Kia Seltos FAQs

What is the best small car for under $30000?

You don't need to spend $30,000 to get a great small car to run around town in. A Suzuki Swift GL Navigator from $17,690 plus on-road costs ($1000 more for the auto) makes for an excellent choice, with a surprisingly roomy interior, a refined, frugal and lively engine, great handling and superb reliability. Great value for money, in other words.


Moving on from there, to the next size up and in our order of preference, are the Mazda 3, Ford Focus Active, Volkswagen Golf, Toyota Corolla Hatch, Honda Civic (turbo only) and Subaru Impreza. All are quality small cars that should fit the bill perfectly.


There's also merit in considering a small SUV, chiefly because their higher roofline and loftier seating positions make them easier to get in and out as well as see out of. Our value pick is the Kia Seltos S with Safety Pack. The Mazda CX-30 and Toyota C-HR are also high-quality and refined choices, though they're right at the cusp of your budget so you may have to search for a discounted demo model. Going small SUV does  mean extra outlay, but they do generally offer better resale value, as their popularity seems endless.


As you can see, there's lots of choice, so take your time, drive the ones you like the look of, and see which feels best. Out of scores of alternatives, these 10 are our top recommendations at under $30K.

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 2021: Will it come with AWD standard?

My Kia insiders tell me that Kia is likely to retain its current mix of two and four-wheel-drive options for the Seltos into the future. It may well be true that only the base-model will get two-wheel-drive in some markets, but here, I am told, a greater mix of price points is the aim, meaning that you’ll still have plenty of choice.


As for an LX-badged model, that’s a real left-field one. Kia’s badging structure in Australia generally follows the S, Sport, Sport Plus and GT (for turbocharged models) so even if there was a new LX badge to emerge, I have no idea where that would fit into the range. Neither does Kia Australia (because I checked with head office). Even then, it would be likely that a new badge or naming policy would be introduced for a new model or at least a facelift of the current car, but since the Seltos is only about 12 months old here, that isn’t due to happen for some time. Perhaps the LX is a model in, say, the US market. Always check the country of origin when using websites to research.
