Kia Seltos 2020

The 2020 Kia Seltos range of configurations is currently priced from $25,690.

Carsguide Contributing journalist Andrew Chesterton had this to say at the time: Short answer? The Seltos has been a welcome addition to our little family, and it's been impressive in a whole lot of ways over the past few months. It's not too big, and not too small, but most importantly, plenty of families will find it just right.

Kia Seltos 2020 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Seltos 2020 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Can the 2020 Kia Seltos be serviced by an authorised motor mechanic?

    There are two main reasons to service a car. The first is to keep the vehicle running in an efficient, clean, safe and comfortable way. The second is so that you maintain your factory warranty. A car-maker is not obliged to honour some aspects of a new-car warranty if the vehicle hasn’t been serviced correctly, so it’s important, especially since the Kia warranty is such a good one at seven-years/unlimited kilometres. In fact, the Kia warranty is the best in the business in Australia.

    With that in mind, provided you use a properly accredited workshop that is authorised to stamp your service book, yes you can use a non-Kia workshop or dealership to have your car serviced and retain your factory warranty. That said, the Kia isn’t an especially expensive vehicle to have serviced with 12 month or 15,000km service intervals.

    Have you investigated Kia’s seven-year capped price servicing deal? It stacks up very well over the full seven years and, in fact, a Seltos is really no more expensive to service than the little Kia Picanto under the capped-price schedule. Definitely talk to the dealer about capped price servicing if you go ahead and buy a Kia, you might be surprised how cost-effective it is.

  • Kia Seltos 2019: Is it too small?

    The question of whether the Kia is too small compared to the Subaru or Toyota really comes down to your individual situation, Greg. However, while the Seltos is marketed as a competitor for the Mazda CX-3 or Hyundai Kona it is much larger than both those compact cross-overs, measuring up only 40mm shorter than its larger Sportage sibling! It is a great-looking machine but I’d go for an all-wheel-drive model to avoid the 2WD’s antiquated torsion-beam rear-end.
