Kia Seltos Review


Like the Creta, the Seltos also has the square and upright look that Indians love. The Seltos is also a bit bigger than the Hyundai Creta. It is 45mm longer, 20mm wider and the wheelbase is longer by 20mm too. However, in terms of height, it is less than the Creta. This is because the Seltos is built on a new platform on which the next generation Creta, due to be launched in 2020, has also been made.

Measurements Kia Seltos Hyundai Creta Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Nissan Kicks Renault Duster Renault Captur
Length 4315mm 4270mm 4300mm 4384mm 4360mm 4329mm
Width 1800mm 1780mm 1785mm 1813mm 1822mm 1813mm
Height 1620mm 1665mm 1595mm 1656mm 1695mm 1626mm
Wheelbase 2610mm 2590mm 2600mm 2673mm 2673mm 2673mm

The Seltos has a lot of presence and the grille makes it look wider still. The full-LED headlamps and the LED bar that extends into the grille give it a premium look that is also very distinctive in the dark. Lower variants of the Seltos won’t get the LED bar and use projector lamps instead of the LED units.


Kia is offering the Seltos in two trim lines - Tech Line for families and the GT Line for sportier personalities. This includes bigger silver bash plates at the front and rear. A red accent is used on the skid plates, the cladding on the side and even the brake calipers are finished in red. The GT Line also gets distinctive crystal-cut 17-inch alloy wheels. There is another 17-inch alloy wheel design on offer while lower variants get 16-inch alloys or 16-inch steel wheels. 


Premium, that’s how the cabin of the Seltos feels. The cabin design, the choice of colour combinations, the quality of materials and the finish make it look like it costs well over Rs 20 lakh. Cleverly, all the touch points - like the steering wheel,  the gear lever, the elbow pad on the door and the crashpad on the dash - have soft-touch leather on it. The leather-wrap for the flat-bottomed steering wheel deserves a special mention as it wouldn’t be out of place on an Audi either. On that note, the quality of the steering-mounted buttons and the silver finish used around the centre console felt worthy of a luxury car. Other than this, Kia has made use of hard plastics which undoubtedly will help keep the price in check. Thankfully, everything is designed sensibly. The aircon vents are large and you can shut each one as well and the armrest between the front seats is well placed too. 


While the Tech Line makes do with white coloured seats with hexagonal quilting, the GT Line gets either dual tone seats or an all black leather with horizontal ridges and contrast stitching. This variant also gets brushed aluminium pedals to up the sporty quotient. On the comfort front, the front seats will prove to be wide enough for large occupants. Finding the right driving position is much easier on the GTX+ and GTX+ variants as they feature an 8-way power adjustable driver seat and rake and reach adjustable steering wheel. On lower variants, the under thigh support ends up feeling a bit lacking, especially for the front passenger.


The same applies even to the rear seat where taller passengers will feel  that a higher set seat would have improved comfort. Thankfully, there is enough kneeroom and headroom to stretch out and make yourself comfy. The two-step recline adjustable seat backrest and manual sunshades for the windows will help you relax too. Also, you don’t feel cooped up as the window line is low and that makes the cabin feel airy.

And no, there is no third row. Instead you have 433 litres of boot space, which puts it at an advantage over the Creta’s 400-litre boot. While the boot is wide and deep, letting you pack in plenty of luggage, the boot floor is a bit high. 

Measurement Kia Seltos Hyundai Creta Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Nissan Kicks Renault Duster Renault Captur
Boot Space 433 litres 400 litres 353 litres 400 litres 475 litres 392 litres


Kia is offering six engine and transmission combinations on the Seltos. All engines on the Seltos are already BS6 compliant and Kia says that they have been tested on BS4 fuel too. The top-of-the-line petrol engine is a 140PS 1.4 litre turbocharged unit which is available with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed dual-clutch (automatic) transmission. In manual guise, the engine feels energetic for highway use, yet easy to live with in the city. The clutch is light, the engine is responsive from under 1500rpm and when you want to accelerate fast, it revs quickly to deliver a strong punch. As expected of a petrol motor, it is smooth and quiet too. 

