Editor's View of Kia Seltos

  • Upside

    Looks stylish, Feels premium inside, Bose speaker system is delightful, First-in-segment features, Plethora of engine-transmission options, Killer pricing

  • Downside

    Rear under-thigh support could be better, Manual transmission gearshifts could be better, Rolls into corners

  • Our Verdict

    The Seltos impressed us So much that all we could complain about was a lack of under thigh support and our desire for a smoother petrol automatic. There are even choices galore in terms of variants, trim and equipment levels. And more than anything its pricing makes it one of the hottest picks in the segment.

Kia Seltos Highlights

Specifications

The Seltos sports a 1.4-litre turbo petrol and a pair of 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines, all of which will be BS6 compliant. The 1.4-litre turbo-petrol will be exclusively paired with a 7-speed DCT, the 1.5-litre NA petrol with either a 6-speed manual or a CVT and the 1.5-litre turbo-diesel with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter.

Exterior and Interior

The Kia Seltos is easily one of the best looking SUVs in the compact SUV segment. Based on the SP COncept showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo, it retains the same upright stance and sits high off the ground as well. The Seltos is marginally bigger than the Creta in all parameters except for height. There are some interesting elements here too, including a clamshell bonnet and 17-inch alloy wheels finished in gunmetal grey. Features such as LED daytime running lamps, LED tail lamps and LED headlamps are also on offer. It also gets a sunroof. A rugged looking skid plate, coupled with the LED fog lamps also adds to the character of the SUV. Kia is offering the Seltos in eight single colour schemes apart from five dual-tone paint options as well.

On the inside the quality of materials as well as the fit and finish make it feel properly premium. The leatherette wrap for the flat-bottomed steering wheel, the switches and the chrome finish was upmarket. In terms of features, the 8-speaker 400W Bose sound system was plain delightful. It felt perfectly balanced and properly loud too. In the rear seats, better under-thigh support will be desired. However, the two-step recline adjustment and ample knee room will be appreciated. Highlights that buyers will hanker after include a panoramic sunroof, handy 8-inch head-up display (HUD), ventilated front seats and a 360-degree camera.

Variants

The Kia Seltos will be offered in a total of 9 trim levels. The 1.5-litre motors (petrol & diesel) will be offered in HT E, HT K, HT K+, HT X and HT X+ trims. Kia has confirmed that the 1.5-litre diesel will have a GTX+ variant mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox however, it will be offered at a later date. The 1.4-litre trubo-petrol motor will be offered in GT K, GT X, GT X+ trims.

Competitors

Renault Duster: The car that started it all, the Renault Duster is the only modern crossover in the segment to feature an AWD system. Its butch design, adequate space, CVT transmission (petrol), AMT (diesel) and all-weather ability help it score a lot of brownie points in the segment. Interior quality and limited service network make it less appealing.

Honda BR-V: Honda's offering in the segment is essentially a jacked up Mobilio with some mechanical changes to compensate for the raised stance. It is one of the only crossovers here which can seat seven people.

Nissan Terrano: The Duster's better-looking cousin (for some), the Terrano suffers from being too overpriced for its own good. It does get a diesel AMT variant which is a good option for those looking for a convenient urban SUV.

Hyundai Creta: The Hyundai Creta might be a vanilla package but that doesn’t stop it from being a potent one. It’s got the mix of looks, features and drivability, ensuring that thousands of prospective owners throng Hyundai’s showrooms every month. The waiting periods can get annoying though, so be warned!

Renault Captur: The Captur brings some style to a segment of boxy SUVs. If you want to stand out in the crowd or while munching highway miles, the big Renault is worth a dekko!

Tata Harrier: We don’t see any major deal breakers with the Harrier. It’s loaded, spacious, drives well and is built like a tank. Tata’s best yet? Without a doubt.

Jeep Compass: It’s a Jeep thing, they say. And if you’ve always wanted one, the Compass is a great one to begin with. It’s rock-solid, built to munch miles and ready to get down and dirty. If you can live with the slightly small cabin, it’s a very capable SUV to have in your garage!

ZigSays

If you’re looking at buying an SUV in the Rs 10 lakh - 15 lakh bracket, we’d strongly suggest you take a good long hard look at the Kia Seltos. It's a compact SUV that looks super promising, offers a lot and from our first drive experience lacks very little.

I brought seltos htx one week back.This is my 6 th car following innova crysta,xuv500,duster,Honda city and1dzire.I can safely say that this is best overall car in this price range at present. Seltos is near perfect vehicle by many angles. It's design is fantastic,looks are fantastic,features are fantastic, refinement is excellent,NVH levels are superb,ride quality is superb and easily comparable to my innova crysta, diesel manual mileage is excellent,seat comfort is superb.Back seat of this vehicle occupies 3 people comfortably. Boot space has enough space for luggage of five people for a short trip.I drove this vehicle on really ugly Bhokar-Nanded road of maharashtra(bad is very mild word for this road at present,i think) ,and I can assure you that ,this vehicle has one of the best ride quality which can be easily comparable to my innova crysta in terms of ride quality. Seltos is breeze to drive.I drove petrol GT line also for short distance,and it is also a great variant to own.You can go for either variants as per your needs and choice.Both variants are great. Diesel is giving me 17 kmpl overall at present for 60% highway and 40% city drive with AC 100% on. I hope,Mileage will definitely increase after second service(oil change) to 19 Kmpl overall. Smart air purifier with perfume diffuser is a added advantage.AC is powerful and works fantastically.In my opinion,At present,there is no competitor for seltos,when it comes to overall package. So friends,who are in two minds,JUST GO FOR THIS VEHICLE BLINDLY. YOU CAN PURCHASE ANY VARIANT DEPENDING UPON YOUR NEEDS,AND I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT,MOST OF YOU WILL BE VERY PLEASED TO OWN THIS VEHICLE.
