Yes, that is correct. I went into my dealer today to get the very first oil change for my Seltos S and had them look at the hatch locking all the time. When I left today, I drove off with a brand new Seltos SX turbo. I was walking the lot and saw the exact car I wanted the first time, but none were available. So I asked what would be the price difference. The current S model only had 1900 miles. Stupid maybe, but I'm completely satisfied now. What a difference in the two. Tire size, all the electronics and the SX had so much more electronic wizardry but I found out it was extremely easier to figure it out vs. the S model. Below is a photo of the two.

I am glad I started with the SX Turbo. Stopped by dealer to check out two tone paint as there was finally one on the lot. Gotta say the SX Turbo is just nicer all around!

Pourquo, lost some money. Problem was that I was the dealership first Seltos purchase. But they didn't have any SX anywhere back then. SX Rides much nicer than the S. Contribute to larger wheels, 18" vs 17" and slightly better tires.

So far at 3000 miles in, I'd likely do the same if I had bought the S. Worth losing a little money.

Really didn't think it would be that huge of a difference. While I was going through with the 2nd purchase, I telling myself, i must be nuts or get my head examine. I've had it for 3 days now and I'm completely happy that it was a good decision. Whole different car in my opinion!

That is a great way to get the sunroof with two tone! Hadn't thought of that. If you do this, please post some photos.
