Kia Seltos Latest Updates

Kia Motors has unveiled a radical Seltos concept called the X-Line at Auto Expo 2020. It is essentially a rugged version of the Seltos, with cosmetic changes to the front and rear end, as well as black and orange inserts. It retains both the feature list as well as its powertrains from the production spec Seltos. Since this is a one-off concept, it is unlikely to ever make it into production.

Kia has hiked the prices of the Seltos from Rs 20,000 to Rs 35,000 depending upon the variant. The updated pricing is already in effect and existing bookings made in 2019 are also subject to the hike.

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, ride quality on the stiff side.

  • Our Verdict

    The Seltos impressed us So much that all we could complain about was a lack of under thigh support and the rather stiff ride quality. 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.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Seltos

Q. Is this car made in india - Seltos (SP2i)?
  • Yes, it will be manufactured in India. Related Read - Kia Allocates $1.29 Billion To Begin Production At Andhra Facility: https://www.zigwheels.com/news-features/news/kia-allocates-129-billion-to-begin-production-at-andhra-facility/30399/

  • Yes but company is Korian
Q. What is the difference in size as compared with Creta - Seltos (SP2i)?
  • It would be difficult to give any verdict here as the Kia SP specification hasn't been revealed yet. We would suggest you wait till is get launched.
  • Launched give comparison
Q. Can't decide between Tata Nexon XZ+ vs Kia Seltos HTX?
  • If you are looking for a stylish SUV with a premium feel, first-in-segment features, good road presence, and all that at an aggressive price tag, then we'd recommend going with Kia Seltos. Moreover, the HTX variant is a good option and delivers good value for the money spent. That aside, this variant gets most of the Seltos’ segment-first features and asks for a healthy but rather acceptable premium too. Also, take a test drive of the car before making the final decision as it would help a lot in making up your mind. Click on the following link for dealership details and select your city accordingly - Kia Car Showrooms
  • Tata Nexon XZ+ is better choice and a value for money car best in segment and performance power comfort is superb Best build quality, Safest car in segment. Tata Nexon is best in segment and Kia Seltos is not worth its price only the top-end model with connected car features is best but its cost is around 17lakhs. I would suggest to go with Tata Nexon XZ+
  • If price is not an issue I will suggest you to go for Kia seltos .Among all its rivals nexon was the best but when its Kia tha top notch quality design features (not as much ad in a nexon) big car feel as nose is long good ergonomics with descent mileage makes it a winner .Service issues Tata has to prove so ad Kia.

Q. How is Kia Seltos to ride?
  • Suspension is designed in such a way that seltos feels firmly planted on the road, with no body roll, but on bad roads, certainly you will feel little bit of bumps /shocks creeping in.Another major factor is test drive & new cars come with 50 psi pressure. If you reduce it to 35 psi, will give more comfortable rides reducing bumps /shocks from the suspension to a major extent.
  • Both the petrol & Diesel are a pleasure to drive. Driving comfort is superb. Diesel torque is addictive. Both manual & automatic transmission, are very comfortable. For driving DCT ( dual clutch transmission) in petrol, you need to assimilate the art of using DCT from Google.
  • Hi Balakrishnan, During test drive experience, it is observed that rear wheels suspension is not good. I can feel the shocks for little uneven roads also. This is quite demotivating for an SUV buyer..Any comments or fixes available for this known issue?Regards,Ramki
View All Answers
Q. Which one should I buy? Kia HTX 1.5 petrol automatic or HTX 1.5 petrol manual - Seltos?
  • Both the variants have its own identity, Here if you'll be driving more in heavy city traffic then we suggest you to opt for Automatic Transmission which is easier to use and more comfortable for the driver, while Manual Transmission vehicles are less expensive more involved & are more fun to drive on highways. Moreover, we would suggest you walk into the nearest dealership to take the test drive of the vehicle. You can click on the following link to see the details of the nearest dealership and selecting your city accordingly - Car Showrooms.
Q. I am planning to buy the HTK+ 1.4 DCT but I have been reading about heating issues and gearbox skipping gears (odd and even). Some have even reported engine noise after 10000 kms. Can someone who has actually driven please highlight some facts. - Seltos?
  • 1) Heating issues are due to faulty driving. Please assimilate the art of driving a DCT (Theory) from Google & put it to practice. There will be absolutely no heating issues.2) odd even gear slipping is not seen in the present crop of cars, though this has been reported in early cars. If at all, it is present, a software updates at the service center will solve the problem.3) kia offers 5 years extended warranty (limited warranty to 1.20 lakh km & unlimited km warranty) so you have nothing to worry.4) just buy a seltos & enjoy life, it is Badass & really in a class of its own. I suggest you test drive both petrol & Diesel version, auto & manual & also the DCT, before you take a final decision on the variant.5) you will appreciate the comfort & power of DCT, only when you test drive the other variants.

