There were talks about the Kia Seltos getting new features and this had to happen. With the all-new Hyundai Creta that gnawing at its feet, Kia Motors India had to take some action as the company has today launched the refreshed Kia Seltos. We don’t mean a facelift but instead a new variant line-up, with more features, and also some from the higher ones have been trickled down to the lower versions. The Seltos was also launched last year and is currently one of the hottest selling SUVs in India as well. Kia Motors India has now taken the opportunity to add a sunroof to the lower variants while at the same time, as the UVO connected app now gets additional functions.
These include the smartwatch connectivity and voice commands. Two variants of turbo-petrol engine have been discontinued GTK manual and GTX 7-DCT. The prices of the SUV that start from Rs 9.89 lakh and go up to Rs 17.34 lakh, ex-showroom.
A silver garnish is available around the temperature of the control unit of the aforementioned variants as well. Kia is offering a new dual-tone option for the sunroof of the HTX+ and GTX+ variants. Kia India has not changed the engine or transmission options and the Seltos continues to be powered by 3 powertrains. There are two petrol and one diesel with both manual and automatic options. The competition for the Kia Seltos comes from the Nissan Kicks, the upcoming Maruti Suzuki S-Cross, and the Hyundai Creta.
