless CarPlay
• remote hatch release/close
• more and/or bigger storage for little things in cabin, like a shelf above the glovebox, bigger armrest storage, little shelf on dash.
• storage compartments or pockets around the spare tire would be nice.
• driver's seat memory
• ability to customize the radio display. The big funky numbers for the radio channels are pretty ugly, I think, and the song/artist info is smaller than I'd like.
• Trip odometer designation of A or B.
• I believe I have the most updated softwars for the infotainment display (it's the purple everyone seems to hate, but it's all I know), but it still has the old exit numbers here in MA, which the state changed last Fall.

Granted, most of these things are just little things. Overall, I'm very happy with the vehicle.

I have found that the floor above the spare tire can be raised and lowered and with it in the raised position I can fit quite a bit, however I am finding a lack of storage spaces near the driver as well, I would like a coin tray or a place to put my sunglasses.

That's why I bought this for $12.

Thanks for the link, it looks like it’s the same for the 2022’s I’m ordering it this evening and for 11$ You cannot beat that.

You're welcome. Enjoy. What's nice is you still have storage space underneath the tray and it sits in there snugly.
