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
  • For your information KIA Seltos and Hyundai Creta both are built on the same platform. If you are concerned about the crash test ratings then you should know that Creta would have performed similarly in the crash test due to the same build. So yeah, If you are looking for a safer option consider may be harrier or XUV 300
  • 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 .

Q. What is the difference between 1.5 petrol and 1.4 turbocharged petrol engine of Kia Seltos?
  • If you are passionate about the power and thrill while driving a car then you should go for petrol 1.4 Ltr petrol which has Turbo changer which boosts the engine power when you need to throttle. But If, punchy engine is not your prime requirement then go for 1.5 Ltr petrol engine. Also pls note that the service cost of 1.4 ltr will be slightly more than 1.5 ltr engine due to turbo charger installed in it.
  • As you know dct is dual clutch tx this enables extremly fast changing of gears. its a gdi ie exremely rich fuel mixture (because of turbo ) sprayed into the cumbustion chamber, there is no input manifold this enables better performance. gdi also have their draw back. over all its fun also in a sober mode driving its a king. some have clocked 15 to 17 average on high way of course.
  • If you want the car to pull you back while extreme acceleration then you should go for 1.4 petrol turbo.1.5 petrol has a better mileage but you will not get that punch. I have personally bought 1.4 petrol Dct, it gives me abt 8-9kmpl in city but give me a thrill to drive.
