Hello fellow Seltos owners. Just purchased. Traded in my Nissan Murano. Only reason is that I had too many miles on it. Murano whole different class of a vehicle, I'll miss it. Like the handling, view, and looks. Disappointed with the dysfunctional way KIA has with the options. On the S, I have the lane avoidance, Emergency stop, but No side notifications, very odd. Turn signals, head light control & Cruise levers not Illuminated at night? Again very odd. Don't get me wrong I am really enjoying it. I will change out my tires within the year. I read that the Kumho Solus tires where horrible. I do agree if they upped the quality of the tires, it would ride much better. I wished I had asked the dealer to switch tires out. Need to purchase cargo carrier cover. Good luck to all new owners. Great looking car!

Am currently looking at the CX30 and the Seltos but how would you describe the ride comfort? Is it too firm and harsh/jarring over bumps or they soak them well? I prefer a more comfortable ride than being too sport and firm. Appreciate the feedback...

I owned a 2013 Mazda CX 5 before and love it. If i was to choose between the CX 5 and the Seltos, I would choose the CX 5 hands down. But, the CX 5 is much more expensive, my guess it's about $10 grand more (realistically). I wanted to purchase the CX 5 again, when I literally fell upon the Seltos. Don't know much about the CX30, but I hear it is really good.

If back seat space is not a concern then go for the CX-30, its a more comfortable drive and more premium feel but not on the back seats; its crammed on the back.

I agree. I did not drive a CX-30, but when I sat in the back , I felt very claustrophobic......especially because of the sloping rear roof.
