In 2023, the Kia Seltos had a thorough redesign that included several new features and modernized safety technology. The diesel engine remained available with three different engine options: six-speed iMT (manual gearbox without clutch pedal) or six-speed automatic transmission.

With the 1.5-litre diesel Seltos models, Kia has now brought back the option of a 6-speed manual transmission, which was previously dropped with the pre-facelifted model. The Seltos diesel now has three different gearbox options available to it thanks to this modification. This statement was made shortly after the 2024 Hyundai Creta—both SUVs use the same diesel engine—was unveiled. The Creta currently has the option of a manual gearbox.

Other Engine & Transmission Options

Additionally, the Kia Seltos is available with two different gasoline engines: a 1.5-liter (115 PS / 144 Nm) engine mated to a 6-speed manual or CVT, and a 1.5-liter (160 PS / 253 Nm) turbocharged engine mated to a 6-speed iMT (clutchless manual) and an optional 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DCT).

Features & Safety

With the release of the diesel manual versions, the Seltos has not received any feature improvements. Kia’s small SUV is equipped with two 10.25-inch screens (a touchscreen infotainment system and a digital driver’s display), dual-zone temperature control, and a panoramic sunroof. In addition, it has ventilated front seats, ambient lighting, a heads-up display, and an air purifier.

Six airbags, electronic stability control (ESC), tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), 360-degree camera, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) including adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, and front collision warning all contribute to the safety of the passengers.

Price Range & Rivals

The ex-showroom pricing range for the Kia Seltos in Delhi is between Rs 10.90 lakh and Rs 20.30 lakh. The Hyundai Creta, Maruti Grand Vitara, Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun, Honda Elevate, MG Astor, and Citroen C3 Aircross are among the competitors of the small SUV.
