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.

Q. Is there any comparison of Kia Seltos with MG Hector?
  • I) seltos is a midsized Suv, Hector is over sized suv with a substantially higher price & weak engine. Moreover the British legacy of the Hector is obsolete, it is currently owned by the Chinese.If you are a business man with lots of merchandise to carry to your shop or a joint family, go for Hector, otherwise seltos is the best choice.
  • Yeah more competition is there but Kia seltos is best than MG hector because MG HECTOR uses BS4 Compliant engine and Kia seltos uses BS6 Compliant engine. After April 2020,all the vehicles will come BS6 Compliant. So Kia seltos is best.
  • As the Kia Seltos is yet to make its debut in the market, it would be unfair to give any verdict as of now. Read more:- 2019 Kia Seltos (Prototype) First Drive Review - Kia Seltos UVO Connect Features Revealed - Official: Kia Seltos Bookings To Begin On July 16
