As per the requirement, we'd suggest you to go with the 1.5-litre diesel engine of Kia Seltos. The diesel engines are more efficient and use 15−20% less fuel meaning cheaper running costs. The 1.5-litre diesel engine makes 115PS of power and 250Nm of peak torque mated to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Check out the 2019 Kia Seltos First Drive Review for more information.

Both Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta offers a comfortable ride quality and good suspension setup. Kia Seltos features McPherson Strut & Coil Spring front suspension and Coupled Torsion Beam Axle with Coil Spring at the rear which offers pliant and comfortable ride quality. Over the sharp bumps, the car does not feel a bit uncomfortable and even at higher speeds, the ride becomes a delight with well-controlled body movements. In order to know which car would be a more suitable companion, we'd recommend taking a test drive.

If you are looking for a no-nonsense city commuter car with ease of driving then surely you may opt for the 1.5-litre petrol-powered Kia Seltos. It's a compact SUV that looks super promising, offers a lot and from our first drive experience lacks very little. Apart from the strong engines, the Seltos also has a pliant ride quality. At low speeds, you do hear the suspension working, especially over sharp bumps, but you don’t get thrown around or feel uncomfortable. As the speed rises the ride gets flatter, with well-controlled body movements which makes the Seltos a good long-distance cruiser. Moreover, we'd recommend taking a test drive of the car for a better insight into the performance, comfort and compatibility.

Kia has tested seltos over 20 lakh km in india. No issues at all. However if you use BS4 fuel ( Diesel) & commute in top gear ( 6th usually & rarely 5th) & also commute frequently long distance, the yellow light, shows up & you will have to take it to service center & clean / replace DPF (Diesel particulate filter) due to clogging, done free of cost.However take care, to tank up at reputed fuel outlets & keep away from adulterated pumps. Regarding your purchase, grab the seltos at the earliest, & also take 5 year extended limited warranty of 1,20,000 km. Now if you take 5 years unlimited km warranty, the cost goes up by ₹5000.

The 1.5-litre petrol engine in Kia Seltos generates 115PS of maximum power and 144Nm of peak torque, which in consideration of power, is good enough. The engine can be had either with a 6-speed manual or a CVT. Moreover, we'd recommend going with the HTK variant if you are willing to go for the petrol-powered Seltos as it justifies the incremental value unless you require features like push-button start, cruise control, auto-folding ORVMs, LED DRLs, 16-inch metallic alloy wheels, etc. As for the performance, the engine could prove to be a simple no-nonsense petrol option for city commuters and occasional highway drives as well. Moreover, we'd recommend taking a test drive of the car for a better insight into the performance, comfort and compatibility. Follow the link for dealership details - Kia Car Showrooms
