Welcome aboard, @amber! And thank you for signing up. The Kia Seltos will be a nice upgrade from the Elantra! I hope you do get it. Keep us posted!Hi, I live in Australia and currently drive a Hyundai Elantra SE. As I'm now a senior and having some knee issues I've been on the look out for a small SUV for easier entry and exit. I really like the Kia Seltos especially the Sport+ model. I intend purchasing one - it will be my first KIA.
Welcome aboard! And thank you for signing up. Yes, I’m familiar with the Outlander. The Seltos will be a nice upgrade. How long is your wait?In Australia and a Mitsubishi ASX (Outlander Sport in some markets). A huge upgrade in technology. So looking forward to it.
Wow, just a 1 month wait! Mines been on order since mid Feb and was told May, then July, now im told theyre not sure so its going to be even later. Where in Aus are you just roughly, im in Central Victoria. Im getting tired of this and cant help but feel they are giving City orders priority over us in the bush as I keep hearing of others ordering way after me getting theirs. Im so close to walking away from this Seltos and going elsewhere to be honest. Contacted Kia Aus and got run around then finally a guy contacted me and was kind of sheepish and aprehensive in the responses he gave, the dealership, forget it, "we'll get back to you, we'll get back to you.........."
Interesting choice. I would like to wait and see if Seltos gets the EV or hybrid treatment in the NEAR future, but can't see that happening either.I would really have loved to jump into the Soul EV next but, for various reasons, it is not yet available in Australia...and probably won't be for a while.
My first Kia,always had Toyota's. Warranty, service,technology. I researched for month's. Wanted a small SUV,Seltos feels bigger. Embarrassing part was picking it up,bloody big red bow on it lol.So! Will the KIA Seltos be your first KIA? What are you driving now?
