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???
  • N 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.

Q. There have been a lot of negative reviews for Seltos off late and this is really getting me confusing as to whether I should stick to Seltos or cancel the booking and opt for Creta, thus being safe?
  • Don’t cancel your booking. I have clocked 5800 km on my diesel 1.5 seltos and i have faced NO problems at all till date. The only problem with seltos is in case you meet with an accident then it will take some lil bit more time for spares to arrive in workshop but it is obvious as the brand is new. Seltos is perfect package according to me and iam happy with my Seltos. Even i had cancelled creta 1.4 crdi booking after seltos was launched. And iam very happy that i bought KIA SELTOS. Just go ahead for seltos without a second thought
  • Plz don’t buy seltos . Now Indian crash test has given only 3 stars to seltos . you should surely go for creta.Even brezza is been given 4 stars . I have seltos GTK 2019 model . As soon as I saw the rating given in Indian crash test I feel bad for my decision.plz think before buying .
  • The crash test applies only to models with 2 air bags. GTX+ has 6 air bags and is on par with other cars in the category

Q. Which is better Kia Seltos petrol or diesel?
  • 1) Diesel will have slightly more maintenance costs than petrol version, however this is offset by distance travelled over 15,000 km per year, AC usage, full load of passengers looking, luggage etc.2) However maintenance & servicing of DCT is expensive, because of the Nature of the components, high cost of spares, replacement, consumables of the DCT.3) Further DCT is a premium version & Naturally servicing & spares will be substantially higher, when compared to other versions.4) DCT variant is for premium segment, those who are willing to spend money for luxury, sporty feel, high power output. Those looking for economy should avoid DCT & gofor petrol or diesel. Also kia makes maximum margin on the DCT variant. 5) That said, I emphasize that DCT variant servicing & maintenance will be substantially higher, but it will not cost a bomb, like Audi, Skoda, Mercedes etc so test drive a DCT & if you love it, go for it, without regrets.
  • 1) if you drive more than 15, 000 to 20,000 km per year go for the diesel.2) if your driving kilometers is less than 15000 per year go for the petrol.3) if you are addicted to the torque of diesel, get the diesel variant, irrespective of annual kilometers covered.4) if you are a connoisseur, to get maximum pleasure of driving & not bothered about the mileage or maintenance costs, go for the DCT ( 7 speed Dual clutch transmission) in Turbo petrol.Special Remarks, Assimilate the art of driving a DCT from Google ( Theory) & grasp the gist of it, before you test drive a DCT.
