The Kia Seltos is the company's first ever product to be launched in India

Kia Motors has launched its first ever model in India, the all-new Kia Seltos at a starting price of Rs. 9.69 lakh. The prices start from Rs. 9.69 lakh and go up to Rs. 15.99 lakh for the top-spec model. It is the latest entrant in the compact SUV space and has already created quite the buzz in India with its long list of features and of course, good looks. The new SUV is smart, stylish, and most importantly, connected, thanks to the company's connected car system, UVO. Furthermore, the Seltos also comes with a premium and well-equipped cabin loaded with a host of creature comforts, including several segment-first and India-first features.

The Kia Seltos comes with a 5-seater cabin layout with premium quality fit and finish. The SUV gets a clean-looking dashboard with minimal buttons, and one of the largest infotainment displays in this space (10.25 inch). The SUV comes with a sporty flat-bottom steering wheel and nice contoured seats. The Kia Seltos comes in two trim options, Tech Line and GT Line, so both come with a slightly different treatment for the cabin.

Kia will offer three engine options on the Seltos, which are the 1.4-litre GDI turbo petrol, a naturally-aspirated 1.5-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. In fact, all three engines will be BS-6 (Bharat Stage VI) compliant from the time of the launch. The 1.4-litre GDI turbo-charged petrol engine is tuned to churn out 138 bhp and develop 242 Nm of peak torque, while the motor comes mated to a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox. The engine can do a 0-100 kmph sprint in 9.7 seconds, and offer a claimed fuel efficiency of 16.1 kmpl (MT) and 16.2 kmpl (DCT). The 1.4-litre GDI turbo petrol will only be offered with the GT Line trims.

Kia Motors started accepting pre-bookings for the SUV from July 16, and on the first day itself, the carmaker received over 6,000 bookings, with total bookings crossing the 32,000 mark till now. This certainly shows us the kind of attraction the upcoming Kia SUV is garnering. Kia Motors India has currently set up 192 dealerships across 160 cities in India. All these dealerships will feature Kia's internet of things (IoT) theme or the Kia link App which in simple terms means the digital purchase and after-sales services will be available at all Kia dealerships. The Kia Link App will help to schedule a service appointment and the owners will be notified about an upcoming or service due to the reminder, to maintain the vehicle performance.
