Seems to be an excellent vehicle. 1000 miles today

Excellent fuel mileage. My wife loves the blue tooth and other amenities. I find that the 10 year/100,000 mile warranty is a plus. The salesman was excellent and not at all pushy to make a sale.

Steering wheel vibration/decide for yourself.

RE: Seltos.... If you decide to test drive, pay special attention to the amount of 'vibration' in the steering wheel and decide if you can live with it or not.(at least on the "S" FWD) I didn't pay close enough attention when I test drove...and then I bought one. :( KIA says it is a "natural characteristic" of the vehicle. This even after Techs from two different dealerships test drove and declared 1) "That is not right" (when he felt the vibration) and 2) described in his report to KIA as "Excessive Steering vibration". [yes I test drove before I bought, but you are thinking about the mirrors, blind spots, acceleration, where the control knobs are, interior, etc...plus a sales rep is with you feeding you information....noticed it when I was just a few miles from dealership after the purchase, but didn't realize the full extent at that point.]

Great car everything works as it should. Went from sports car to this so it was definitely much needed living in the north. The only thing that I don’t like is there are not enough cup holders for those sitting in the back seat.

Hyundai Kona, but cool.

I was looking for a wagon or small SUV and hadn't heard of the Seltos. After a test drive, I must say that I was impressed. Lots of great comfort features even in the lower models. The exterior styling is a big step up. It's somewhat like a mini Telluride. There is obviously plenty of plastic in the interior, but it still looks and feels more expensive than it is. Performance was a tad better than expected. You could get a bit more from a Subaru but you get more overall in performance and style for the money with a kia. As for reliability, time will tell.

unbelievable room for me (6'6") & I need leg room

the leg room is fantastic, i never found a car that i could stretch my leg straight out until the Seltos. the pick up for a 4 cyl. is amazing and on the highway you don't even feel like the engine is on as it is ultra quiet and the ride is like you are driving on glass smooth as silk. Over all the design if perfect for my needs, the quality is on par with a Mercedes and the price is amazingly inexpensive for the package you get in this car.. Even though it is a first year edition, i can not find one thing wrong in any area with this car. Thank you KIA, you out did yourself in 2021.

Peak Kia Littleton is great! And the customer service is wonderful. Everyone treats you as a priority. I recently bought a 2021 kia seltos, and I love it! It is spacious, comfy, sporty, warm, cool...its really the whole package I've been looking for. Patrick Cromer was my salesperson and he was nothing short of wonderful! When I reached out online, he contacted me to check in and see if I had any questions or if I was interested in coming in and taking a look at some models. He was very kind and not at all pushy like most sales persons. I was able to take my time and decide what was right for me. So I didn't hesitate to reach out to him when I was ready. I really appreciate that I had/have him to contact about such a big purchase decision. He is full of knowledge, and I love that he is down to earth. Nothing worse than talking to someone who sounds like a sales robot. Patrick is very kind and genuine and I'm happy that my first new car buying experience was with him! I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy a car!

Just got yesterday. Went to trade 2018 Kia Soul for 2020 Kia Soul. Was not impressed enough with 2020 Kia Soul. Liked 2021 Kia Seltos better than Soul. Got good deal and traded 2018 Kia Soul for 2021 Kia Seltos. Was not aware of the Seltos until yesterday.
