Kia Motors on Wednesday introduced two new variants for its Seltos SUV, positioning these between the HTX+ and GTX+ trims, as well as X-Line models.
GTX+ (S) and X-Line (S), the new variants, will reduce the waiting period (from 15-16 weeks to 7-9 weeks) of and increase the value proposition of the Seltos, according to Kia.
While the GTX+ (S) is priced at ₹19.40 lakh (ex-showroom), buyers must pay ₹20,000 more for the X-Line (S). Also, these rates are for the Smartstream G1.5 T-GDi petrol engine with 7-speed DCT transmission, and 1.5-litre CRDi VGT diesel engine with 6-speed torque convertor automatic transmission, respectively.
The two new trims will both come with a Level 2 Advanced-Driver Assistance System (ADAS) with as many as 17 autonomous functionalities. Besides, the South Korean auto giant has also equipped the model with an electronic parking brake with auto hold, 18-inch crystal cut alloy wheels (glossy black colour) and a host of features.
Also, if a buyer wants the roof to be painted in black, then they must pay ₹20,000 more regardless of which new trim they are purchaing.
Speaking at the launch event, Hardeep Singh Brar, National Head, Sales and Marketing, Kia India, assured that the deliveries will start before Diwali.

These variants have been carefully designed for the tech-savvy customers who do not want to compromise on the looks, tech, and ADAS-assisted safety systems, but want a quick delivery. It has always been our constant endeavour to offer utmost value to our new-age customers with the best of design and technology,” Brar said, according to HT Auto.
