    Q. Which is the best variant to buy in Kia Seltos?
    • Value for money buys1) basic variants HTE, both petrol & Diesel.2) mid variants HTK plus both petrol & Diesel.3) top variants HTX both petrol & Diesel.4) The top most variants HTX plus & GTX plus, both petrol & Diesel are the best, but not value for money.
    • Agreed all are in one or another single value for money even the highest model don't cross luxury limit to pay the tax for it watch out for long term review luster gone in many Chinese parts and the Corona the future of Kia???
    • In both GT-line and HT-line, we'd recommend opting for the X variant as both HTX and GTX justifies the incremental value and could be a value for money option.
