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!

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.

Primary rivals for the Seltos include the Hyundai Creta, MG Hector, Tata Harrier and Mahindra XUV500.

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. My running is 20000km per year I should buy Seltos HTK G or HTE diesel?
  • As your daily driving is above 1500km per month, we would suggest you go for the HTE diesel as the diesel cars are more efficient when it comes to fuel economy and provide more torque, therefore, are preferred to run a more for a person who drives more than 60kms.

Also, take a test drive of the car before making the final decision as it would help a lot in making up your mind.

  • 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+ : By Mayank | 1 month ago
  • 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. : By Joshy | 4 days ago
Q. Which is the best variant to buy in Kia Seltos?

Q. What about the sound system and type of speakers provided in Kia Seltos HTX? Is navigation system available in HTK model?
  • HI, I AM USING THE HTK MODEL SINCE 2 WEEKS AND THE SOUND SYSTEM IS VERY BAD AS THE SPEAKERS ARE FLAT AND I NEED TO CHANGE THEM.. RIGHTLY SAID BACK SPEAKERS ARE HARDLY HEARD. THE NAVIGATION CAN BE USED WITH ANDROID AUTO...I.E.. WHEN YOUR PHONE IS CONNECTED VIA USB PORT TO THE SYSTEM.HTX MUSIC SYSTEM IS ALSO SAME... AS I SAW ONE MORE HTX OWNER CHANGING THE SPEAKERS FROM THE SAME SHOP. ONLY MODELS FROM HTX+ AND ABOVE HAVE BOSE SYSTEM. :( : By Dhaval | 3 weeks ago
  • I am using HTX variant and the sound system is highly disappointing. No sound in back door speakers, sound is audible only when the sound bar is set at the maximum of 45. You won’t find any demo or video of this Arkamys system fitted in Kia Seltos anywhere online. Highly disappointing. Returning the car back. : By Arpana | 2 months ago
  • Highly disappointed with the sound loudness... It needs to be tweeted... As rightly said u can only really hear it well once the volume is set at 45..i need to head to after market speakers now for better quality cause the current music output sucks big time. : By Harshail | 2 months ago

    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.

    SELTOS IS A PERFECT CAR FOR CITIES AND TOURING AS ITS NOT TOO HUGE NEITHER SMALL. ITS A SILENT CAR WITH AN AVERAGE PICK UP. I HAD A HYUNDAI VERNA TRANSFORM WHICH HAD THE BEST PICK UP IN ITS SEGMENT, SO I AM A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED. BUT OVERALL EXPERIENCE TILL NOW IS GOOD AS ITS JUST 2 WEEKS OLD.;)
