The GTX+ variants of the Seltos get a sunroof, ventilated front seats, a 360-degree camera, front parking sensors, leatherette seats, etc.
Kia Motors has introduced 2 new fully-loaded variants of its recently launched compact SUV, the Seltos without much fanfare. The offerings include a new GTX+ petrol model powered by a 1.4-litre petrol engine mated to a 7-speed DCT and a new GTX+ 1.5-litre diesel trim coupled with a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission. Both new models carry a price tag of Rs. 16.99 lakhs (ex-showroom, pan-India).
In terms of features, the Kia Seltos GTX+ variants get ventilated front seats, sunroof, a 360-degree camera, front parking sensors, Bose sound system and leatherette seats additionally over the GTX trim. The GT-Line range gets 6 airbags, an 8-inch heads-up display and rain-sensing wipers whereas the Seltos Tech Line trim misses out on these features.
The Kia Seltos is divided into 2 body-styles, GT Line and Tech Line. With the addition of these 2 new variants, the compact SUV is now available in 18 variants. The Tech Line has 5 variants – HTE, HTK, HTK Plus, HTX and HTX Plus, while the GT Line has 3 – GTK, GTX and GTX Plus. The entire range is spread across 3 BS6-compliant engine options- a 1.5-litre petrol (115 PS and 144 Nm of torque), 1.5-litre VGT diesel (115 PS and 250 Nm of torque) and 1.4-litre Turbo GDI petrol (140 PS and 242 Nm of torque).
The range starts at Rs. 9.69 lakhs for the base petrol manual variant and goes up to Rs 16.99 lakhs (ex-showroom India). At Rs. 16.99 lakhs, the GTX+ petrol DCT and diesel AT variants charge Rs. 1 lakh more over the top-spec GTX petrol DCT and HTX+ AT as both are tagged at Rs. 15.99 lakhs (ex-showroom).
Bookings for the GTX+ petrol automatic and diesel automatic have begun and deliveries are expected to begin sometime early next month.