    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.

    a good car in terms of feature spec. Spacious cabin. Drive quality is good but not the best. Hyundai Creta provides better drive quality. Features like the 360 Degree camera, air purifier, AC vented seats are pretty nicely implemented. Great fan of the 360 camera. Have been using this feature in narrow lanes. Although the petrol engine is not noisy but you can still hear bit of noise (Not like the Hyundai where the cabin noise is almost zero). In slow speed the vehicles is not that smooth but the moment we cross 30 KM, its pretty smooth. Eco mode makes you feel that the car doesn't have much power.Normal is good overall. Sports has a great power punch but noisy. I prefer normal mode in most of the time.UVO app works fine only when the car eSIM (Vodafone) is under good network coverage. DCT transmission temperature is a serious problem (at least for Bangalore). in bumper to bumper traffic it keeps on getting heated and an alert keeps on coming in the cluster to stop the car. Not sure if this problem will be fixed. But with this we can not drive in Bangalore during peek hours. So far i liked my car until the transmission issue appeared. Now it looks I can not drive it regularly in Bangalore traffic.

    If you are really looking for the rivals of Kia Seltos then there must be your's internal choice to chose what you want and looking for yourself. I rejected xuv300 just because of boot space. Duster was always my first love but novelty and dashboard killed my mindset...Jeep compass certainly impressed me by its dashing look but mileage was the critical point of understanding. Later MG Hector was something new & impressive option but over design & writing BIG internet inside long queuing pulls me back then there was final option Kia Seltos which changed my mind after getting into inside and i was trying to find out fault but only one fault 'highly important' could find was the safety feature 2 airbag given in kia seltos htx plus AT 1.5 diesel automatic variant .I'm still thinking on it why it was compromised and not given 6 airbags. Rest everything is OK. I have drove it 5500kms in couple of months, city 14 Kms highway 18 to 19 Kms mileage without any problem.

    A good car with great handling and advanced features. Pros - styling, power, steering, a/c, HUD, voice command, navigation, 360 camera, parking assist, sunroof, ventilated seats, but worth the money. Cons - tyre size, rear shock absorbers, boss subwoofer, space inside, luggage space, front bumper ground clearance, UVO IOS app, front seat head rest stitching, driver seat thigh support. Could have easily improved few of the items to suit Indian conditions.

Kia Seltos Highlights

Kia’s SP Concept has morphed into an SUV that’s called the Seltos. It will take on the likes of the Hyundai Creta, MG Hector and Tata Harrier. Dimensionally, it’s slightly larger than the Hyundai, and it’s got the squared-off SUV look we love so much. The Seltos will be offered in a total of 9 variants and five powertrain options! It's loaded with many features to set it apart in the crowded segment and notable features include a 10.25-inch floating infotainment system that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connected to a Bose surround-sound system. Segment-first features include a head-up display, 360-degree camera with a blind-spot monitor, sound mood lighting, ventilated seats, etc. The Seltos also features Kia's 'UVO Connect' connected tech which is similar to Hyundai’s Bluelink system that debuted in the all-new Venue.

Seltos Specifications

The Seltos sports a 1.4-litre turbo petrol and a pair of 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines, all of which are BS6 compliant. The 1.4-litre turbo-petrol is 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.

Seltos Variants

The Kia Seltos is 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. The 1.4-litre trubo-petrol motor will be offered in GT K, GT X, GT X+ trims. The GTX+ Diesel Automatic tops off the range and is the only GT range variant available with a diesel engine.

Seltos 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.

Kia Seltos 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!


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.
