  • The Seltos’ 1.5-litre turbo powertrain is the most powerful and torqueist petrol engine on offer in the compact SUV space. Kia is also the only carmaker here to offer a choice of two petrol engines and four transmission options.

  • Between the Seltos and Elevate’s naturally aspirated engines, it’s the Honda SUV that makes more power and 1 Nm of more torque. It gets the same transmission options as the Seltos with the N.A. unit.

Tata Curvv touchscreen

  • While Tata is yet to reveal the complete features list of the Curvv, it is expected to be a feature-rich offering too. We believe it will get premium comforts such as a panoramic sunroof, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and a bigger 12.3-inch touchscreen from the Harrier-Safari duo.

Honda Elevate touchscreen

  • Even though the Honda Elevate packs features like a 10.25-inch touchscreen and ADAS, it misses out on premium equipment like a panoramic sunroof, 360-degree camera and a fully digital driver’s display as offered on its rivals here.

Price range (ex-showroom)

Rs 10.50 lakh to Rs 17 lakh

Rs 10.90 lakh to Rs 20.30 lakh

Rs 11.58 lakh to Rs 16.20 lakh

While the Tata Curvv is yet to be launched, we are expecting it to have an aggressive introductory price range to attract customers in the crowded compact SUV segment. Its diesel variants are also expected to undercut the Seltos’ top-spec pricing by a big margin. While the Honda Elevate has the costliest entry point of the trio, it’s the Kia SUV whose top-spec variant crosses the Rs 20-lakh mark.