  Kia Seltos Hyundai Creta Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Nissan Kicks Renault Duster Renault Captur

Things are a bit different with the automatic transmission-equipped version of the 1.4 litre petrol engine. For city use, it will take some getting used to as the power delivery and the gearshifts feel out of sync in stop-go traffic. To its credit, the transmission is so quick and smooth that you can’t even make out when it shifts gears. However, it is a bit too eager to shift up and down and these aren’t timed too well with the kick from the turbo. This results in sudden and unnecessarily rapid acceleration alternating with unwanted dullness. This makes it feel a bit tiring to drive at slow speeds. Thankfully, the drive modes come to the rescue. The Eco mode slows down the gearboxes eagerness and even softens power delivery, making it a lot more calm and almost enjoyable even for city use. The Sport mode would be great for overtaking on the highway as it holds onto a lower gear for longer, making it very responsive. 

Kia claims a fuel efficiency of 16.1kmpl for the manual and 16.5kmpl for the automatic versions. However, the tested efficiency for the 1.4L MT came out to be 11.51kmpl in the city and 18.03kmpl on the Highway. For the 1.4L DCT, the tested efficiency came out to be 11.42kmpl in the city and 17.33kmpl on the highway.

80-0kmph 26.43m 25.51m
City Efficiency 11.51kmpl 11.42kmpl
Highway Efficiency 18.03kmpl 17.33kmpl

The Seltos is also offered with a 1.5-litre petrol engine which will be the entry level petrol offering.  It comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a CVT (automatic) transmission. This engine wasn’t available on the media drive. This is a pity because the CVT variant might prove to be the simple no-nonsense petrol option for city commuters. Kia claims a fuel efficiency of 16.5kmpl (manual) and 16.8kmpl (CVT) for this engine. 

For diesel buyers, Kia is offering a 1.5-litre engine with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed planetary (automatic) gearbox. We will complement this engine by saying that it doesn’t feel very diesel-like. It is smooth and refined, the clutch is light and it responds smartly even under 1500rpm. So, it can be quite enjoyable for everyday commuting in the city. The automatic transmission combination is even more impressive, as it cuts out the hassle of gear changes but without the clumsiness associated with autos. Despite its modest output of 115PS, it feels capable for high-speed cruises. After 3500rpm, the noise associated with diesel engines becomes obvious. However, you don’t need to rev it hard often.

Kia claims a fuel efficiency of 22.1kmpl (manual) and 18kmpl (auto) which are marginally higher than Hyundai’s claimed efficiency for the Creta - 20.5kmpl and 17.6kmpl, respectively. 

At high speeds and on broken roads the Seltos feels like a healthy combination of car and SUV. It takes the harshness out of potholes and bumps with ease and yet it feels very composed and confident at higher speeds. The all-wheel disc-brakes on higher variants give it added confidence. While the Seltos isn’t meant for off-roading, Kia provides terrain modes on the petrol automatic which help it adapt to slush, mud and rocky terrain.


The Seltos is offered dual-airbags with ABS and EBD as standard. Only the GTX and GTX+ variants come with six airbags. These variants also get Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) and hill hold. Yes, you can’t have this with the diesel engine or the 1.5 litre petrol engine either. The diesel also misses out on the 360-degree surround view camera. Thankfully, the optional front parking sensors and tyre pressure monitoring system are offered on the Tech Line’s HTX and HTX+ variants.


The Seltos will be available in more than 16 variants. Kia will use a dual-trim strategy with the Tech Line meant to appeal to family buyers and the GT Line to the more enthusiastic audiences. The lineup includes HTE (for Energy), HTK (Klass), HTK+, HTX (eXciting) and HTX+. The GT line will skip the GTE variant and stick to the GTK , GTK+, GTX and GTX+ variants. 

The base E variant will get 16-inch steel wheels, projector headlamps, keyless entry, central locking, steering mounted audio controls, a four-speaker sound system and a manual air-conditioner too. So, it is fairly well loaded. Safety equipment as standard includes dual airbags, ABS with EBD and reverse parking sensors. 

However, the really wow features - be it the LED lighting or technology like Kia’s UVO Connect connected car system, and the head-up display - are available in the X variants. On top of this, the X+ variants get the electric sunroof, the 8-way power adjustable driver seat, the premium Bose sound system, 7-inch MID for the driver, a 360 degree camera, blind view monitor, front parking sensors and ventilated front seats.
