Kia boasts about receiving 32,035 bookings for the Seltos in the country. Read below to know why you should buy the Kia Seltos –
What’s good about it?
The Kia Seltos offers the segment-first wide range of trim options to suit individual requirements. The SUV gets an interesting set of feature list, which includes eight-speaker system, 360-degree camera, sound mood lighting, sunroof, integrated air purifier, ventilated seats, UVO connect internet connectivity features and more. Additionally, the company offers an automatic option in both petrol and diesel engine option, that too, without compromising on the feature list.
What’s not so good?
The entry-level HTE variant which is priced almost at Rs 10 lakhs misses out on the touchscreen infotainment system. Moreover, the trim also misses out UVO connectivity feature and it instead gets the UVO Lite, a Bluetooth-based remote control mobile app to control the audio and video. The GT Line misses out on a diesel option and it is currently limited to the higher-performing 1.4-litre turbo-GDI engine option.
Best variant to buy?
For customers interested in the Tech Line, the HTX is a good choice for customers interested with a petrol engine as it is available in both manual and automatic options, while customers looking forward to diesel, they can opt for the top-spec HTX+ as it comes in both manual and automatic options. Both the HTX and the HTX+ offer the best of convenience features in the Tech Line variant.
Customers interested in the GT Line can opt for the GTX trim as it can be had in either manual or automatic option along with all a decent amount of feature list. The GTX+ is for those who prefer driving around a fully loaded version of the Seltos.
