    • 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.

    Q. Which will be better Kia seltos automatic petrol 1.4 or diesel 1.5?
    • Choosing between the fuel type would depend on your daily running with the car if you drive for around 50 kilometers or more in a day, then we'd recommend opting for the 1.5-litre diesel engine of Kia Seltos as the diesel engine uses 15-20 percent less fuel compared to the petrol engines resulting in cheaper running costs and vice versa. Moreover, the 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine is exclusively available with the GT-Line while the diesel engine is available with the HT-Line of Kia Seltos. Moreover, we'd recommend taking a test drive of the car for a better insight into the performance, comfort and compatibility. Follow the link for dealership details - Kia Car Showrooms
    • There is a lot of difference in Petrol 1.4 and Diesel 1.5. If you want performance and a punchy engine then go for 1.4 petrol and if you want fuel efficient car, then go for 1.5 diesel. Please remember, service cost of diesel engine is slightly more than petrol engines. Also keep in mind the difference between fuel cost per ltr of petrol and diesel. All the best
