Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    BMW 3 Series

    • Styling. Low, sporty and all things fun! M Sport variant looks delicious.
    • Punchy engines. Pick the petrol or the diesel, both promise to please with performance.
    • Quality. Interior now feels like a scaled-down 5 Series in earnest.

    Kia Seltos

    • Driver MID
    • Cabin build and quality
    • Lots to choose from
    • Automatics with all three engines

    BMW 3 Series

    • Silly feature omissions: 360° camera, keyless entry, Android Auto - all missing.
    • Low seating and tight kneeroom means it’s less than ideal for the chauffeur-driven.
    • Most of the 480-litre boot is taken up by the spare wheel.

    Kia Seltos

    • Underthigh support
    • No 6 airbag option with diesel variants
