  • Q. I would prefer my car for 900 kms highway drive and 300 kms city commute every month. Having stretched my budget to the maximum, I am confused between Kia HTK+ Petrol and HTK Diesel. Is it good to compromise on Cruise control for want of diesel car? Suggestions please. - Seltos?

    If you are one of those people who drive less then 50/60kms in a day then we recommend you to go with a petrol car as they are easy to maintain, have a longer life span and they cost less then the diesel car. Choosing the right fuel type depends on your utility and average running of the car. The Diesel cars are preferred if the average daily run of your car is more than 60kms which makes it feasible for a purchase. The statistics help you to choose a perfect car. The diesel cars are more efficient when it comes to fuel economy and provide more torque, therefore, they are preferred to run a more for a person who drives more than 60kms. Select according to your requirements.

    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.

    Power is very linear, Kia should either provide turbo retrofit or hybrid retrofit kits to the existing customers at a decent price point as an optional accessory, Seltos has created a history benchmark, now assume Hybrid retrofit kit as an accessory can be displayed in showroom and left to buyers to opt for, does I sound innovative campaign for Kia, I received delivery on 31st August HTX Petrol NA variant and have done 18K kms so far.

    After a lot of R&D finally got the Kia Seltos HTE Diesel. I must say, I do not regret my decision. It is an absolute delight to drive this baby. The power is more than adequate to skim through Bengaluru city traffic and out on the highway, you just put your feet down, Seltos does the remaining. Overtaking is never a problem even if you are at speeds over 120 KMPH. Overall a value for money package.
