What cars will everyone be cross shopping? It looks like the Honda HR-V, Toyota C-HR and Subaru Crosstrek will be direct competitors. What else is there?

I live in Australia and I'm on the lookout for a small SUV. I've looked at the Nissan Qashqai, Mitsubishi ASX, Hyundai Kona and Honda HRV. I knew that the KIA Seltos was on the way here and also the MAZDA CX30 will be available here around March. I'm very impressed with the KIA Seltos ..... I've read some pre information and have seen photos of the MAZDA CX30 and I prefer the KIA Seltos. It will be my next vehicle.

I'm quite confident the Kia Seltos will also be a more reliable vehicle than the Mazda CX30. What's the warranty like for Mazdas in Australia?

In the US, besides the models listed above - Buick Encore, Chevy Traxx, and Ford Escape - I compared them all, and by my avitar - it wasn't even close!!! Best value, pricing, and performance than any other in this segment. 4 months of research and everytime I came back to the Seltos SX!!!! The tech package in the SX is heads above the rest as well! Best purchase to date!!!!

That's great to hear! The Buick Encore is a pretty nice vehicle but I had a feeling the Seltos would be a step or two above...

The Turbo version of the Encore was 31,300.00 (Basic Turbo Model at that!) - they had incentives, but the price point of the Seltos SX is going to be hard for the competition to handle at this point for sure!!!

The Encore is nice inside, but I agree on the front end and it looks like at the last second they said, "squish it on both ends"!!! haha Seltos has a great stance as well, it looks and rides great so far.

The Seltos is Definitely going to be a huge hit. It's the nicest looking vehicle in it's class. At least in my opinion...
