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
