1) Heated steering wheel
2) Ventilated front Seats
3) Rain sensing wipers
4) HUD
5) Adjustable passenger seat (my 2021 SX Turbo has fixed passenger seat) for my petite wife.
6) Power liftgate - my wife complains on how heavy it is for her to open the backdoor.
7) Driver seat memory.
8) Rain sensing windshield wiper.

I had all of the above from my previous SUV which I traded in for the Seltos. I down-sized and had to get away from that vehicle manufacturer.

Few of the above, though, are standard in the Canadian SX Turbo!

I’m happy with my Seltos so far even without the above features. It’s too early to tell.

Heated steering wheel and a HUD display for certain. I tend to ride mostly by myself so haven't given much thought to the power seat. I would however like to see memory for at least the driver seat.

1. Memory setting for driver seat. I have the top-of-the-line SXT and every time I take it in for service I have to fiddle with the power seat for days to get it back to where I like it.
2. 4-way lumbar power adjustment on the driver seat lumbar. It only goes in and out ...not up or down! :mad:
3. Back up warning alarm/beeps as you approach objects or vehicles while in reverse ...just like I had in my previously owned 2016 SXT Optima! It has side cross path detection. How hard or costly would have been to add this feature too? :mad:
4. Surround-view cameras for backing up and parking ...like I had on my 2016 SXT Optima!
5. Less expensive OEM assesories like roof-fack and trailer hitches!
6. Hand-free and automatic tail-gate.

P.S. Lest anyone get the false impression ...I love my Seltos and love some of the new features that I didn't have such as the lane-keep-assist but am disappointed that KIA didn't include the same features I had in a 4-year prior top-of-the-line model Optima ...as well as adding there new ones the 2021 Seltos SXT has! After owning an SUV ...I could never go back to a sedan!

1) Ventilated seats
2) Digital dash like the 2022 Kona
3) 200hp from the 1.6 to match the output of the Soul
4) Surround view parking camera

My wife and I are are looking at the Seltos to replace our 2010 Honda Fit Sport. We too have seen the canadaian models in our YouTube reviews and wish these options we’re available in the higher trim levels like the SX Turbo models. We would’ve wait if we knew they where offered in the 2023 models.

1. Ability to set the initial "Idle, Stop & Go" to 'off/disabled' in the driver profile.
2. Ability to have initial "Auto-Hold' enabled in the driver profile.
3. Ability to have initial "Highway Driving Assist" enabled in the driver profile.
4. Ability to have initial "Auto High-Beam Assist" enabled in the driver profile.
5. Ability to have the Moon Roof automatically close upon turning off the car.
6. Ability to set the initial driving mode "Eco", "Smart", "Sport" in the driver profile.
6. The ability to have the above settings set as the default so that new profiles and/or guest inherit the above settings.
7. Ability to update the audio-head and navigation system from the app without needing to use an intermediary device such as a USB drive.
8. Android Auto WiFi. (It's downright silly that my 2021 SX Turbo has Qi charging but not Android WiFi). A fix to this issue before a new car only makes happier customers.
9. An additional USB charging port in the driver side door and/or in a location not in the center dash- for use by the front passenger. I prefer not to have people have a passenger reach near the shifter while pugging in/unplugging devices on road trips.
10. An RGB LED light in the glovebox - that activates when the glovebox is opened - and the ability to set its color and brightness. Maybe use the mood-lighting item here?
11. LED lights under each seat, and the option to enable them to be active when a door is opened - to help people see things they might have dropped or need to unload.
12. Additional LED lighting in the trunk / back deck - same as 11 - for unloading/loading.
13. Optional inverter built-in, in the trunk space.
14. Seat adjustment to support having small people sit in the back and/or front seats. My wife is 4'10" and rides in the back. There is no comfortable position as the seat belt height is too tall for her. She doesn't want to use a booster seat! My r-niece uses a booster seat, she's 6 years old. Even in the booster the belt crosses her neck not her shoulder.
15. Passenger door cup holders. The center back seat holder is nice - but not usable when there are 3 people in the back. A front passenger cup holder would be less distracting too.
16. An add on-pet carrier for cats and other small pets - to put into the storage lift-gate area instead of the privacy deck.
17. A real tow-package option.
