Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which car is worth tp buy, Seltos or Astor?
  • Both MG Astor and Kia Seltos are considerable SUVs. Morris Garages might be late to the compact SUV party with the Astor. However, MG has given its segment-first features like AI tech and autonomous driving features to ensure the Astor stands out from the crowd. Then there’s the interior quality, which is easily one of the best in its segment. The Seltos, on the other hand, promises to be a combination of premium quality, stylish looks, and a plethora of engine-transmission options with a sprinkle of premium appeal. And more than anything its pricing makes it one of the hottest picks in the segment. The Astor’s biggest trump card, though, is the interior quality. In fact, MG has done such a good job that it might just set a new segment benchmark. Also, the ADAS system proved to be well-calibrated and promises to make your everyday drive much safer and convenient. For a better understanding of compatibility, performance and driving comfort, we would suggest you to take a test drive. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.

Q. Which is the best variant to buy in Kia Seltos?
  • I own a 2021 Kia Seltos 1.4TGDI DCT model. In terms of performance it's one of the best I have driven. On open roads it can easily beat the likes of Innova, Fortuner and all big guys with its sheer speed and Dual clutch just makes you zoom past other cars while they figure to get the car in right gear. Power is in its dual clutch and turbo engine. The Dual clutch is the best, it's like someone is choosing the right gear for you constantly. Features wise one of the best and the 360 camera quality is on par with high end cars. I have not driven the diesel automatic on highway but it will not be as quick as the 1.4TGDI especially with torque converter. If you enjoy driving a good car this is the best you can get, the top end petrol variant. Mileage average I got is 13kmpl with half aggressive highway and half on eco mode in city combined. I will take that anyday with the performance the car is giving. I went for top end petrol because of its performance and dual clutch which I know is drivers best friend. I didn't choose diesel because the same engine is being offered from base variant of Sonet and all the way upto top end Seltos. There is no value for money in the top variant for diesel. You can get the same engine for much less cost.
  • 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???

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.
