Kia Seltos, the best selling SUV in the India market has received an update, it includes many new features as well as new colour option and price hike for some variants. Not only this, but eight existing features from the top variant have also been carried down to middle or lower variants.
This was the right time to introduce new features to the variants as its rival from the sister company Hyundai Creta has come with a better list of features. Kia has also added a host of features to the UVO connected car list, making the total list to go above 50+. And now buying a Kia Selto will now be less more confusing as the company has discontinued two variants from their lineup – Smartstream Petrol 1.4T-GDI GTK and GTX 7DCT.
Let’s discuss the 10 new features in Kia Seltos. Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) safety system has been made standard across all variants, what it does is the rear light will start blinking if yo apply sudden brakes over 55kmph. It helps people coming from behind to notice that you have applied emergency brakes. All automatic variant now get Smart-Key Remote Engine Start. The automatic climate control until will now get a silver garnish around it. Kia is also offering a new dual-tone colour now Orange body with White roof with the sunroof option.
Kia’s UVO gets various new features, now it gets very easy to start UVO, just say “Hello Kia” and it will initiate. Kia has introduced some India based features such as to get Live Cricket Score, Information about India holidays and control the Air purifier. We also have an option to connect the UVO Smartwatch and use the features through it. Features such as Rear USB charger and front tray USB Charger are now been made standard across all variants. Now even the HTK+ variant gets Leatherette Gear Knob, Black Leatherette Interior and Dual Muffler design.
Below is the table comparing the new prices with the old ones.
The engine and transmission option remains the same. With these set of new features and rearranging the feature for the lower segment, Kia Seltos feels more equipped to take on the competition. The funny thing is that the base variant and top variant has the same pricing as before, while all the variants in between have received some sorts of price change!
