Much Anticipated Kia Seltos All Set To Hit The Roads Soon
Kia Seltos which is likely to compete against the likes of Hyundai Creta, MG Hector, Renault Captur and Tata Harrier, will be open for booking in July. Meanwhile, the company has warned the customers to stay away from fraudulent websites. The range will be in between Rs 10 lakh and Rs 16 lakh (ex-showroom).
It has been understood that a few of the dealerships have already started to accept bookings unofficially ever since the ad featuring Tiger Shroff came out.
The car measures in at 4315mm in length, 1800mm in width and 1620mm in height. Though, it is a bit longer and wider than the Creta, it falls behind when it comes to height. The ground clearance for Seltos stands at 190mm, along with the 433 litres boot.
The lower variants of the Seltos will run on 16-inch wheels shod in 205/65-section tyres, while the top-end models will get 17-inch alloy alloy wheels wrapped in 215/60-section tyres.
Kia Seltos will be a BSVI (BS6) compliant 1.4 litre Turbo GDI petrol engine that makes 140 hp and 242 Nm of torque. The alternate options include a 1.5-litre petrol engine producing 115 hp and 144 Nm of torque and a 1.5 litre diesel powertrain mill that delivers 115 hp and 250 Nm of torque.
All the three engines will be available with a standard 6-speed gearbox. As far as the automatic options are concerned, the Turbo GDI powertrain will come with a 7-speed DCT, with the 1.5 litre petrol getting a CVT and the 1.5 litre diesel 6 speed torque converter.
The offering from Kia can be availed at numerous colors such as red, black, blue, orange, Glacier White, Clear White, grey and silver. Additionally, it also comes with red/black, glacier white/black, silver/black and glacier white/orange two-tone exterior paint shade combinations.
