Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

It's taken years, but with the Seltos, Kia finally has a small SUV on sale in Australia. Can it compete in a hard-fought market? Alborz Fallah finds out.

Pros
Super spacious and practical inside
Great ride and handling package
Looks the business
Best in class infotainment and technology
Seven-year warranty

Cons
Base models miss out on more advanced safety features
No rear-air vents on most variants
No power tailgate
Front-wheel drive models ride a little on the firm side

Subaru's popular subcompact crossover gains a host of new features for 2020, starting with an auto stop-start system for models equipped with the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Automatic climate control, Subaru's Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) selectable driving modes, and a new collision-detection automatic door-unlock system are also standard across the range. The mid-range Premium model now can be equipped with a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat and keyless entry with push-button start. Limited models get new LED fog lamps and both the Limited and the Hybrid come with rear-seat USB charging ports.

Pros
Rugged styling,
carlike ride and handling,
available plug-in hybrid.

Cons
Mediocre acceleration,
boring interior appearance,
cramped cargo area.
