The 2023 Kia Seltos also comes with a price hike of ₹50,000; the entry-level HME petrol manual variant is priced at ₹10.89 lakh, while X-Line diesel automatic variant is available for ₹19.65 lakh (both prices ex-showroom).
2023 Kia Seltos: Features and specifications
(1.) This version of the compact SUV now meets the BS6 Phase 2 and RDE emissions, both of which will come into effect starting April 1.
(2.) The model comes with idle start-stop as standard. This feature maximises fuel efficiency, especially in ‘stop-and-go’ situations; the addition of this feature is among the reasons why 2023 Seltos is priced higher than the car’s previous version.
(3.) It is offered only in the 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol and 1.5-litre turbo diesel options.
(4.) The petrol unit comes paired with the 6-speed manual and CVT options. The diesel option, on the other hand, gets a new 6-speed iMT gearbox.
(5.) Also, in the diesel unit, the 6-speed torque convertor has been continued, while the 6-speed manual has been done away with.
