Variant Recommendation

author
The KIA Seltos is available in 7 variants, with the base HTE variant suitable for those seeking basic features and preferring aftermarket personalization. Moving up, the HTK and HTK Plus variants, although a pricier upgrade from the HTE, are recommended for those interested in the turbo-petrol engine without much features. The top-recommended variant in the Seltos lineup is the HTX variant, offering a good number of features and available with both diesel and petrol engines. Notably, this variant is the only one equipped with a naturally aspirated petrol engine paired with an IVT gearbox. Beyond the HTX variant, the HTX+ is a more expensive upgrade, but the GTX+ is worth considering for those looking for all the premium features and the enjoyment of a turbo petrol engine with a DCT gearbox

Should I buy the Seltos?

If you are in search of a well-equipped SUV with an attractive design, the KIA Seltos is a good option to explore. It provides a range of engine choices, a good array of features, and a reliable service network. The Seltos has consistently secured a position among the top-selling SUVs in the Indian market, adding to its appeal in the segment. However, if you prioritize efficiency and a hassle-free experience, the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara is worth considering. Another viable alternative is the Honda Elevate, which offers better value and comes with Honda's well-established and proven 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine

Feature Loaded Interior With Segment First Features 9
  • The Seltos interior has undergone a premium upgrade, displaying new and luxurious colors in the seats and incorporating soft-touch materials on various components. These additions contribute to an elevated overall cabin feel.

  • The updated Seltos now features physical controls for both the infotainment system and air conditioning, offering enhanced convenience and tactile feedback. Noteworthy additions include dual-zone climate control.
  • Furthermore, the center console showcases new control switches and knobs dedicated to climate and music controls, contributing to a more streamlined user experience. The interior aesthetics have also been enhanced, featuring different color themes based on the selected variant.

    The Honda Elevate, the latest addition to the mid-size SUV market, is also a contender against the KIA Seltos. The Elevate provides better value for money compared to the Seltos, but it comes with fewer features and only offers a single engine option—a naturally aspirated petrol engine. In contrast, the Seltos boasts three engine options, including a naturally aspirated petrol, a turbocharged petrol, and a diesel engine. While the Elevate offers excellent ride quality and ample space, the Seltos stands out with a diverse range of features such as dual-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, sunblinds, and more. Both SUVs come equipped with Level 2 ADAS features, but the Seltos has an edge with its 360-view camera and front parking sensors.
