    Kia Seltos Summary

    The Kia Seltos was the first SUV from Kia for the Indian car market and has been on sale since 2019. Now in 2021, along with the new brand logo, Kia has introduced two new variants and has also rejigged the existing mid-spec variants with new features and updates.

    In terms of exterior looks, the Kia Seltos remains the same and has a very busy but unique front design. The chrome-finished signature tiger-nose grille is flanked by stylish pair of headlamps which are integrated with LED day-time-running lights. The horizontally stacked fog-lamps also look handsome. At the back, the well-appointed LED headlamps add to the muscular stance of Seltos. There’s chrome slat joining the tail lamps and the sculpted bumper with faux bash plates rounds off the Seltos’ exterior looks. Dimension wise, the Seltos measures 4315x1800x1620 mm with a wheelbase of 2610mm, a ground clearance of 190mm.

    On the inside, along with the existing features like an electric sunroof, ambient lighting, leather seats, leather wrapped steering wheel, front ventilated seats, the mid-spec variants now receive add-ons such as smart-key with remote engine start, new AI voice commands, electronic stability control, brake assist, and vehicle stability management. 

    Powertrain options for the Kia Seltos include a 1.5-litre petrol engine, 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. The 1.5-litre petrol motor is available with a six speed manual transmission, a CVT unit, and a iMT gearbox. The 1.4-litre turbo-petrol motor is offered only with a seven-speed DCT unit with steering mounted paddle shifters. The 1.5-litre diesel motor can be had with a six speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission.

    The Kia Seltos is a rival for the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Nissan Kicks, Renault Duster, and the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross. At the higher end of the Seltos range you can also have mid-spec models of the MG Hector, Mahindra XUV500 and the Tata Harrier.

    CarWale's Take

    • Good Things
      • Design.
      • Interior fit and finish.
      • Feature loaded.
    • Could be Better
      • Notchy gearshifts (MT).
      • Inconsistent ride quality.
      • Top-end trims are expensive.

    Seltos Verdict

    The Seltos is Kia’s first product in India, and it has a lot going for itself. It packs a striking design, is loaded with features to the brim and offers top-notch interior quality in the segment. Sure, Kia Motors could have priced it aggressively; however, you are spoilt for choice with the many variants on offer and the engine/transmission combinations.

    Seltos Review

    We've tested both, the HTX Plus 1.5 diesel manual and the GTX+ 1.4 petrol manual variants of the Kia Seltos. And, this is not a test to ascertain if the diesel contests with the petrol or vice-versa. But it’s crafted to give a buyer an idea of how quick the car is to accelerate and more importantly how it will sprint in the city and highway conditions.

    Introduction

    Kia Seltos Exterior

    It's been a while since Kia launched the Seltos in India, and yet it continues to have a good demand. There's no denying the fact that the Seltos has been one of the most successful launches of 2019. Also, it continues to take the four-metre-plus compact SUV segment by a storm even in 2020. Yes, may be the newly launched Hyundai Creta might regain its lead in its segment in India, but the Seltos still enjoys a massive market share in our country.

    Acceleration

    Kia Seltos Exterior

    A. Acceleration

    0-60kmph diesel

    0-100kmph diesel

    The four-cylinder 1,353cc petrol engine producing 138bhp and 242Nm of torque, definitely feels brisk and has an advantage over the four-cylinder 1,493cc diesel motor, churning out 114bhp and 250Nm of torque. This petrol manual trim did the 0-60kmph sprint in 4.27s and the 0-100kmph in 9.80s. Meanwhile, the diesel version did the same feat in 5.04s and 12.23s respectively.

    Roll on times

    Kia Seltos Exterior

    B. Roll on times

    20-80kmph in third gear

    40-100kmph in fourth gear

    As seen earlier, the diesel will overcome issues like overtaking similar to the petrol as the torque figures are more or less the same. In our in-gear roll-on times of 20-80kmph in third gear, the petrol Seltos took 8.95s while the diesel completed the same run in 9.77s. The petrol manual also sprinted from 40-100kmph in just 10.38s. The oil-burner is heavier than the petrol by 60kg, but still managed a similar time of 11.16s without much bother.

    Hope our purpose of setting these times is clear. If not, do let us know in the comments below. Nonetheless for more clarity, you can read about the full deal here in our comprehensive road test of the Kia Seltos.
