Took delivery of my AWD SX Turbo in March. It's been a joy to drive for the first month of ownership. Glad I waited a few days for the Seltos to arrive off the truck. It looks and feels sportier than the Sportage! Worth every penny.

Nice! That would be my color choice too.

Is the Turbo and DCT the way to go...Thank you...
Turbo - definitely. The extra key up and go is reassuring. Flip to Sport mode and she takes off. The DCT is a bit different and is my first DCT vehicle so I am getting used to it. Even in Smart mode, if it gets a little jumpy, I can slide the selector over and it stops, especially when climbing a grade or needed to pass.

Over the past year, for me, SMART mode has been best for cruising. When I am in town or need a little extra oomph, NORMAL mode seems to be sufficient. The jumpiness of the DCT tends to happen when I am in around town traffic.

SPOrt mode isn't the frequent, usually just one on ramp in particular near my house. it is a rather short on ramp from a dead stop and traffic is going at a good clip so I have to accelerate quickly.
