Automatic gearbox-equipped variants of the Seltos HTK+, HTX, HTX+ and GTX will see the addition of remote engine start. The HTX and GTX will soon get a powered sunroof and LED cabin lights, features formerly available only on the HTX+ and the GTX+ trims. Apart from these equipment additions, all variants will come with features like USB charging for the first and second rows of seats and an emergency stop signal as standard.
Kia Seltos interior upgrades
The range-topping Seltos GTX+ – offered with either a 140hp, 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine or a 115hp, 1.5-litre diesel mill – will soon get an all-black interior with contrasting red stitching. Additionally, the HTX, HTX+, GTX and the GTX+ trims will come with faux metal garnish on the AC control panel as well as on door grab handles. Lower down the range, the Seltos HTK+ variant will get a faux leather finish on the gear knob and a gloss black finish on the dashboard.
Kia Seltos exterior changes
All variants – except the HTE and the HTK – will soon come with the dual exhaust design on the rear bumper that's seen on the higher versions. Kia will also include metal scuff plates on the HTX and the HTX+ variants; this was earlier available only on the GTX and the GTX+ trims.
When does it go on sale?
With the easing of lockdown restrictions, Kia dealers have started re-opening pan-India. Likely to be accompanied by a mild hike in prices, the Seltos with the updated features list will go on sale in the coming months. With the all-new Hyundai Creta in the news, Kia is sure doing its bit to keep the attention on its bestselling SUV.
